England legend still doesn’t see Elliot Daly as a winger

England legend Jason Robinson has revealed he still doesn’t see Elliot Daly’s best position going forward being on the wing.

“I still don’t see Elliot Daly as a winger even though he has come in and done a fantastic job,” Robinson, who was speaking on behalf of Land Rover at the annual HITZ Awards, told City A.M.

“I certainly rate him as a player. He has taken his opportunity on the wing when he has been playing at centre more and he has gone on the Lions tour and done some good stuff there.

“He has also scored tries for England from the wing but I still don’t see him as a winger. Every time his name comes up, I just don’t see it. But that’s not to take anything away from him.

“He’s been one of England’s most consistent performers, but when you look at [Anthony] Watson or [Jonny] May, you see that pace and footwork and it’s more suited to being on the wing, whereas Daly is more suited to being in the centre.”
