Mark Gasnier: Gareth Widdop Should Play Fullback in 2016
Mark Gasnier believes Gareth Widdop should play the Fullback role for St George Illawarra Dragons in 2016, allowing Josh Dugan to switch to the Centres.
Do you agree with Gasnier?
“Gareth Widdop, they got themselves into so many three-on-two situations this year and Dugan didn’t have the pass selection to make that final pass,” Gasnier says in Thursday night’s Summer Series program on Fox.
“Gareth Widdop is probably the best in the team at doing that so I think he would be best suited at fullback.
“He’s played it before, doesn’t have a problem with the amount of running.
“The high ball might be a bit of a question.
“I think points is where they suffered, defence they got right.”
