Playing a kid at the opposite end of the ground in order to improve their feeling for the game isn't anything new. You can afford to make glaring mistakes as a forward without being immediately punished on the scoreboard (and subsequently scrutinised). Nash has been well shielded from media criticism as a result.
Is it so crazy to think the coaches envisage a back six role for him? It feels inevitable tbh
I think he could be a weapon at CHB

Nash's weapons are his speed and running power. Playing half forward uses those physical attributes in the most effective way. Nash is playing forward he is no chance to go back.
That‘s exactly right.
His speed in breaking the lines and particularly in running towards goal to open space makes him a weapon that’s hard to counter. Playing as a half back minding an opponent takes away that massive advantage as a half forward he otherwise gives us.

Of course it's not beyond reason to see him as a back. You have declared that he can never be a forward, and only a back. Is it so crazy that he might make it as a forward?
