Corey Norman
Broncos couldn't match deal

Corey Norman will be wearing Parramatta Eels colours in 2014 – and will tell the Brisbane Broncos as much sometime within the next few days.

After missing out on Canberra Raiders star Josh Papalii, who signed with Eels before backing out of the deal last week, the Eels went all out for Norman.

They have thrown a massive $450,000 a season at the boom utility back – money the Broncos simply couldn’t match. And don’t think the Papalii saga is over – fuming Eels officials are looking into possible legal action after the back-rower pulled out of his rich deal with the Eels.
