A number of Broncos are facing uncertain futures following the club's disappointing end to 2019.
Six players were reportedly spotted inside a Sydney pub's gaming area the night before Sunday's disastrous 58-0 elimination final loss to Parramatta, leading to speculation that coach Anthony Seibold has "lost" some of the players and Darius Boyd will hand over the captaincy.
The news gets worse for the Broncos skipper, with Boyd is set to be told at Wednesday's end-of-season reviews he is not in the team's plans for the opening round of the 2020 campaign, according to Fox Sports.
Additionally, star duo Jack Bird and Andrew McCullough could be on their way out, with the club considering letting Bird leave a year early.
The Broncos have also reportedly entered the Valentine Holmes sweepstakes.
Channel Seven's Chris Garry said the club have made it clear Boyd will not reach the 15-games threshold in 2020, which he needs to unlock an extra season in his deal.
“The bigger issue for Brisbane is what on Earth are they going to do next year,” Garry said.
“They don’t want Darius Boyd there. They don’t want Andrew McCullough there. But how are they going to clear that space in their cap? Who’s going to buy them? That’s the problem they face.
“He’s not going to play 15 games next year. That’s the conversation they’ll have and then they’ll figure out a way for him to exit gracefully.
“He’s won a premiership at the club, he’s a great figure at the club, he won’t get turfed out, but he’ll also be told that he’s not in the team for round one.”
The Daily Telegraph’s Dean Ritchie is reporting that the Broncos will not stand in Bird's way if he finds a new home.
“He’s got another season up there, he’s become the forgotten man of rugby league up there,” Ritchie told Sky Sports Radio.
