Inside centre
Around the Academy:

Whether in defence or attack, the inside centre is always in the thick of the action.

They offer options for the fly-half in attack, making the breaks and drawing the opposition's defence to make the space for their partner, the outside centre.

And the inside centres are also the players dishing out the tackles in defence along with the forwards.

Accurate handling and passing skills are a must for any centre, along with a good kicking game.

Expect plenty of running as a centre.
