Adam Keighran of Roosters Eye Warriors in place of Mitchell Pearce,...

The Sydney Roosters have set a goal for Warriors to ditch Adam Keighran to fill the troubled halfback position after the club sent Kyle Flanagan to pack last week.

The Roosters are still keen to bring Mitchell Pearce home, but it is now unlikely that the Knights will set him free.

Keighran sets two important criteria for the roosters – he can not only play halfback, but is also an accomplished goalkicker.

With Flanagan gone, the roosters don’t have a reliable goalkicker in their roster and that’s one of the 23-year-old’s main draws for the roosters.

Keighran is also versatile – he scored a hat trick in his last game for the Warriors in the 20th round against Manly – and played at the centers.

STORM’S GRAND FINAL T-SHIRT SHENANIGANS

The NRL are not impressed with the Storm players’ choice as they celebrated their grand final triumph.

The players wore T-shirts with six Premiership rings to symbolize six Premiership wins – although two of those titles were withdrawn from the club for the salary cap.

The record books say the storm only won four titles, with the t-shirt reopening old wounds.

The NRL has not made an official protest – but they are far from happy.

RITTERZEICHEN INTRIGUING BRITISH TEEN

The Knights signed the nephew of Star Canberra hooker Josh Hodgson – Bailey Hodgson – a talented 17-year-old full-back who has represented England’s youth team, made his world-class debut for Castleford last weekend.

But the Knights have had the youngster in their sights for some time in the English junior system, where he was outstanding.

Hodgson has a lot more pace than his famous uncle and can play in the centers too.

He is expected to play for Castleford in the 2021 season before making the big move to the NRL the following year.

PAYTEN HOLDS HOPE IN YOUNG HALF

Cowboys trainer Todd Payten hasn’t given up on keeping promising halfback Jake Clifford just yet.

Clfford was given permission to check out rivals before Payten was named head coach for 2021 and set his sights on Newcastle.

The boy supposedly wants to move across state borders – but Payten would be happy if he stayed.

“He’s got some skills and with special coaching from someone like Johnathan Thurston he could really get to the next level,” said Payten.

“He’s asked, but we have to see what happens.”

With Michael Morgan missing much of this season due to injury, Clifford played 14 mixed-result games in 2020.
