The Eels are putting together an attractive offer for off-contract star Bronco David Fifita, according to a report by Fox Sports.
After recently locking up the likes of Matt Lodge, Tevita Pangai, Joe Ofahengaue and Pat Carrigan on new contracts, Brisbane could struggle to retain Fifita.
He is eligible to begin negotiations with rival clubs from November 1 and could be swayed buy a big-money offer.
Broncos board member Darren Lockyer admitted it would be tough to retain all of their players in response to reports that Fifta was being pursued.
“All of those forwards are priorities, but that’s the thing about the salary cap, you can’t keep them all,” he said.
“David Fifita is a guy who has come up through our system and we want him to be there long term.
“We want to retain all of those forwards and whatever money we have left in the cap will probably go to the kids that are coming through that we see as long-termers.”
