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.
