JAMES Graham vowed there is still fight left in him to make an impact on rugby league, after he played potentially his final game in the NRL.

Graham said he was “genuinely unsure” if he has played his last game for St George Illawarra Dragons after they ran out 20-8 winners over the Gold Coast Titans.

When asked about his future after the game by the team of Fox League pundits, Graham made no reference to Saints, but he did look forward to a return to England.

He also gave a clear signal of the fire that still rages in his belly after being asked by ex-Saint Mal Meninga to pick out one career highlight.

Graham, 34, answered: “I would like to think that moment is yet to come. 

“There is still a bit of fight left in me yet and still a bit of time to make an impact on our sport and try to do my best."

Graham, a Super League Grand Final winner in 2006, would look to add to his medal collection at Saints if, as expected, his move goes ahead.

St George players gathered around Graham after the final whistle in another signal that it could be his farewell appearance, but the player was unsure if his 187th game in the NRL would be his last.

“Genuinely unsure,” Graham told Fox Sports.

“Not sure what is happening just yet. The situation is pretty clear and we will see what happens in the coming days and weeks.

“My intentions are to go to England and play out the season there.

“After that who knows. I’ve sort of made Australia home and spent most of my adult life here so it would pretty hard not to come back.”

Pundit Michael Ennis put to his former Canterbury Bulldogs team-mate if he preferred a cold schooner or a warm pint after outstanding careers on both sides of the world.

“England is not going to recognise me,” Graham joked.

“I left a tea drinker and a pint of lager drinker and I’m going home drinking almond cappuccinos and I’m on the craft beer scene.

 “I don’t know what I’ve become.”

Meanwhile, Dragons coach Paul McGregor, who confirmed on Friday Graham wants to end his career at St Helens, was also unsure whether the player would feature again.

He told Fox: “Not sure, but we did that (the players gathering around him at the final whistle) because of that exact reason.

“We just said a couple of nice words and if it is James’ last game we just thanked him for what he brought to the club and we just had a bit of a moment there.

“That’s not up to me or James it is up to the recruitment and retention and the clubs to work it out.

“It will be worked out soon.

“James is fine if he plays next week he plays next week. He will be all in again. He played fine today.”
