‘You could build a club around him’

Rugby League Week - - News - TONY ADAMS

GI­ANT ROOSTER KANE EVANS is lick­ing his lips at the prospect of run­ning off Con­nor Wat­son’s sweetly timed passes for years to come at the Roost­ers.

“Con­nor is some­thing spe­cial. He could’ve gone to Rio with the Aussie sev­ens rugby team — I have no doubt he would’ve made it,” says Evans.

“It’s great for us that he de­cided to stay in league be­cause he is a nat­u­ral. He just reads the play so well and can put us big blokes through holes.

“He’s also amaz­ing in the gym. Even though he’s only a lit­tle bloke, he’s one of the strong­est in the club.

“He’s the type of player you build a club around and he’ll re­ally grow an ex­tra leg hav­ing dom­i­nated the Nines.”
