    Isn't he from Salford (or Manchester)?

    Good move for all parties really.

    Yes, I agree. It may be that he's finished physically, but Watson does seem to have a real knack for getting the best out of players whose careers have stalled. If he's going to get back on track anywhere, Salford is a decent bet.

    3 years seems a long contract for a player who looks on the wane, he was a top player but he looks well past his best now. what is he going to be like 3 years down the track?

    Good signing that for the Reds will still offer experience.

    A class centre on his day. If he can get back to match fitness a great signing for them.

    Didn't Watkins start playing LF just before he left Leeds? Though I think that was only because of injury's. I bet Costello will be happy, if he has signed and finds himself a back up player there.

    I think he is actually from Salford (Pendelbury). Sure I read that somewhere in the past 2-3 weeks, or maybe he mentioned it when he was a guest on Sky.
