New Zealand Warriors general manager Dean Bell would not be drawn on speculation the club is interested in recruiting George Carmont.
UPDATED: Injuries and Suspensions
Rumours have surfaced that Carmont could be in the frame for an NRL swansong next season after ending his hugely-successful five-year stay with the Wigan Warriors.
And Bell’s silence will only fan the flames that the 34-year-old could be on their radar.
The Evening Post understands Carmont will hold talks with Bell later this month after flying back to Auckland.
And a role working as an off-field mentor for young players, while also providing cover for the three-quarters, may appeal to the dad-of-five.
