Cordingley says Giteau needs game time at No.9

The debate over where Matt Giteau’s playing career continues as his opposite number Sam Cordingley says that Giteau needs more game time playing at No.9 if he wants to be a World Class No.9.

Cordingley says that Giteau has the talent to succeed in the position after a successful four-game stint there for the Wallabies but he says that he needs more time in the position.

“Obviously he’s a prodigious talent. I don’t think it would matter where you put him in the backline, he’d be a success,” said Cordingley. “But one of the big things with halfback is you need consistency at that level.

“You see No.9s develop throughout their career as a consequence of playing games and I think he’ll definitely need to be playing there in the Super 14 pretty consistently if he wants to be a world class halfback for the World Cup,” he said.
