Michael Gordon insists he is a 'team first' player and will cop whatever decision Garth Brennan makes in relation to the fullback position at the start of season 2019.
The 35-year-old finished season 2018 with his wrist in a cast after a freak training incident saw his season finish in Round 21, with boom rookie, AJ Brimson, shifting to fullback and proving himself as a superstar in that position.
Coach Garth Brennan now has options in all positions and with Ryley Jacks and Tyrone Roberts looking to be battling I tout to partner Ash Taylor in the halves, Brennan may have to look for a spot in the line-up for Brimson, and that could be at the back.
Gordon has been running at fullback through the early part of pre-season with Brimson sidelined after shoulder surgery but regardless who gets the spot, Gordon will continue to be a team player.
"I'm a team first and foremost sort of person and whatever is required I will do," Gordon said.
The Tweed Coast junior is currently in his 15th NRL pre-season but feels as good as ever.
"The body is feeling good. There are new players and there's a real good buzz around at the moment."
Brennan has the majority of the squad at his disposal for skills sessions and Gordon can see a big difference from where the squad was at last year.
"It's a massive difference when you've got the majority of guys training all the time.
"This year we were good enough but not close enough in a lot of games and that's probably what we need to fix, is that consistency.
"Because when we were good, we were really good and when we were bad, we wouldn't have beaten a Queensland Cup team.
"So it's about bridging that gap, which we are certainly working towards."
