If you’re wondering who the loser of this month’s ‘prop forward musical chairs’ is, it’s sounding as though it may be the Warriors (is there anything they can’t lose?).
That’s the view of Fox Sports reporter Nathan Ryan, who’s tweeted an update on the three-club pursuit of Broncos forward Adam Blair and Bulldogs prop James Graham.
“Hearing Adam Blair will join the Knights,” Ryan said. “Dragons now working on a deal with the Dogs to bring in James Graham next season.”
If that’s how it ultimately plays out, that would leave the Warriors empty-handed (once again).
In that case, the club may do an about-face, and offer long-term veteran Jacob Lillyman a new deal after all.
According to a report today from Fox Sports, “if he Warriors’ big-money bid to bring Adam Blair home falls short, it’s understood Lillyman may yet be offered another year“.
It’s been reported today that Lillyman has likely played his last game for the club, after suffering a suspected torn bicep on the weekend. However, if the Knights and Dragons get their respective men, that not be the case after all.
At this point, all we can do is wait and see who’s sitting where when the music finally stops.
