It's only a game ...
In the past, naturally gifted footballers could easily play wing, even if it wasn't their preferred position. Garrick is a good example of this. He made a great transition from centre to wing when he came to Manly.I agree with most the teams posted here. But in my opinion, if we are talking full strength team, I don't think we can carry Weekes in the 17 long term. Before you all freak out, hear me out.
Let's look at it practically, the only possible available position he can maybe take in our strongest starting side is wing. But it doesn't work out, he hasn't trained on the wing, never played on the wing, will be risky to have him there defensively in big games. Add to the fact it means we have to push Garrick into the centres and Parker out the 17, I really doubt we will see this happen. Garrick is a world class winger now and should really not move from that position, and Parker is just one of those players you can't see being dropped now.
And then Kaeo's position in the 14 is clouded, because I believe if we want to become a premiership level team we need a high calibre 9, therefore Gordon Chan Kum Tong at MINIMUM has to be 14 by the end of year. He's our long term plan for 9, he's our missing piece to the premiership puzzle, we know he's ready, he has to be there. Therefore, we cannot carry both GCKT and Weekes on the bench, it's too light, and GCKT also probably won't be a full 80 minute hooker by then so can't move Croker out the team for Weekes.
It's a sticky situation, but if we are talking our strongest 17 by the end of the year, I really don't think it's practical for us long term that Weekes will be there.
When reference to Weekes, a smaller framed fullback named Slater played in the centres in his early Storm games and played on the wing in his first three games for QLD. High balls & wing positional play will be no problem for Weekes - he is a very talented footballer. If he copes defensively, he will be a much more dangerous attacking proposition than Tuipulotu.
Until Garrick has the opportunity to play a couple of games at centre, we won't know his true defensive capabilities in that position. If his defensive work in the centres is solid, then his superior attack would make it a no brainer to select him ahead of Parker (providing there are good wingers on both sides of the field).
Of course, Chan Kum Tong is needed as an impact dummy half. There won't be a clash for this position if Weekes is in the thirteen. As I posted elsewhere, I think Weekes is one of the seven most talented backs in our squad, and on this basis should be in the starting side each week.
Last week we got a taste of Schuster's potential for attacking genius at five eighth. At this early stage of his career, I think it would be counterproductive to move him back to the forwards as this would increase his defensive workload & likely dull his attacking edge.
Edit: Koula & Weekes have played a lot of junior football together, so pairing them together on the same side of the field would hopefully result in good defensive & attacking combinations.
