Yea I don't know. All I can say is that they are too good to be wasted in one position. Which is sad for the players involved but it does make team selection a little easier. Rule of thumb though. If my laaitjie is ever good enough to be a very good rugby player. I will do my best to make sure he plays one position and one only. Obviously things will change as they become teens. But once they become a jack of all trades that is what they will be for their entire career.At Craven Week you'd probably find most of those players would have been played at flyhalf as the coach would have wanted them to be as involved in the game as he could get them. At the upper levels they get moved around so much that they can never settle and cement a spot. Some new specialist golden boy comes on the scene and they get shunted to the bench due to their ability to cover lots of positions.
