Grizzly old fart

The simple answer is because he is only suited to the wing in union and no where else...
The brumbies tried to play him elsewhere and had less success than we did.
He is an individualist and has no concept of how to use people around him,he has no ability to play as a fullback in rugby league and is why he is now in union.If he played fullback at NRL level he would be throwing 30 metre passes to avoid being tackled(love a grubber kick in your own end goal to avoid being tackled).
End of thread,if he had more ability he would be more than a winger in union.....
Actually he plays in several positions with the Brumbies including stand off, centre, wing and full back, but yes he's been recently on the wing. He generally plays outside centre or wing for the Canberra Vikings. He is seen as a sensation for the Brumby fans as reported and in consideration for Wallaby selection, but yes he still has to seal is position in the Brumbies. Got to remember he's been playing RL for many years and now has to readapt to RU positioning.
