If at first you don’t succeed…
Having missed out on signing utility Jack Bird this week, in addition to the failed recruitment of forwards Matt Scott and Matt Prior, the Knights will now turn their attention (and their cheque book) to Warriors five-eighth Kieran Foran, according to SMH.
The Knights have already added Cowboys fullback Kalyn Ponga for 2018, but are keen to find a new five-eighth to pair with halfback Trent Hodkinson, in news that’s no doubt disappointing to the fan(s) of Brock Lamb. Foran and Hodkinson played together at Manly in 2010, guiding the Sea Eagles to a Qualifying Final.
The Knights also reportedly have expressed interest in adding Warriors prop Ben Matulino. The Knights currently have the worst forward pack in the league, and Matulino would go a long way to improving that situation.
