Josh Dugan Set to Switch Back to Fullback


Coach Paul McGregor has hinted that Josh Dugan will switch back to his preferred Fullback position for the remainder of 2016 season.

Is Fullback Dugan’s best position?

“We’ve put a lot of work into (Dugan’s move to centre) in the pre-season and it’s only two games into the competition,” McGregor said.

“But he averaged 160 metres last year from the back and we’re certainly not getting that out of our back three at the moment. So we’ll look at that.

“I’ve also always said that Josh is one of the best, if not the best, defensive fullback in the game.

“And Josh isn’t getting any clean ball but he’s not getting any clean ball because we’re not getting field position because we’re turning the ball over.”
