    Graham was a million dollar man at the dogs don't think he would have came here for $600,000 a season

    For starters, James Graham didn't want to come here. He's also on $1million a season (Bulldogs paying this next year $400k of it, so technically 600k next year, 1 million the next two) so thats almost double Adam Blairs contract, James Graham has had serious injuries lately with Blair none of note. Oh, and he doesn't want to come to NZ so there's no point even discussing it.

    600k isn't too bad in today's market.

    4 years on the other hand... idiotic.

    it's being reported that the Dragons are only paying him $600k of the $1mill that he will be being paid. Thats gotta piss you off if you're a Doggies fan... paying someone you didn't want to go in the first place $400k to play for an opposition team!!

    600k is probably okay for a leader who can add value to our younger forwards like he's done at the Broncos, the 4 years, I'd be keen to know if that includes an option in the clubs favour and if it's front loaded or not.

    Blair for the first couple of years might be ok if we get the right players around him. He's poor at hitting the ball up so we are going to need a couple of big ball carriers to complement him.

    I like his 1%ers. It's the other 99% I'm worried about.

    I'm fine with paying him 600k but the 4 years is a joke. I guarantee by 2020 he'll be getting the Manu treatment.

    What it doesn't say is that Moylans become a mad keen surfer, for those of us out there that surf you can understand why you'd want to be closer to the ocean and not stuck there at the foot of the Blue Mountains.

    I can see this getting done and can see us picking up Blake Green because of it.

    mt.wellington DONT BELIEVE THE HYPE Contributor

    While its more than likely true and the worst kept secret in the NRL its not actually official and merely yet another article suggesting its a done deal. Even worse its an article quoting articles that claim he is signed...

    BLAIR DEAL DONE

    Adam Blair’s move to the Warriors has been signed and sealed according to multiple reports.

    Media outlets — Link has been hidden. Please Register to view. — have reported on Wednesday that Blair will join the New Zealand club on a four-year deal in 2018 worth about $2.4 million.

    Blair’s future has been a hot topic in rugby league circles in recent weeks and he was chased by a number of clubs before the Warriors won out.

    It means Blair could potentially play his last game in Brisbane colours on Friday night, if his Broncos lose the final to Penrith at Suncorp Stadium.

    The Courier Mail believes the signing will be announced once Brisbane’s season comes to an end.

    The Warriors beat the likes of St George Illawarra and Newcastle to the signature.
