It's funny how we all see the game differently, I thought he was very good in his first spell, I'd have liked him in our starting line up that's for sure. He made 2 great cover tackles when we broke in the first half, I'm sure he was the man that tackled Campbell from the interception that Johnson eventually scored from. He made good yards, pulled at least 3 defenders out of position to bring him down when he drove it in and managed to offload more often than not, meaning the defence had to make an extra tackle. One of his numerous offloads in the game also set up the "offside try" scored by Haughey.
 
Admittedly though, he wasn't as effective in his second spell, having said that though, he played for the Rhino's on Monday and he is in the Rhino's 19 for today's game v Wigan, so maybe he eased off in preparation or was feeling tired from playing on Monday.
 
Some of the Hawks fans are bleating about Watson being poor at fullback, he made a couple of mistakes, but I thought he was one of there best players on the night.

Don't get me wrong, I think he is a decent player but, from bits I had read about him, I was expecting to see a performance similar to one of the Aussie greats from years back. He is a good player at this level but was far from the world beater I was expecting, especially in the second half when I thought he was comparatively insignificant. Compare to Alex?

Murphy was a one-off - there's no comparison.

No BSJ he's talking about Alex MUFF. ( in joke amongst the Batley faithful)
