Updated: October 11, 2017

After completing his second full year of playing first grade at the Sydney Roosters, Central Coast local Connor Watson returns home in 2018 as he seeks a starting spot with his new club.

Watson has had a sensational start to his career at the Roosters, winning the S.G. Ball competition in his early years and progressing his football all the way to first grade by 2016. 

Though he started the 2016 season as a utility, Watson found himself as the first choice five-eighth for the Club by Round 19 of the competition. 

In a short time playing at the top grade, Watson has already accomplished a lot and has much more to achieve in what’s sure to be an eventful career.
