Jonathan Joseph has insisted he would be "comfortable" on the wing in the British and Irish Lions' Test series.
The England centre was close to forcing his way onto the bench for Saturday's 30-15 first Test defeat to New Zealand in Auckland.
The Bath flyer missed out with Leigh Halfpenny preferred, but now has another chance to impress in Tuesday's Hurricanes clash in Wellington.
Joseph will be among a clutch of stars bidding to play their way into the squad for Saturday's second Test, and he admitted he would happily cover wing to win the right to face the All Blacks.
I'd feel confident playing there, I've played there before.
Being a rugby player, you're used to slotting into different positions. And yeah, I feel confident there.
The type of player I am I feel it's not too tough for me to shift onto the wing, like Elliot Daly.
I feel like we're quite similar players.
So potentially I could slot onto the wing if needed.
But everyone of course wants to get into that Saturday team, and to do so in their preferred position.
[I've] not massively [trained for the position]. Maybe I'll slot myself in there tomorrow, just in case!
