The Bulldogs are reportedly considering moving superstar Matt Burton from five-eighth to the centres. This potential switch is being considered by the club’s coaching staff, but it will depend on finding a suitable replacement for Burton in the five-eighth position. Burton has played 47 games for the Bulldogs and has always been positioned in the No.6 and No.7 jerseys. However, he did play 20 of his 32 games at centre for the Panthers and found success in this position, scoring in the 2021 grand final win over the Rabbitohs. Many believe that Burton’s running ability is the best part of his game, which has been suppressed while playing in the halves. Therefore, a move to the centres could allow him to showcase this skill once again. The potential switch will ultimately depend on the Bulldogs finding a suitable replacement for Burton in the five-eighth position.
