Report: Broncos on red alert as two star announce their departure

My objective is to maintain both of them.” — Broncos’ fight to retain standout pair

Brisbane faces a fight to keep its star centre duo, but coach Kevin Walters has stated that the club has the authority to keep them – even if it means taking salary sacrifices to help build a premiership-winning force.

Selwyn Cobbo and Kotoni Staggs will be able to negotiate with other clubs once their current 2025 contracts expire on November 1, and both are expected to command a high price on the open market.

Cobbo’s versatility to play fullback and wing, which he will return to in the injury absence of Corey Oates (knee), and his outstanding performance for Queensland

But his Cherbourg roots will make him less likely to leave Red Hill.
Staggs, on the other hand, may prove a more tough prospect to maintain on the Broncos’ right edge, and if a game-changing performance against South Sydney on Friday night earns him a New South Wales Origin recall, his value will jump even further.

Brisbane has already secured big contract extensions with Payne Haas, Pat Carrigan, and Ezra Mam, and is expected to announce a multimillion-dollar agreement with standout fullback Reece Walsh soon.

However, Walters was adamant that Cobbo and Staggs would continue to be key players in his team’s title hopes long after their present contracts expired.

“It won’t be difficult; we just need to find a means to make it happen. They’re two fantastic players for us, and both have been through the academy; I believe we’ll be able to keep both of them,” Walters said.

“They are both going to demand a lot of money, but what we need to do is find a compromise with both players so that they can stay here, play in a great team at a great club, potentially for a little less money, but stay here and be successful.
