Just a conversation starter - does anyone here think Will could be a good centre?

Agree. fullback/five eight/winger only positions possible
I think he is an out and out FB, and could see him moving into 5/8 potentially in a couple years but more likely not. Maybe if he got dropped from FB for Hynes and we had an injury or two on wing he could pop up there.
If anything Hynes would make more sense to me than WK for centre.

I think he could probably succeed anywhere in the back 5, but it definitely wouldn't be worth the experiment with how good he has been.

I think you want hynes to touch the ball as much as possible. Not sure centre is a good use for him.

Thought he went ok on the weekend. Was pretty safe and looked likely at times bringing the ball back

Threw a wayward pass that was lucky not to be intercepted had it not been spilled

Liked that he was willing to try the chip or was that Trindall. In for a big year regardless I feel

Trindall chipped for Will. Shame it didn't come off.

Had he gone over the top instead of a flat pass, the indigenous team would have been in themselves.
Right thought, wrong execution.
To me that is still a good sign.
Execution can be worked on.

I wonder also if the bad conditions made him go for the short pass rather than trusting himself to go for the over the top pass

It was a no look tap on his pass wasn't it?

He did it very quick , think was just trying to get it out to his wider man regardless. kinda went through the motions a bit there, fairly standard play

prob didnt wanna get smashed too
