Hello, i've been playing Rugby on and off for most of my life but have started taking it seriously for the last two years. I generally play in the centres or at full back but having played a game or two at openside flanker (because of injuries etc') I've decided that's where I want to be. My question is; how can I force my way into the number seven shirt from the start? I'm 17 (and playing for college with people my own age and for my local senior side). I'm 6'1, about 177lbs and i'm extremely quick. I break tackles quite well and my tackling has improved loads over the past couple of years. As well as this i'm super fit as i've been competing in all manner of sports regularly for most of my life. As for rucking, i'm decent but without game time at seven I don't know how I can improve enough to warrant starting at loose forward. So what advice would you offer?
