Brisbane Broncos winger Corey Oates has appeared as a potential target for a number of Sydney clubs.

The Courier Mail's Peter Badel believes Oates is attracting a large number of teams, vying for his services.

Badel said on NRL Tonight "I can tell you that Corey Oates, has had rival offers from Sydney clubs to the tune of $700,000.

"It's big bucks for a winger, but wingers are now back in vogue.

“There was a time when we looked at wingers as cut-price options — players that were on $150,000.

“But we are learning in the game now that game-breaking wingers are needed and wingers with bulk and try-scoring ability like as Corey Oates has got are valuable to a team.

“He’s like a seventh forward, he’s been outstanding this year with nine tries from nine games and he usually makes 200m a game.

“The test now for Brisbane is whether they can match the offers."

The 24-year-old was born in Queensland and has played 131 games in his six seasons at the Broncos.

He's also represented Queensland the past three years in the Origin series.

“I don’t think they can match them, but I think they can get close.

“And if they get close I think Corey Oates is prepared to make a sacrifice to stay in Queensland.”

Oates added to his family earlier this year with a baby girl.


  1. To the rorters for sure. We just need that clown Robinson to deny they have any interest in him to have the 100% guarantee.
    😜 😜🤣🤣🤣

  2. Wake up DaffyDuck, we all ready have four wingers, CLOWN🤓🤡🤡🤡🤡…☝️🤣😅😆🤣

  3. Would be a great pickup for the Dragons, I’m not sold on our current wingers so happy to chase after Oates.

  4. Agree CMTD, exactly what we need. 2 big fast outside backs. Our spine is fine, our forwards are fine ( esp when woodchooks muppet cousin Mary learns to utilise a bench properly) . I think our team isn’t too far away considering the injuries/dramas we’ve had to start the season. Target Oates and Rapana with the 💰💰💰💰

  5. Yeah we should have made a play for him last year rather than also-rans like Ravalawa and Maranta.

  6. parraasylum I think you need to get locked up in the Parra Mental Asylum, that would be The Lunatic Asylum you water thief ❗❗ That would be after you have been flushed down through the “S” bend.💪🤣👍

  7. You had one big outside back you Illawarra MUPPET🤓 in Nene Macdonald and you let him walk🤣😂🤣😂🤣👍 However Saint Steelers backline are like Manly. Both need a classy winger and centre.🎱🎱🎱🎱🎱

  8. But before you guys get your hopes up for the porridge king Oates, I will let you in on a little tip. soufffffffffffffs the “TRANSIT LOUNGE” club are willing to slip him 700k and some Russell Crowe brown paper baggage for good measure. Illawarra Dragons have got no hope against the “TRANSIT LOUNGE” 🤣😂🤣😂🤣😂🤣😂🤣😂🤣 . – . – .💪🐔👍
