yer, he was being touted as the world's best fullback in about 06, then he decided that he didn't really enjoy it and would be much better at 10, and I think he may be right! His defence is absolutely incredible, whether he's at 10 or the last man it must be good playing with someone you know is that solid in the tackle

He has played both 10 & 15 for Racing this season, and not exactly shone in either position. Certainly doesn't compare to Wisniewski at 10. Maybe cos the poor man is always just getting going again after an injury, but he has been a disappointment, with only rare flashes of El Mago.

he is pure qualirty and delivers some magic in the field..as number 10 he got all you want, great heands, feet and depth.
He got the stuff for Super Rugby. Sure hit

Don't get me wrong, he's perfectly good to play at 10, but he just doesn't stand out there, as his tactical play is limited there. He is truly world class at 15, as opposed to very talented but slightly out of touch at 10.

I've only ever seen him at 10 and he's always impressed... looking forward to seeing more of this class player!

if he was fit for the RWC he would have probably been argentinas first choice 10, moving felipe out to 12. but he is an incredibly talented fullback, so they could easily slot him in there. would love to see "el mago" back in super rugby (but definitely not at the sharks)

He's a fullback through and through, so no idea why they would consider him at 10.
