Western Bulldogs key forward Jamarra Ugle-Hagan has been recognised in the final 2023 AFLPA 22under22 team.

Ugle-Hagan is one of three Bulldogs to have made the cut, joining Cody Weightman as maiden inclusions, and Bailey Smith who has achieved a fourth consecutive appearance.

Ugle-Hagan was also the second-most popular player included, featuring in 88% of fan-voted teams, following his impactful 11.4 average disposals, 5.3 above average marks and career-best 34 goals for the season so far.

The 21-year-old was named at half-forward.

Smith, 22, featured in 75% of teams, averaging 23.5 disposals (elite), 3.5 tackles and 3.6 clearances to be named on the interchange bench.

Weightman, 22, has averaged 10.3 disposals and 2.8 marks to go with 32 goals, earning himself a spot on the half-forward flank.

The Bulldogs’ trio also marked the second-most representatives in the final team, behind Fremantle’s four players.

Collingwood’s Nick Daicos was voted captain, while Hawk Jai Newcombe was voted vice-captain.

The fan-voted concept was introduced to the men’s competition in 2013 to reward young players aged 22 and under who make an impact on their club and the wider competition. 

For a player to eligible, they must have played 50% of the season (equating to 12 matches).
