I think he'll start the season on the bench and come on into the backrow or move into the centres when Matai gets injured..
Chaminda do you rate Shane Rodney?
Yeah I think that what will happen with Williams start on the bench or centres. Though Robertson been talked as an option in centres and his so called ability to play wing, centres and fullback is why he is ahead of David Williams as players to re-sign. Though David has played a fair bit of fullback and centres in lower grades as well and has a lot more potential.
I actually rate Rodney if he can get back to his early career form at the Panthers. Will add a lot of depth to our backrow once he gets back near full fitness. Reckon he will be in and out of squad depending on injuries. But I was worried if Mauro or Waerea-Hargreaves had to play that role this season. We wont lose much when Rodney gets a few games, as we would with the others. Though I don't think he will never be a starting forward, will always be at his best off the bench.
