Broncos rake Andrew McCullough is certain Damien Cook won’t be replacing him at the club amid reports of that Cook will follow Anthony Seibold to Brisbane.

“No definitely not, I’ve dealt with bigger things in my life than worrying about that,” McCullough told Fox Sports. 

“I’ve got another three years, so I don’t know where that comes from, but as Leonardo DiCaprio said in the Wolf of Wall Street, I’m not leaving.”

McCullough is signed until the end of 2021 with 236 games under his belt. While he has a real chance of reaching the big 300 game milestone, he is not looking too far into the future and is looking forward to starting the 2019 season injury free, with no concerns about external noise.

“I’ve dealt with this before a few years ago and it’s probably a blessing in disguise for me,” McCullough said in regards to the speculations around Cook.

“I’ve turned up in some of the best shape I have been in.”

“I tried to bounce back from an AC injury last year and people need to understand that I missed three quarters of the pre-season.”

“So it is just good to be back out there day one running and fully fit and trying to get back into it.”

McCollough struggled through the 2018 campaign, but is confident he will be better for an extended off-season.

“Personally I’m my own worst critic on the way I want to perform and get better.”
