The Warriors are making no secret of their desire to bolster their struggling forward pack, but it sounds like they’re going to miss out on the target they covet most.
According to the New Zealand Herald, Broncos forward Adam Blair has hosed down speculation that he could accept a big-money offer to return across the Tasman, and suggested that he’s most likely to remain in Brisbane.
“I’m really happy with where I am,” Blair said. “My family is happy, I’m enjoying my football, and the most important thing for me now, looking at the back end of my career, is making sure that I’m somewhere that I’m going to be happy.”
“If that means that I stay at the Broncos, then that’s most probably what I’m going to do.”
Reports first emerged a fortnight ago linking Blair to the Warriors.
Blair has played 254 first grade matches for the Broncos, Tigers and Storm, and 39 Tests for New Zealand.
He’s #27 on The Obstruction Rule’s Free Agent Top 100.
