This is the wing defender in your team, who has the largest effect upon your wing defence ratings.
Wingbacks also contribute to attack ratings, through the use of their wing skill.
Contribution to Wing Attack Ratings
The largest contributor to each wing attack rating is the wing skill of your wingers. Here are the components of left wing attack in the order of their relative contribution as listed in the rules:
- Winger left winger
- Winger left wing back
- Scoring forwards
- Passing left winger
- Passing left inner midfielder
- Winger forwards
- Passing forwards
So wing skill on your winger, especially if played offensive, gives you more wing attack than the wing skill of your wingback.
How to play your Wingback
Wing skill on wingbacks is helpful, but it can't be relied upon to deliver a wing attack on its own like the wing skill of a good winger can.
You can also get a larger boost to the wing attack by playing your wingback offensive, but this should only be used with caution as it is an extreme order that reduces the defensive qualities of the player for the gain of some more wing attack.
A "normal" wingback gives you the maximum skill contribution by the player with-out any penalty to the overall performance of the player, just like other "normal" postitions in your starting 11.
