In his return from injury, the fullback was strong and creative.

Brown: Embarrassment, poor decisions and review
2- Connor Watson
There’s no denying the team was energetic while Watson was on the field.
Watson played 44 minutes from the bench.
He made a line break, three tackle breaks and came within a whisker of scoring a try.
