The battle for Craig Bellamy is far from over.
Negotiations are about to be ramped up, with St George Illawarra Dragons and North Queensland Cowboys locked in a tug of war for the premiership-winning coach as the battle extends across three states.
The Sunday Telegraph can reveal both the Dragons and Cowboys have joined the Melbourne Storm in making Bellamy their No. 1 target for 2014.
Bellamy is contracted to the Storm until the end of 2013 and is eager to make a call on his next coaching job before the start of the new season.
