Biography:

A product of the Central Coast, Watson made his NRL debut in 2016 playing for the Sydney Roosters.

He joined the Knights in 2018 on a three-year contract, but injuries limited his year to 15 appearances.

He enjoyed a mostly injury-free season last year, covering up and down the team’s spine, as well as making a name for himself at hooker.

Watson’s versatility makes him a huge threat across the paddock. His ability to shine anywhere in the side makes him a unique asset for the team.

As an athletic and an enthusiastic member of the squad, the former junior Kangaroo was selected for the 2018 Emerging Blues Squad.

As a junior, Watson declared he wanted to play for the Knights on the NRL Footy Show.
