    Jack Wighton is a centre playing fullback.
    Put him in the centres I think he'd be a decent player.

    He had a good season last year. That alone puts him ahead of hundreds of ex NRL players.

    & the first thing he done was purchase two quality halves from elsewhere.

    I still think Mitch Cornish could have been special.

    Really ? Hes not doing much at parra.

    Also wighton has been marked as a future 5/8 for years. It wasnt just stuart trying something. The lengths people go to blame stuart for things is weird. Not that he doesnt share responsibility for the season overall.,maybe wighton is going through a form slump, maybe he just isnt going to kick on. He has a pretty bad attitide from all reports.

    He won't help Jack.

    Not sure what's happened to him this year but he seems to have broken.

    I've never seen him as a fullback, and he's also proven he's definitely not a 5/8. He had some use at wing early on, he could go there for a bit if Lee is injured

    had a terrible 1st half and looks massively unsure of himself at fullback... was better in the second half but yeah bit of a mystery what to do with this bloke
