Waratahs Shift Nawaqanitawase Back to Wing Position

Nawaqanitawase Reclaims Position as Winger for Waratahs

Mark Nawaqanitawase, the dynamic rugby player of Fijian descent, is set to return to his starting position on the wing for the New South Wales (NSW) Waratahs. He’s expected to play a crucial role in boosting the team’s performance in the upcoming Super Rugby AU, notwithstanding his previous rotation out of the starting line-up.

Nawaqanitawase’s Return to the Starting Line-up

Nawaqanitawase gradually built his reputation as an impactful wing during the 2020 season. However, he was shifted to full-back in the first four rounds of the recent 2021 season. Nonetheless, he is now preparing to get back to his preferred wing position for the NSW Waratahs’ next game against the Queensland Reds. This change in line-up is part of a wider team reshuffle by head coach Rob Penney.

The Coach’s Expectations

Rob Penney is enthusiastic about Nawaqanitawase’s return to his wing role. He believes the young Fijian’s skillset suits the position perfectly, thus allowing him to significantly contribute to the team’s gameplay. His increased comfort in the wing position could result in improved defensive structure for Waratahs and subsequently, better overall performance.

The Team’s Standings and Upcoming Games

The NSW Waratahs are currently at a crucial juncture as they are yet to secure a victory in this year’s Super Rugby AU. The forthcoming game against the Queensland Reds thus holds significant importance as a determining factor for Waratahs’ standing in the competition. With Nawaqanitawase’s return to the wing, expectations are mounting for better results from the team in the upcoming games.
