    Watson played in the middle last night and he defended extremly well.
    Also backed up well to score a great try.

    I reckon he might be the buy of the year when we look back on next year.

    Him playing in the middle was one of the reasons cowboys scored one of their tries. Taumolo ran at him, 4 roosters had to help, meaning they were all slow off the line next play allowing cowboys to score easily. This happened a few times in the middle of the field too.
    Not blaming him directly or whatever just saying he did ok for a small guy but you'd prefer someone else at lock

    Jack Cogger - 176cm - 82kg.

    Watson has looked like a First Grade standard player Cogger has not.

    If I was talking about Cogger as a lock forward the screams would be deafening.
    Guys that size haven't played lock since the 1980s.

    Not saying that he has work to do but Pearce has been a turnstile in defense for years and they still don't hide him well enough when he gets exposed in some situations, last night with the Cowboys first try it was really obvious. And teams still run at him because of it.

    How many runs does Taumalolo make where three or 4 dont have to come help bring him down.

    You want to stop big men then you need big men to do it.

    we won't be playing him in the middle I was just pointing out that he is a great defender for a half.

    I wouldn't have picked that Watson for me doesn't look as small

    Would be surprised if Watson isn't closer to 90 kg now. Doubt teams care enough to go and update these things once they crack FG.

    It doesn't seem right. He chose us over the Tigers for less money because he's always been a Knights supporter and really wants to play for us. Now he wants to go to a rival for more money??

    Why would the Knights make an announcement about signing Watson, if they haven't actually signed him?

    I don't think they go about announcing signings when all they have done is given his manager the contract.

    Something not right.
