Wish we'd stop playing players who are injured. No chance of avoiding the mid 8s so may as well get them fit for it

I think Watkins best game was home game Vs Hull when he went onto wing

That's why I'd chuck him out there.

Plus he's gone back about 3 years in terms of defence

Agree, it just compounds things but hopefully we're learning (going from the comments about Delaney)

Not sure I agree with that, he's doing more defensive work than ever because our fringe defence is so poor

His entire game is all over the shop at the moment.

Teams are targeting him defensively IMO so he's less effective in attack

Whole of 2015 watkins made 403 tackles, missed 22

This season he's already made 379 and missed 25!

A lot more work in defence

Penalty machines

Ferres 14
JJB 13
Galloway 12


RE: Leeds 2016 - Cheese - 06-01-2016 04:47 PM

Exactly!

No wonder Watkins doesn't seem to have the energy when we get forward, he's fucked!


RE: Leeds 2016 - MOT - 06-01-2016 07:44 PM

I know he'd done more work but that's nuts!

About twice as much!


Leeds 2016 - jools - 06-01-2016 11:22 PM

Don't blame the fact he's having to actually tackle on why he's so shit- yes he's tackled a bit BUT Just 2 try assists 46 tackle busts 1354metres avg gain 6.84 metres 28 errors

Compare that to leroys stats who's played one less game this season- Leroy has made more tackles than Watkins at 396 tackles - so more defensive work, on top of that 11 try assists, 57 tackle busts, 1752 metres avg gain 8.19 half as many errors. His attacking stats are much better than Watkins even having done more in Defence.
So perhaps Watkins isn't as good as he was made out to be now he's having to make a few extra tackles!
