this may sound like a bonkers idea but i reckon nigel davies should try out arran shingler on the wing. i don't think he is big enough to make an impact in the pack but he could be great on the wing. he's big, has got great ball skills, and is bloody fast for a big guy. its all about spotting where players could play well and giving them a shot there. who would have thought before wales tour to sa a few years back that jamie roberts would become the worlds best inside centre. shingler and north on the wing for the scarlets would scare the living daylights out of the opposition.

Sounds to me as if your always doing your thinking 'out of the box' and really need to get laid mun!
 
Day and Reed on the wing tho, at least they wouldnt have to scrummage. Lee Bach for lock, nice and light to lift, you could have a point mun!

Would not be my choice but would Aaron have any less of a rugby brain playing there than Matt Banahan. His 7's experience would be useful, but if he has not been tried there by now I feel its abit late.

you need to read up on your history jeremy windell, women used to fall at my feet in russia, even the tsarina wanted me. your just being stupid for the sake of it in saying day and reed on the wing, they haven't got the pace, shingler has. i cant see what's so nuts about it wrigley, a big man with lots of pace and loads of skill who is a bit to light for the pack. he's also played lots of sevens and looks good in the open spaces, what's so nuts about it??????

Let's compromise and play him at wing forward, (openside) to make use of his speed and long reach to win penalties against those not releasing. I suggested this ages ago and was ignored. At least you're being ridiculed.

I agree, wing forward, as for Mad Monk's idea, it's a bit of a brain storming thought and usually the maddest idea is usually the best one. Arron on the wing, not as daft as it sounds.

What do we know about his kicking game Mad Monk? The back three need to have good kicking skills, both in attack and defence. Somebody probably knows something about his kicking skills, hence he is not on the wing.....maybe?

I can understand the logic personally however I would be more inclined to play Pugh on the wing (as I believe the Ospreys did). This gives the advantage of having a specialist scavenging forward amongst the outside backs - meaning you should not lose posession as frequently out wide. He is quicker than Shingler and could do a job.

I've said for a while that Aaron should look to develop into a Tom Croft-style no. 6 - quick and useful in the lineout. No problem with the idea of trying him as a 7, though - especially now. (this shows again that what we really lack is a couple of strong, bulky second rows).

As has been said - Shingler would be no worse in the backs than Banahan, but we have a lot of talent in the centre and on the wings already, so I don't see that being tried unless we have a disastrous run of injuries!

Its a worry for Shingler that he hasn't yet tied down a regular position. There is a strong possibility that he will only ever be a utility forward like Jonathon Thomas unless he can either
 
a. put on more weight and be an athletic lock or
b. find his best position in the back row and develop into a top class player in that position.
 
I think he is a fantastic player but I always think that players suffer if they show ability to play in too many positions - just like backs. He and the region need to make a definite decision on his future and work flat out to develop him in that position. I think they want this to be lock, but I can't see him ever being heavy enough personally.

I'll say this, his burst of acceleration, draw and then give vs Leinster is on probably on par with anything our backs have offered this season.

Starting Shingler with 11 or 14 on his back is ridiculous, but his strength is running with ball in hand in wide open spaces, so while he's on the pitch (at 6 I would suggest), the Scarlets game plan should be to try him in wide channels when there's a forward marking him in defence, to try and exploit a slower defender marking him (to try and repeat his try in the cup final a few years ago).

Boomer was an outstanding player who waited too long to get capped on that ill-fated tour to NZ in the late 80s. He won his first cap the same day as Nigel Davies.
I can't ever remember him playing on the wing though.

Gary Jones was never an option on the wing. Boys you have short memories, or are you all very
young ( on the other hand, I may be getting on a bit!).
Doesn't anyone remember Roy Mathias?  He was a very, very good wing forward for Llanelli before he was switched to the wing.  He was capped against France in 1970 before joining St Helen's. He played for both Wales and Great Britain Rugby League sides.  He was a cracking player who used to thrill the enclosure boys under the South stand at Stradey with barnstorming, try scoring runs. He was very strong and abrasive and he could really shift too.
Boys, don't [beep] Rasputin for thinking out of the box.  He's prompted one or two interesting posts.
However, I can't say that I agree with him about Shingler, even though he has all the raw materials.
Shingler could be a fantastic No 6., if we are patient enough to develop him.
