I'm wee, in stature anyway, so I was a 9. I was stuck in at hooker a few times. I think I must have pee'd off the guy in charge and he chose that as a punishment. :(
I have a cunning plan...why not just leave things as they are but tell the Brexiteers that we have left the EU? After all they believe every lie that they were told by Boris and Nigel.

11 was the preferred position. As a right footer found it more comfortable than 14 from a kicking perspective. Terrible boot on me tbh. Good pace, reasonable defence but zero footballing skills :lol:

Also played a fair bit at 13, occassionally at 12, once for the school at 15, once at 7 and played scrum half in a 7s tournament. All very much "back in the day".

Played most of my one season out on the wing, though in a very desperate game I had to be called into the back row.....

Also had a go at inside centre after being begged to return and ended up against the biggest heffer I've ever played against - needless to say that put an end to any hopes of a comeback lol!

Started at 3; then lost a load of weight and moved to 6; then went to uni and was dwarfed by guys who'd been drinking nothing but protein shakes for six years and moved to 15. Had the pace of a Nissan Micra and the turning circle of a cargo ship, mind, and gave up shortly after!

Being versatile, I played 4 or 5, but preferred 4. REALLY social rugby only and a long time ago now.

Played a season at 14 at school - never had the speed, but the size of me compared to most 13 year olds playing wing in those days would have put you in mind of Jonah Lomu. The dodgy kidneys helped the overall illusion.
