Billy Slater to Slot Back into Maroons Fullback Position


Newly appointed Queensland Maroons Coach Kevin Walters has confirmed that a fully fit Billy Slater will slot back into the Fullback role for the Queensland Maroons.

Should Greg Inglis or Billy Slater play Fullback for Queensland?

“Billy will go back to fullback and Greg will go back to the centres so that will mean [Will] Chambers can go into Hodgo’s spot at right centre. That’s how I see it at the moment,” Walters said.

“Billy brings so much to the side.

“He brings a lot of energy, his speed, his acceleration and his communication and his all around game.

“Billy’s got to get back playing but if you look back over the past five or six years, in all those Queensland wins Billy Slater is pretty prominent at fullback.”
