Jack Nowell reveals he’s planning on switching positions

England and Exeter Chiefs speedster Jack Nowell has revealed he’s keen to try a new position one day as he continues to recover from his latest injury setback.

The England international winger has not featured much this season after going under the knife for a foot/toe injury which he played through the pain with as Exeter won the European and domestic double in October.

Speaking on The Good, The Bad and The Rugby, Nowell revealed: “I would like to change position one day as I get older.’

The winger, who has played a little bit at outside-centre, added: “Some wingers nowadays are so quick you know,.

“I’ll always back myself to do a job, but obviously the bigger and older you get I’d be really keen to give centre another good go.”

DID YOU KNOW? When Jack Nowell was called up for the British and Irish Lions in 2017, he became the first player to be called up from the Exeter Chiefs


5 rugby players who switched positions with mixed results

1. Tom Youngs – Centre to Hooker

Youngs is the son of former Leicester and England scrum-half Nick Youngs, and the elder brother of current Leicester and England scrum-half Ben Youngs. Originally a centre/winger he changed to play at hooker after advice from then Tigers’ coach Heyneke Meyer.
