BRONCOS prop Adam Blair will rein in his game following the brain snap which led to the fastest try in NRL history.

Blair insisted his continuing contract uncertainty was not playing on his mind following one of his poorest games in a Broncos jersey.

The prop was responsible for the risky offload from the kick-off of Thursday’s clash against the Eels at Suncorp Stadium which saw Kirisome Auva’a score within 12 seconds.

The play set the tone for the Eels’ 52-34 win.

Blair finished the game with four runs for 33m, 14 tackles and two errors.

“I’ve been getting away in the last month with a few late offloads,” Blair said. “I took a backwards step with that offload. I pride myself on the little things I do really well.

‘‘I let myself down big time.”

The 31-year-old New Zealand Test star is mulling over a move to either the Warriors, Dragons or Knights at the end of the season.

Eels’ fastest ever NRL try

Blair is still contracted to the Broncos for 2018 and said contemplating his future had not been a distraction.

“Everything is positive for me,” he said. “It’s not like I’m trying to find a club.

‘‘It’s a bit different when you’ve got nothing to go to.’’

Blair will have to carry the load along with young props Joe Ofahengaue and Tevita Pangai Jr following fellow starting prop Korbin Sims’ season-ending broken arm.

They will be tested by the Cowboys in Thursday’s derby at 1300SMILES Stadium and Blair said Brisbane had to respond in the final round clash.

“It’s another reality check again,’’ he said.
