Have the Knights narrowed their hooking targets down to two?
After being linked to rival hookers Mitch Rein, Michael Lichaa and Slade Griffin in recent weeks, 7Sport is reporting that the Knights are now in “serious talks” with Lichaa and Griffin.
It was reported Tuesday that the club were meeting with Griffin, and it’s now reported that they’ve already met with Lichaa as well.
Their pursuit of Rein was reportedly tied to an assumption that the Panthers would eat a chunk of his contract, so if negotiations with him have stalled, it’s likely that the Panthers have balked at the release conditions.
We don’t expect that the Knights would sign more than one hooker, as they already have Danny Levi under contract.
