‘You could build a club around him’
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.”
