    If we're after Watson does that mean we've given up on an experienced half?

    Rochow is hopeless, he's no upgrade on any forward we have imo .....

    Buzz Rothfield has said we're getting Watson !!! He's the most solid source going around so I'm feeling confident .....

    Ponga, Guerra*, Watson* our recruitment drive is starting to pick up steam ......

    Sarcasm is hard to detect sometimes but did you just call Buzz Rothfield the most solid source going around?

    The guy is a washed up alco on his last legs who makes up stories. In this case I hope he is on the money but I'd trust Lance Armstrong before I'd trust Phil Rothfield.

    Watson looks like a very good replacement for Kostjaysyn and Randell.
    They were saying he can play 1, 6, 7, 9 - which makes him a 14 I suppose (don't know how that Maths works)

    Watson is under contract till end of 2018. So we can't make any offer at the moment.

    Watson wants out of the Roosters because he wants a starting nrl spot at 6.

    Why would he sign with us to sit on the bench?
    Makes zero sense at all.

    If he signs his a good chance of being at 6 with Lamb at 7

    Watson would be a moral to play 6 if he signed with us. Quality player.

    If we sign him we'd have a bunch of young halves to choose from ....

    Feeney
    Lamb
    Cogger
    Watson
    Pearsell

    I like Watson but I think his best position is 9, reminds me of Craig Wing .....

    Watson would be a great signing. Ponga, Watson, Lamb, Levi would be some sort of a spine for the future, but still can't help but think that we really need some experience to lead them around.

    Watson's form at 6 at the end of last year was exceptional. I really like him there

    True, but I'm pretty sure the roosters said they aren't releasing him, and the interview I read from Watson he mentioned the tigers were the club that made the approach to the roosters to release him.

    I do hope we get him though. Watson 6, Lamb 7. Put Pythian in the 14 next year.
