In the 33 seasons of the Brisbane Broncos, 2020 has to be the worst by far.
Languishing at 15th on the ladder, the proud club has once again been dealt a major blow. Not even 24 hours after falling 46-8 against Melbourne, the announcement came that boom back-rower David Fifita Jr had signed a mega-deal with "little brother" Gold Coast.
It's a betrayal of which had never been seen at Red Hill. In reality, Fifita becomes the first bonafide superstar to leave the club since Israel Folau fled to the AFL a decade ago.
The good news for Brisbane is that they will have money to spend - they had tabled a $750,000 offer for Fifita, and are prepared to bite the bullet on Jack Bird, saving a likely $400,000 of his $900,000 contract.
Throw in a host of departures and the impending retirement of Issac Luke, and Brisbane are looking at around $1.75 million in cap room.
So just who should Brisbane target ahead of next season? Here are 10 players I can see going to the club.
8. Kieran Foran
Considering Foran is not attracting much interest at the moment, Brisbane could move quickly and secure this deal without much of a bidding war - and possibly on the cheaper end.
Yes, Foran has struggled with injuries and mental health since leaving Manly in 2015, but he is still one of the best controlling halves in the league, emphasised by his recall to the New Zealand squad last season. A low risk, high reward contract, similar to the one given to Benji Marshall in 2017, could be beneficial for both parties.
