KNIGHTS coach Nathan Brown expects the next two months to be busy despite already declaring 2017 a success on the recruitment front.
The Knights have secured Kalyn Ponga, Tautau Moga, Herman Ese'ese, Connor Watson and Aidan Guerra for next season and are awaiting an answer from Adam Blair.
The Broncos hard man has been offered a lucrative three-year deal but is also being pursued by the Dragons and Warriors.
“We thought he was going to make a decision over the weekend but it hasn’t happened yet,” Brown said. “It is not like it is a rush for us. If it is going to happen, it will happen.”
Leading player manager Gavin Orr was in town on Tuesday and met with Knights head of football Darren Mooney.
Orr looks after a string of Knights including off-contract duo Lachlan Fitzgibbon and Jaelen Feeney.
“All the guys and managers know where they are at,” Brown said. “If they are not signed at the moment, that doesn’t mean some of them won’t get signed.”
Brown confirmed that Cronulla utility Gerard Beale was among a host of players the Knights are interested in.
“He certainly ticks a lot of boxes,” Brown said. “He is playing in a team in the top four and one of the favourites to win the grand final. He would certainly add to our squad. We are in a position of strength to get into the market if something comes up good for us. The next month or two will be a busy time for us on that front.”
