This is maybe one for Smithy.....

Could anyone tell me the positions of the following players?

Charlie Wilson - Inside or Outside centre and can he play wing?

Ben Stevenson - Inside, Outside centre or Wing?

George Wacokecoke - Inside or Outside centre or Wing?

Will Montgomery - Primarily a lock that can play 6?

Tom Marshall - Openside or Blindside? Can he play 8?

Many Thanks in advance

When he was at Kendal, I (think) I can recall seeing Will playing at 4,5, 6, 7 & 8 and I think I can remember him playing with the pretty boys in the backs on one occassion. He was a very fit and athletic player.
Since becoming an Academy player, he looks to have packed on quite a bit of lean muscle !

His probsbly wont answer your question directly...but I've always had the impression that Dean like his players to have the skills and ability to play multi positions...and you can see how he works that in the senior squad

Ie Stevensson has played wing and 13

Tom Penny has played wing, 13, 12, 15,

Alex Tait and Arscott cover wing and 15

The back row boys cover 6, 7, 8

Calum Green, Sean Robinson are locks but we've seen them at 6 many times.

He even likes the odd prop who can play LH and TH...

The odd one may then specialise...like Wakecoke looks like he may become a 10...
