Dobbo was just on Macquarie Sports Radio and mentioned that Darius Boyd wont be playing for the Broncos next season and that Corey Oates is heading to Belmore next season!

I can't see this one happening and hope it doesn't. Oates has a terrible set of hands on him at times and would cost a arm and leg to get him down here.

I'll take Dobbo's word over Sportingnews any day of the week

Broncos are in crisis. They have cap issues with overpaid duds in Boyd, Bird and Milford all contracted on big bucks. They also made the mistake of re-signing both of Lodge and TPJ.

For them, Oates will unfortunately pay the price and i wouldnt be surprised if they lose David Fifita who is off contract next year.

Boyd 800k
Milford 1m
Bird 1m
Lodge 700k
Haas 500k
TPG 600k
McCullogh 500k

They also need a 1,6,7 & 9 before re-signing Oates and Fifita

This is the broncos. They will likely sign another 2 million dollar players after they upgrade Oates and Fifita.

Weren’t the cowboys big for him anyway.

I LOVE Oates, but surely this is bs. I just can't believe it. I've always wanted him, but I thought there was no way we'd get him for 600k or less. If we did sign him it'd be around that mark.

It really depends on the price. I think any player of Oates quality we should sign if the price is right. That's the problem tho, the price being right. The Cowboys have money to spend, especially on outside backs, so that's going to be the problem.

He’s a winger who has hands for feet at times. Big strong and runs hard but yeh I’d prefer semi everyday

There's a few outside backs I'd rather from the Broncos before Oates tbh.

Staggs
Isaako
Coates

I would prefer Semi but Oates would help us coming out of our end on kick returns and scores plenty of trys.
