If the Knights were somehow struggling to pay local favourite Nathan Ross his worth, the good news is that a lot more money just became available. The bad news is that it became available because they’ve lost their best player of the past six years.
The Knights have this afternoon announced that centre Dane Gagai will depart the club at the end of this season. It’s expected that he’ll link with the Rabbitohs in 2018, after reports emerged last week that he’d agreed to terms.
Gagai has made 123 first grade appearances for the Knights and Broncos, and played 4 Origins for Queensland.
He is #8 on The Obstruction Rule’s Free Agent Top 100.
