After a big game from the young five eighth in Round 24, Connor Watson spoke to the media to discuss his rise to first grade, his recent form, his future at the Club and more.

When speaking of his rise through the ranks, Watson is still in awe of how 2016 has played out for him. 

"It's been unbelievable," he said to the media.

"I've dreamt of doing it (playing first grade) since I knew what football was.

"To be able to do that now is something that I can't really describe."

It's quite the adjustment going from Holden Cup to NRL, and Watson can definitely tell the difference.

"The step up from 20s is pretty big.

"It's a lot faster and a bit more physical.

"My body can definitely feel it the next day."
