The Dolphins set their sights on two major transfer targets as Wayne Bennett gets rebuffed for Cameron Munster

The Dolphins have set their sights on two major transfer targets after their hunt of Cameron Munster appears to have gone stale.

Munster is set to sign a new contract extension with the Melbourne Storm, according to the Daily Telegraph‘s Brent Read.

That, however, means that Dolphins boss Wayne Bennett has shifted focus to another Melbourne star as well as the Newcastle Knights prodigy that is Kalyn Ponga.

“I think Kalyn Ponga and Harry Grant are the big ones they are after at the moment. Those are the two guys that they desperately want,” Read said of the Dolphins’ recruitment focus.

“I don’t think the Kalyn situation is going to be resolved any time soon because my sense is that while Kalyn is publicly saying, “I am committed to Newcastle and I want to win a competition down here”, there won’t be any rush to take up that option,” Read added.

“It is going to be a matter of months so the Ponga thing is going to drag on and while that is dragging on the Dolphins are hamstrung because they want to keep money in case they get Kalyn.

“They are very keen on Harry Grant as well the Dolphins and Jahrome Hughes.”
