Scotland captain Chris Paterson is hoping to hold on to his number 10 shirt for this weekend's game against France on Sunday but the Edinburgh player admits a move to the wing could help him recapture his form.
Paterson, who has won most of his 43 caps as a winger, has come in for some criticism at stand-off during Scotland's RBS 6 Nations Championship campaign in which the Scots have lost their first three games.
Coach Matt Williams has hinted that he is considering moving Paterson to the wing for the game against the French in order to take some pressure off his skipper.
After such a long wait to get into his favourite position Paterson is reluctant to give up the berth but admits he is willing to try anything to recapture his form.
He said: "You do as you're instructed and I'd be delighted to play anywhere, I make no bones about that, but deep down I would prefer to play at 10.
"I don't know the team yet so it's all hypothetical but moving me to wing could be beneficial.
"I've been heavily policed in the first three games and I feel quite flattered by that.
"But it's about Scotland performing and if I can help the team in whatever position I'm in, I'll be delighted to do that.
"And this weekend especially, it's not about an individual, it's about Scotland beating France and it's a collective effort that's needed.
"So whatever is asked of me I'll support to the best of my ability."
Paterson admits he has made mistakes at fly-half in this season's RBS 6 Nations tournament but denies he has been adversely affected by the responsibility and pressure of his role as captain.
He said: "I know I've made mistakes and if I continue to play there I'll make a lot more mistakes but becoming a better player is about getting over mistakes and learning from them.
"We took positive steps against England then big steps backwards so the biggest pressure on me and everyone else is that as a team we're not quite clicking."
