Graham set for Canterbury exit

Canterbury Bulldogs 24-12 New Zealand Warriors

Canterbury Bulldogs forward James Graham is set to join St George Illawarra Dragons on a three-year deal.

The England international will link up with fellow countryman Gareth Widdop as the prop’s spell with the Bulldogs comes to an end after six seasons.

Graham joined Canterbury from St Helens and has become one of the best front-rowers in the world during his time in the NRL.

In 2014, Graham won the Dally M Prop of the Year – a massive achievement for any player.

St George’s signing of Graham hasn’t been officially announced yet but the Englishman told Fox Sports’ NRL 360 that the contract is close to being agreed.
