Can't remember who it was but one of the guys on Fox last night compared him to a young Craig Wing. I thought that was a pretty good comparison.

I reckon he could be better, Watson just so bloody quick on his feet and his acceleration is second to none

Watson is a superstar. Watson/Cleary will be the future origin halves pairing for NSW.

They never actually played together did they? I don't recall it

Pretty sure Porter was dropped for Smith. I remember being filthy because in my mind Porter had been outplaying Barrett.

7. Smith
6. Barrett

Good call on Moses, but Watson has more talent in his left foot than Brooks ever will

yeh Watson is very talented, but moses takes the 6

what is cleary's eligibility?

Born in the northern beaches he's a nsw boy and played Jnr footy in the Penrith comp when he came back from NZ, he's a NSW boy.

A major positive from last night's game is that St George will well and truly regret the signing of Ben Hunt on big money for six years.

Matty Johns made interesting comments of how Bennett has lost his aura, and the mess he left behind at the Dragons and Knights is a clear example.

Des left Manly in a mess, Ricky left us and Parra in a mess. Wayne isn't Han Solo in that department.

Johns was referring to coaches and their legacy. Hasler left a team premiers, bennet went to st george won a premiership then left them in a hole, went to newy and bailed mid contract with salary cap in terrible shape (like ricky).

True. I don't like the bloke but as I said, he's not alone, the media certainly have it in for him atm for some reason.
