Springbok centre Jaco Taute has indicated that he would like to play full-back for the Stormers in next year's Super Rugby tournament.

Taute, who will be on loan at the Stormers from the Lions, said although he has no qualms about playing centre, his primary aim was to be considered for the Stormers at full-back.

"I don't have a fixed position, but would really like to be considered at full-back," he told Die Burger newspaper.

"Obviously I'd also play centre if required. My strong point at full-back is my attacking game.

"I can also play a tactical game because I mainly played fly-half at school."

The 21-year-old said although he is set to return to the Lions after the Super Rugby competition he could extend his stay with the Cape Town outfit.

"My contract with the Lions expires next season," he explained.

"So I could stay on with the Stormers if I wanted to. But we'll see how things go in 2013."
