The New Zealand Warriors have their sights set on Bulldog Adam Elliott, reports The Daily Telegraph. 

The Bulldogs lost Corey Harawira-Neara to the Canberra Raiders last week and now face a battle to keep hold of Elliott after the Warriors made it clear that the 25-year old is on their radar after meeting with his management. 

Channel 9’s Wide World of Sports reported yesterday that St George Illawarra are also keen on the versatile forward.

The Warriors also have interest in Dragons prop Jack de Belin, who they could offer an $800,000-a-year deal, however, it would mean missing out on Elliott. 

Despite the interest from the Warriors, new Bulldogs coach Trent Barrett is believed to be a big admirer of Elliott’s style. 

Elliott is off contract at the end of this season with the Bulldogs.

Amid interest from rival clubs, he would like to remain at Belmore despite currently being sidelined a shoulder injury.

  1. As a Warriors fan please do not sign this dud. He’s only good for drama off the field and Can’t bend a defensive line. We have already signed Ben Murdoch-Masila and Toby Rudolf for next season. How about the club lays off looking for forwards and looks to sign a gun half or hooker. He need another leader in the middle of the game to direct the forwards and with great link play to our backs

  2. Would be a great signing for Warriors, big work ethic handy in attack and good club man. I agree they need another play maker , hooker I’d be playing Egan their still and Nikorima off the bench with Harris Tevita as first choice with possibly a Tyrone May from Panthers or Lachlan Lamb from Roosters- whos going great their this season.
