I think what he said was more in context of "any team who signs him long-term for over a million per season", will struggle to win the comp. Which is just smart buisness to try to set the market a bit lower at the start. I'm no great fan of Gus, but putting your best offer on the table at the start just gets you either bidding against yourself or missing out...
He also said he wouldn't have an issue with a cellar dweller signing him for big money. We're cellar dwellers.

I actually think this could be a decent signing . I like the thought process about getting players from winning systems who will drive standards at training. Thought Gus provided a good rationale last night on 100% footy

Sounds like it's going to happen , I wonder if it effects the potential Jaemon Salmon signing

Hopefully they also have a footy brain during games and don’t do stupid shit

He came from the knights and signed for the roosters, who, despite having a stacked team have only won a couple of games more than us.. I don't get why Watson coming from a winning system is talked up along the same lines as our other signings.

Hopefully tigers sign him where already going to have a team full of utilities that can’t nail down a position or first grade spot at other clubs

Don't really care if we miss out on Watson. Happy to have him, but won't bat an eyelid if not.

Any updates on Watson. As per Gus he passed his physical. I like this signing if true.

Maybe once they got further medical information they decided to withdraw the offer? Either that or the Roosters were giving more years/money and decided it wasn't worth it.

He's a talented player and perfect bench utility but he's often injured, so it's no big loss. I hope he can finally stay healthy though as he's a good player to watch when fit..
