If you really want him to play as an all rounder. You have got to accept he will be injured at least 1 out 3 tests.
So you need a plan B, when he gets injured. If you want to play him as top order batsmen, then you need to have shadow top order batsmen i.e. Khawaja. If you want a him a 5th bowler that bats in the top 6, then you need to shadow him with a bowling all rounder i.e. Mitch Marsh, Moz or Maxwell.
If they are serious about the squad rotation, then you need a Plan B with Watson gets injured. Like they do for the front line quicks.
The man, the mountain, the Mathews. The greatest all rounder since Keith Miller. (Y)
