BT said himself upon his arrival at Wakefield that he had played as a winger his whole career, right from coming through the junior grade up until his season at Canberra and that centre was a relatively new position for him. His centre play has improved a hell of a lot since he has been here at Wakefield, as Vastman alluded to a lot of people kept banging on that he would never make a centre... How he has proved them people wrong.

True even had the nickname while starting at the Warriors in the NRL as the 'mini beast' after Manu Vatuvei who also played on the wing for them.

There is no doubt Tupou is good for us in the centre
But I'd still move him to the wing as he can still make a lot of ground for us and knows the position.
Lyne has played there but I never felt comfortable when he did.
And Arundel can set TJ away to get him the tries he needs.

Tbh I can see both sides of the argument and it'll be interesting which way he goes. I wouldn't be surprised if he does put Bill on the wing because he has more gone that way when he's needed to than Lyne of recent times. it probably makes more sense when you think that Arundel plays centre on the same side as Bill as well, so almost like for like swap around.

Nope. He stays where he is. Tupou has to adapt.

Arundel can play either centre position so it doesn't matter who moves.

Yep, this. Obviously, if he does move Tupou to cover BJB, Arundel slots into his position as he seems adept at playing at either left or right centre and Bill will do his job no matter what side of the park he's on.

Tbh even with MCB gone, it's not a real headache is it when you can move either centre to cover BJB and you've got someone with Arundel's qualities waiting to slot in.

I understand your point, but Bill has been outstanding for all this season at centre.
