I recall the massive turnaround at Manly when BK joined with attitude & imo, was a huge part of the winning culture that has followed ever since. No player benefited more than Watmough who now is THAT influential foward leader that every team wants , but very few have. There were parts of last Friday nights game when Watmough just kept popping up at vital moments to take a hitup or rip in with a big hit & his batteries just refused to run flat. I know theres been times when his hands let him down & the odd bad play the ball but imo, he does everything at 100 mph & at 100% commitment, more than making up for these errors during the game. Does not make the same amount of line breaks on the edges as he did, but plays more of a leadership quality in tight, sacrificing the headlines for his team winning the battle in the ruck. His leadership qualities are up with the best & his influence over the past 8 or so years have been massive, have always had Snake Stewart as the most influential player but this bloke is right there with him. Could there be a better influence for the youngsters coming through?? Hasson, Starling, Buhrer & co all feed off Watmoughs rugged determined style of no nonsence footy. Every time Watmough steps on the field you just know the Seaeagles will not go down without a fight, he leads from the front & commands the troops follow him often dominating due to his efforts. Is 1 of the best fowards of the past 20 years & is already a Manly legend.
