"When it goes against you, it all seems to go against you"

Inconsistent.

That’s how Connor Watson has described his start to the year.

“I think I’ve done some really good stuff and then I’ve had some glimpses of really bad stuff too,” Watson explained.

His goal, to eliminate errors, which are putting a cloud over his game.

That in itself will improve his game substantially.

“It’s marking my performance at the moment with one or two dropped balls or a forced pass,” Watson said.

“It’s disappointing because there is so much good stuff.

“At those key moments I didn’t come up with those plays and that’s what I need to do.

“When it goes against you, it all seems to go against you, but it doesn’t take much to turn it.”

Watson admits he’s happy to be back in the no. 6 jersey.

He enjoys it there.

But admits more time in the halves will serve him well.

“I just haven’t done any six stuff because I was injured last couple of weeks, so I hadn’t really trained,” he said.

“Defensively it’s a big load, I think I made 28 tackles on the weekend, so I was stuffed after that.

“But felt really good on the weekend playing back at six.

“It felt like our attack really flowed and allowed me and Kalyn to roam and attack.”

“The one thing we haven’t really done this year is build pressure and force repeat sets and that’s my role as a half to do that.”
