As the title says ,Could Chris Lawrence Move into the Middle ?
Here me out here . He’s still a good runner of the ball , has a quick play the ball and is very strong defensively as well as he’s extremely fit.
It would also limit his 3 biggest flaws moving forward
- He has hands like feet. Usually from dropping balls whilst hitting a hole . Middles tend to not have to run that crash ball as much .
- His lateral defence. He won’t have to cover way more dynamic 2nd towers eg. Nikora, Tapine ,Fifita . And he’s big enough and strong enough to match the intensity of the middle .
- His speed . He would actually be an asset speed wise in the middle. Not a liability .
There is a precedence to this . Ruben Wiki started in the centres and ended up a very good to elite middle .
