    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

    He is only young and shown glimpses of what he could become, he could become a really good winger/centre one day.

    Hope true, while he has a mistake in him, he is nowhere’s near as clumsy as some allude. He’d be a massive signing for us, he’s a 20 try per season outside back ffs

    Doesn't looked to bad, Meaney and Okunbur will probably look elsewhere though.

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