Though I love flair & skills often shown by Lyon, DCE & the flying Snake, Choc Watmough represents the good old school toughness that makes the game of rugby league so great. Players like Ronny Gibbs & BK who always stepped up in the big games, thriving on the tough conditions. Ppl talk about the hard men of the game back in the day, but I would back Watmough to handle himself against them all. Over the past 5 years Snake Stewart has proven an absolute matchwinner & vital cog in the Manly machine. Well Choc has stepped up & is as vital for mine,with his toughness & enthusiasm never more evident than Friday night. To watch Choc rise from an athletic, energetic young backrower to the most dominant 2nd row leader is down to the heart of a champion. While he can still hop on 1 leg, you can bet he will be right amongst it against that monster Souths pack & while he is on the field, Manly are always in the game.
