Kevin Morgan believes his newfound versatility may give him a better chance of breaking into the Wales side during the RBS 6 Nations.
Although Morgan has won all 27 of his caps as a full-back he has recently been forced to switch to the wing at club side the Dragons after losing out to Percy Montgomery in the battle for the number 15 jersey.
But Morgan believes the conversion could be a blessing in disguise and he is eager to show coach Mike Ruddock he has more than one string to his bow.
"I've always said that I see myself primarily as a full-back and if I had a choice that is definitely the where I prefer to play. But so far it has worked out quite well," Morgan told the Welsh Rugby Union's official website, www.wru.co.uk.
"I've just had to get on with it and perhaps the move has even helped me in getting selected for the Six Nations squad. It shows that I am a bit more versatile and that I can play in different positions. That versatility is useful for any coach to have.
"Mike hasn't said anything to me about playing on the wing instead of full-back but he has never wanted to get too involved in regional matters. But the move has added another string to my bow."
