The curious case of Jacob Lillyman continues to unfold, with the Knights the latest club linked to the off-contract front-rower.
According to Newcastle Sunday, via Nothing But Knights, Lillyman’s management have approached the Knights about a possible deal, with the Knights having been open about their wish for a veteran front-rower.
The Lillyman situation has been intriguing, with him first having been offered a one-year deal, only for them to withdraw it; before reportedly changing their minds once again recently, and considering offering him a deal in the event that they miss out on securing Adam Blair.
Blair has also been linked to the Knights, making a potential Lillyman-Newcastle marriage a logical solution if Blair were to ultimately land in New Zealand.
Blair’s destination is expected to be decided in the near future, at which point the other front row dominoes can fall.
