And no, it isn't.
He was brilliant defensively against Wigan on the whole. He shut down every attack play that went wide apart from the one where he was stepped back on but hey, Josh Morris is equally as "poor" in defence. The only games I have seen Watkins have poor defensive performances in over the last couple of years are the ones where he played out of position at full back. At centre I have no worries about him.
Please say you are joking about Josh Morris being poor in defence.
