Kallum Watkins smashes Tim Simona

Exciting Wests Tigers three-quarter Tim Simona made a fine fist of the unfamiliar fullback role in Samoa’s brave performance against England – but he had to bounce back from a punishing early hit from centre Kallum Watkins.

The imposing Leeds Rhinos star smashed Simona as the makeshift No.1 made a fourth-minute kick return.

Simona’s teammates repaid the favour to the Poms in a highly physical encounter, but Watkins certainly proved himself as a defender to avoid for prospective Kangaroo and Kiwi ball-runners.
