SAD NEWS:The broncos coach explains why Payne Haas should leave next season

Not everyone is convinced Payne Haas will be staying put at Brisbane while the Panthers are set to make a move for an unwanted Tigers playmaker.

Plus — Phil Gould was spotted meeting with a jailed former NRL player. But the Bulldogs supremo denied the meeting has anything to do with trying to recruit the player’s talented brothers.
The Broncos may present the best chance for Payne Haas to win a premiership but the appeal of “ridiculous” money elsewhere could be enough to lure the star prop away from Red Hill.

That is according to The Daily Telegraph’s Brent Read, who is not convinced the 23-year-old’s long-term future is at Brisbane.

It comes after confirmation Haas will test his value on the open market, with the Broncos front rower to hold off re-signing before he sees what other clubs are willing to offer him.

Read believes Haas could receive “ridiculous” offers from rival teams, with the Bulldogs expected to top the list of potential suitors for the NSW Blues representative.
Elsewhere, the Panthers are reportedly set to make a move for the off-contract Daine Laurie ahead of the 2024 season.

Laurie, who came through the grades at Penrith after first joining their SG Ball squad in 2017, left the club at the end of 2020 season for the Wests Tigers.
