“However, we do know that the Bulldogs are currently in the midst of a fire sale they were trying to off load a number of players.

“Their captain James Graham is the best paid player at the club, (and) will be their best paid player at the club next season.

“I think his contact, if the salary cap hits $9.4m, its gonna  be worth $1.1m or something like that next year.

“Ian Millward, who does the recruitment and a great job of it for the Dragons, he worked at St Helen's and James played under him.
