Jobe Watson is the man that is famous for being the face of the Essendon drug saga. Although he was a very capable footballer and good guy, he made a mistake that was set to stain his sporting career and his life.
However, after being banned from playing footy, he decided to turn to cricket. Being one of the founding members of Little Zorro CC, he struggled to keep his place in any team with his slightly above average skills. Finally, he had some luck with his 4th team, the Glen Iris Greats.
With the Greats, he managed to play 123 games across 4 years and put up solid numbers with the bat. In his first season, he excelled in one dayers, averaging 57.15, which included a huge knock of 169*. Season 34 was arguable his best season with the club, as he averaged 60.11 in first class matches.
Now with the crosstown rival/brother club's 2nd team, the Michaelson Magic, Watto looks to be in a leadership role as an older member of the team and has gotten off to a great start with an average of 61 over his first 4 matches.
