England rugby star Anthony Watson has defeated Watford FC winger Gerard Deulofeu in the third quarter-final of the NBA2K19 Gaming Tournament.

The Bath wing will now face either Arsenal defender Shkodran Mustafi or West Ham’s Manuel Lanzini in the semi-final.

Watson opted to play as the Houston Rockets, led by 2017-18 MVP James Harden, whilst Deulofeu selected the Toronto Raptors, hoping to take advantage of their dynamic star Kawhi Leonard.
