“I wasn’t having a good game as it was and to move back out to centre where you get no ball … my attitude needed to change a little bit towards that.That's hardly sulking. It is recognising that his confidence was rocked and he knows he needed to pick up his bottom lip and get on with it. At this stage I wish Oates would do similar.
That's definitely him admitting that he was having a bit of a sulk. It's nice that he admitted it though, shows that he's self aware, unlike a lot of players. He just has to mentally prepare for the fact that centre might be his only good position at this stage of his career, much like Oates on the wing.
