Cliff Watson Player Profile

A wild frontrower who enjoyed nothing more than punishing opposition players. Subtlety was not in Cliff's forte as he tore into the foe in both attack and defence.

Watson played 30 test for Great Britain and never took a backward step in any of them. Cliff Watson transfered to the Cronulla Sharks and linked up with his old St helens and Great Britain teammate Tommy Bishop. Watson stayed at the Sharks for three years.

His style of play would of made him a regular visitor to the Judiciary. Cliff introduced the "Liverpool Kiss" to Australia and Jimmy Morgans head in a test match in Brisbane.
