Suspended Canberra fullback Jack Wighton looks set to have a new role in 2019, with The Daily Telegraph suggesting the 25-year-old will line up alongside Aiden Sezer in the halves this season.
Wighton is set to make the five-eighth position his own after spending most of the pre-season training alongside Sezer, and looks likely to be named at No. 6 for their opening clash against the Gold Coast Titans on Sunday, March 17.
With Wighton to move out of fullback, it looks as though Nick Cotric will be the favourite to fill the vacant No. 1 jersey, having spent some time in that position in 2018.
Wighton was handed a six-month NRL ban and a suspended two-month jail sentence from the ACT Magistrates Court in November for six charges surrounding an incident at a Canberra nightclub back in February 2018.
The 130-game veteran pleaded guilty to assaulting three men on the night and was handed a ban from the league, but will be allowed to play at the start of 2019 after serving his time.
