RtD impacted games more with the bat and was certainly more valuable to his side than Watson was to Australia
Aus already has half the players in the side (inc 12th man), no need to get greedy and want Watson in there as well :tongue:

Was better with the ball than RTD, IMO. And if you're looking for a sixth bowler/lower order batsman, he'd fit the bill better.
