'Superb'?!? I'm seriously beginning to doubt your abilities in player assessment!

Scott Roberts. A player that could point both left and right with equal skill and dexterity whatever position played

Sorensen was supposed to be seriously quick as a youngster.

 

His temperament remained so.

Neil Fox is another one who went from wing/centre and right through the forwards to the front row.

A versatile player in my mind should be a player that can play in several positions at a given time in his career.

A player that fills out as he gets older and perhaps slower and moves to the forwards is just that, he can no longer play in the backs anymore.

 

Menzies and SBW a a couple of the few top notch players that are really forwards that can do well also as a Centre.

As did King Kurt

 

 

He started 15 times for Wigan when a baby, twice at centre all the others in the second row.

One thing that I never understood about Woods was why he went to Bradford when he left Leigh. Surely, at the peak of his career, he would have had his pick of the top clubs?
