Triple M’s and dual code legend Wendell Sailor admits he’s shocked the Knights couldn’t keep young star Dom Young at the club after the winger reportedly signed a deal with the Roosters.
The Knights on Monday were dealt a cruel blow when it was revealed that the 21-year-old England international would join the Tricolours from 2024, according to News Corp.
Sailor recalled a chat with former Knights assistant turned Manly coach, Anthony Seibold, who revealed the club was prepared to “back” Young all the way.
“Anthony Seibold was on the coaching staff… I texted him and said, ‘This kid Dom Young can play’,” Sailor said on Triple M’s Rush Hour.
