Does anyone know of any other player who has played in every position for the same club? Gary achieved this at York in the late seventies / early eighties I believe.

...and was equally good in every position I suspect.

Sam Panapa at Wigan played in every position in his time at the club. Best utility player ever.

Brett McDermott at Barrow has started in every position from Full back to loose forward.

Last I heard of him was some years back as conditioner for NZ Warriors. Must be 10 years ago at least. Fine player.

I don't know about that I honestly can't recall seeing him play, but a unique achievement nevertheless.

Could be wrong but I think he was in and out of the Leeds team when Wardy was hooker.  Sheffield, I could imagine he played a few positions in there.  Did he play for a Cumbrian side??  Don’t know of any others.

The OP said York and I think that he also played for Fartown.

Could be.  I cannot imagine him in the outside backs or FB.  With all respect to GH, of course.  If he was, he was, but Leeds, Sheffield and one of the Cumbrian clubs I remember him.

Kevin O’Loughlin at Wigan certainly played in most if not all positions.

Have found records of Kevin O’Loughlin being selected at least once in all back positions and also at 11, 12 and 13 but not in the front row.

Not every position but Liam Sutcliffe has played full back, centre, stand off, 2nd row and loose forward. 

Maybe not started there, but i'm sure i've seem him do a stint on the wing one time he was at centre and covered for an injury. Very versatile player who should get more recognition at Leeds. Just 9 and prop to go....
