The Brisbane Broncos have hit a massive hurdle as they start their climb from their worst-ever finish in the club’s history.
The Courier Mail’s Robert Craddock told Fox Sports News that the new Broncos coach Kevin Walters has a big problem on his hands as a drought in the open player market takes its toll.
“But you know what has really hit them? The player market is shallower than a baby’s bath pool. It is so hard to get decent players.”

But Craddock said that these two potential signings are an indication to the Broncos’ problems of signing quality talent.
“Those guys went to England three years ago and they are your prized signings, once upon a time the Broncos wouldn’t have looked at them,” he said.
“It’s suddenly very tough for the Broncos… They have players that they would like to trade, but no-one is really interested.”
It does however appear likely that Ofahengaue will be in a Wests Tigers jersey in 2021, with reports he has signed a multi-year deal despite having two years to run on his current deal at Brisbane.
