The Knights’ recruitment drive remains in full swing, with Storm hooker Slade Griffin and Warriors prop Jacob Lillyman the next two expected to head to the Hunter.
Writing on his Market Watch blog, Fox Sports reporter Nathan Ryan has revealed that Griffin has already told his teammates he’s heading to Newcastle, while adding that he believes Lillyman is “all but done too”.
The Knights pursued a number of hookers before settling on Griffin, and an announcement is expected in the near future.
Lillyman, meanwhile, has been linked to the Knights for some time, in the event that they were to miss out on Broncos prop Adam Blair. With Blair expected to head to New Zealand, adding Lillyman makes sense (and if they can nab Blair too, even better).
