If you read what I have said earlier in this thread I have not said he should never be played back, in fact have no issue with him taking some kickins, I just would like to see him used in a position where his positives are of more value to the team and team results and his negatives are exposed less. Sometimes there will be a role in the backline he just simply is not a key to the back 6Fair point. I'll say then that a lot of people had the opinion he should be dropped while playing forward in 2018. Luke Beveridge has the opinion he was playing at an AA level before his injury this year.
History represents what happened, yep and it was an instantaneous turnaround in form once he moved position. You could say he's developed and would be better now as a forward but his development as a player also applies to him playing back in the same time. We have true instance of him moving position and the immediate impact that made in his output though. You could hang hopes on his development since then but it makes no sense so think it wouldn't apply across the board.
