Connor Watson doesn't know exactly what he's in for in 2020.
But he's okay with that.
The Dubbo-born utility, the son of the well-known former Group 11 player Mark 'Wacky' Watson, originally linked with the Newcastle Knights in order to nail down a starting spot.
He'd been limited to cameos off the bench at the Sydney Roosters but two seasons into a three year deal with the Knights, Watson is no closer to being a regular starter with the Knights.
That's largely because he is too good at what he does best - covering a number of positions.
It's only now that he is getting more comfortable with the thought of being a star utility rather than a specialist, just as long as his game time is not compromised too much.
"For the first few years of my career, I really just wanted to be a five-eighth," Watson told the Newcastle Herald.
"I wanted that starting role. The frustration of only getting 20 minutes a game at the Roosters is why I left the club to come up to Newcastle.
"But as the game evolves and gets faster, I guess it's a blessing to be able to play in so many positions. With the speed of the game, the guys in the middle are having to get a bit smaller and more mobile because the bigger guys get tired easier.
"So for me, if I can play in a middle role, or at hooker or five-eighth or any position for that matter because I really believe I can cover every position, and do a good job for the team and we win, at the end of the day, that's the most important thing.
"I just want to play a big part in a winning football team and make a difference."
Watson added he's already discussed his role with new Knights coach Adam O'Brien.
