Apparently unwanted at Canterbury, Bulldogs halfback Matt Frawley needed to find a new home.
That new home looks like being at Newcastle, with nrl.com reporting that Frawley is closing in on a deal to join the Knights.
At Newcastle, he’ll likely settle in as the back-up to star half Mitchell Pearce, unless he can secure a gig on the interchange bench.
Still, Frawley is just 23 years of age, and has a wealth of attacking talent. The opportunity to develop behind an experienced starter such as Pearce may be good for Frawley, while giving the Knights one of the best back-ups in the league.
Frawley has played 31 first grade games for the Bulldogs.
