The Broncos are looking to sweep up Ivan and Nathan Cleary in a package deal, as reported by The Daily Telegraph’s Dean Ritchie on Triple M’s The Rush Hour with MG on Thursday night.
It would be a major coup for Brisbane, who are are actively looking to find a coaching successor for Wayne Bennett and have struggled to fill the void at halfback left by Ben Hunt.
Bennett and Nathan Cleary both come out of contract at the end of the 2019 NRL season, while Ivan Cleary is contracted at Wests Tigers until the end of 2020.
“There’s been speculation for a few months now that Nathan and Ivan Cleary would go to the Roosters on a package deal after next year,” Ritchie said.
“The latest rumour suggests they could pack up their bags, book a flight together, head straight to the Broncos.
“By that time, Bennett’s gone, and they could be the halfback and coach to take Brisbane into the future.
“Look, it’ll be denied now and it’s a rumour now so I’m not going to categorically say it will happen, but certainly where there’s smoke, there’s fire.”
