Corey Oates is getting closer to re-signing with the Brisbane Broncos after switching managers mid-season.

Oates parted with management company Gillis Schifcofske Sports Management and has signed on with SFX Australia.

It is said that Canterbury had made an $800,000 offer to him, but that deal is believed to have broken down.

Oates has previously expressed his desire to play in the back-row and it is believed the deal with the Bulldogs would have allowed him to play in his preferred position.

Wayne Bennett had said he would like Oates to remain on the wing if he is to stay at Red Hill.

Billy Slater has flown to Cairns and will miss Storm's R25 game due to a serious family illness.

I suppose Hughes will take his place at full back.

Trent Barrett and Scott Penn (Manly's owner and Chairman) are not getting on so well during this wind down of Barretts stay at the club .

Penn is apparently not happy with the way Barrett has gone public with his leaving how he has revealed issues with the club.

Barrett who seeking money from the club is reported to have a thick file of emails etc between Penn and him which may not show things in a good light!

Former Warriors coach Tony Kemp believes the club will not retain gun halfback Shaun Johnson and should instead pursue Penrith star Nathan Cleary.

It comes after the Warriors were knocked out of the finals by the Panthers on Saturday in a quiet showing from their marquee playmaker.

Kemp would like to see coach Steve Kearney remain at the helm, but was adamant that Johnson needed to be shipped off.

Dragons skipper Gareth Widdop’s season may be over after suffering a shoulder dislocation during his side’s 18-48 win over the Broncos.

It was the same shoulder Widdop dislocated three weeks ago, who was brought into the side with the knowledge that he would need surgery in the off-season.

The playmaker was instrumental in guiding the Dragons to a 34-18 lead, before sustaining the game ending injury early in the second half.

Roosters centre Latrell Mitchell has been penalised for a dangerous charge on Shark Josh Dugan during Saturday night’s qualifying final.

The match review committee handed Mitchell a grade one dangerous contact charge with a base penalty of 100 points, and should he accept an early plea, will receive 90 points.

However, due to 75 carry-over points, Mitchell would miss his side’s preliminary final clash.

Should the club decide to challenge the charge and be unsuccessful, he would receive 125 points and miss the do-or-die contest.

Therefore, Mitchell’s only chance of playing in the preliminary final is if he successfully challenges.

Latrell Mitchell will miss the next Roosters game - the preliminary final - after being found guilty of a crusher tackle on Josh Dugan.

It was a Grade 1 charge. he challenged it as he knew he would only get one match suspension whether he challenged or not.

It apparently took one hour forty minutes to hear his case. He was then found guilty in ten minutes of deliberation.

I agree with that. By his previous standards he has been ordinary this season. He’s definitely doing the right thing retiring at this point.

NQ Cowboys 

As well as seeing off retiring stars Johnathan Thurston and Antonio Winterstein, the club has also said goodbye to Coote, Linnett, Shaun Fensom, Sam Hoare, Josh Chudleigh, Kyle Laybutt and Shaun Hudson.

So after their poor season, the club is having a clear out.
