Bulldogs respond to SBW bombshell


//

BULLDOGS SBW REUNION?

The NRL silly season is just the gift that keeps on giving – and it doesn’t get much juicier than this.

Reports of a secret meeting between SBW’s agent Khoder Nasser and the Canterbury Bulldogs regarding opportunities to bring the All Blacks star back to Belmore have been doing the rounds.

Word is Nasser met with a Bulldogs board member about Williams coming full circle and re-joining the club where it all started.

However, the Bulldogs have staunchly denied any link with Williams, the former club junior who famously left the club in 2008.

“Categorically no,” Canterbury Bulldogs CEO Andrew Hill told News Corp.

Nasser was reportedly out of town this week and unavailable for comment.

The thought of SBW coming back to the ‘Dogs makes a great story but it’s doubtful his name has come up in recruitment meetings.

Plus plenty at the club have long memories, and welcoming back a player who left them mid-season to chase a huge contract with French rugby side Toulon, might not sit well with a few.

 

WARRIORS AND GAVET PART WAYS

Prop James Gavet has asked for a release from the remaining year on his contract with the Warriors, with a reported move to Newcastle on the cards.

The NRL journeyman posted a photo to social media with him outside Mt Smart Stadium, under the heading: "Outta-Here.”

“Thanks for the ride fam. Done & Done".

NRL.com reports the Knights could be a potential home for the 29-year-old, with the club still having numbers to fill on their 30-man squad and reportedly around $2 million left on the cap.

Despite losing Gavet, the NZ based club has added some new faces to their squad as Stephen Kearney looks to makes changes at the club with reports of Shaun Johnson being on the outer.

Officials have thrown a lifeline to former Dragons and Wests Tigers centre Taane Milne after he was sacked mid-season for breaching the NRL’s illicit drugs policy.

Milne was banned for 12-weeks and then shown the door by Wests and then plied his trade in the NSW Cup for the rest of the year.

Former Penrith halfback Adam Keighran, prop Jackson Frei have both signed development deals with the club along with Paul Turner, Eliesa Katoa, Selestino Ravutaumada and Neyla Masima.

 

SIO HEADS BACK TO ENGLANg

Newcastle winger Ken Sio has signed with English Super League club Salford.

Sio, who played for Hull from 2015-16, has joined the Red Devils on a three-year deal.

“This signing is an outstanding capture for the club as Ken is a player who can play fullback, winger and centre and comes with great experience," Salford coach Ian Watson said.

“Ken is a fantastic person with an excellent work ethic which is essential in our environment here at Salford Red Devils.

Elsewhere at Newcastle, the club has extended youngster Beau Fermor's contract,with the Jersey Flegg Play of the Year agreeing to a new two-year-deal.

Fermor finished the Under-20's competition as the leading try scorer, after joining the club from the Storm in 2018.

"I'm stoked," Fermor told the Knights' website.

"I've loved every minute since moving here and thrilled to be staying for another two years.

"My goals for next season are to get in with the NRL boys and learn and hopefully push for my NRL debut."
