HAAS’ BIG THREE

Payne Haas dropped a bombshell on the Broncos when he informed the club he wanted to test his value on the open market come November 1.

The Broncos are desperate to keep the star prop but his manager has revealed all 16 rival clubs — and even an NFL team — have expressed interest in Haas.

News Corp has since revealed the three things Haas is looking for that the Broncos must deliver in order to keep him.

The first is ‘money’ and whether the club is willing to match the $1.1 million salary Haas will likely be offered by rivals.

The second is ‘ambition’ because Haas wants to be at a club that can win a premiership.

And the third is ‘opportunity’ as the 23-year-old would like post-career opportunities that will help him in life after football.

According to News Corp, the Broncos are confident they can fulfil the first two requirements with the club said to have already discussed a three-year deal with $1 million a season.

The club is also expected to put together something that ticks off the third requirement too.

Haas manager Ahmad Merhi told News Corp last week that his client is “happy at the Broncos” but it’s in his “best interests” to test his value on the open market.

“I know several big clubs are keen, everyone has to look at their rosters, but Payne is happy at the Broncos,” he said.

“Last year when he looked at a release, the Broncos weren’t a finals team, but now they are a serious contender.

“If I get an offer from the Broncos I can’t refuse, then we would definitely sign before November 1, but right now it’s in his best interests to wait until November 1.

“Payne is committed to Brisbane and his heart and soul is with them right now.”

YOUNG DRAGON ON THE MARKET

Rising Dragons playmaker Jayden Sullivan has been informed he is free to negotiate with rivals immediately.

That is according to News Corp, who reports the 21-year-old met with incoming coach Shane Flanagan on Wednesday where he learnt his fate at the Red V.

Sullivan is signed by the Dragons until the end of 2025 on a deal understood to be worth around $500,000 a season.

He requested a release from the club last October to join the Bulldogs after veteran No.7 Ben Hunt re-signed long-term. But the local junior then withdrew that release after talking to club officials.

Sullivan started the season in the halves alongside Hunt but has a couple of injury hurdles with the latest likely to rule him out for the season.

News Corp reports Sullivan’s manager is shopping him to the likes of the Bulldogs, Wests Tigers and Knights. But given the Bulldogs have already signed Toby Sexton, the Tigers are favourites to land him.

MBYE AT CENTRE OF MULTI-PLAYER SWITCH

Moses Mbye could hold the key to the Eels landing an important signing.

The veteran utility is set to sign with St Helens — and the Super League heavyweights will then grant Joey Lussick an immediate release to join the Eels.

That’s according to News Corp, who reports Lussick could be back in the blue and gold jersey next week.

Lussick has spent five of the last six years in the Super League. He played nine NRL games for the Eels though in 2021 and is expected to return in a major boost to the club’s hooking stocks.

Veteran No.9 Josh Hodgson will miss the rest of the season with a neck injury, while Brendan Hands is in his rookie season.

Mbye has played 194 NRL games over 10 seasons but has fallen down the pecking order at the Dragons.
