My thinking would be a nine would do more running in a game than a full back or wing. You need to get to every ruck

Is your team missing a 9?

think its a bit mad/wishful thinking given age - I played quite a few positions, and scrum half really is a young persons position , you need to keep up with play constantly - you rarely get a break, like you would at full back or wing - think centre might be a better choice or perhaps maybe do full back only , i can understand that wing also gets tougher as you get older and lose pace.

Can you pass well off both hands? Thats the most important thing

Certainly not mad. I think if you feel inside that you are a scrumhalf, and are comfortable self-identifying as one, then no one should tell you you cant make the move. Bigots and old fashioned die hards may try to tell you that unless you have always been one then you can just decide to become one. Feck them though. Its 2019. You go for it scrummie.

Changing to scrum half in 30s is a no go. No management is gonna change up an established scrum half for a former winger who is deciding he's gassed on his pace. You will need pace getting into position each offensive play.

Running isn't an issue at all, I'm plenty fit. Its just my once blistering pace *pats on back:P is diminishing. I would imagine being at 9 doesn't require as much speed per se, but a lot more running

I much prefer 9 because there is a lot more to do so I can stay in the game a lot more mentally.
Have you a bit of size on you? Huge advantage at any level for a 9 but I've seen a lot of decent sized 9's prosper at junior rugby when they've a bit of ballast on them
