Cape Town - Western Province coach John Dobson says he will shift captain Juan de Jongh from outside to inside centre during this year's Currie Cup.

"At times, I'll need Juan's leadership closer to the engine room. We also have two very good outside centres with the potential to one day play Test rugby - Huw Jones and Johnny Kotze," Dobson told Netwerk24.

The coach added that Jaco Taute will also be considered at inside centre.

"My choice at inside centre will depend in the specific challenge we're facing."

Taute can also be utilised at fullback and wing.

De Jongh though is no stranger to playing inside centre, having played inside of Jaque Fourie during the 2010 Super Rugby tournament when the Stormers reached the final, as well as with Sailosi Tagicakibau last year.
