-NEWS- Xavier Coates may have played his last game for the Broncos

Courier Mail futurist Peter Badel thinks "Xavier Coates may have played his last game for the Broncos," based on an "understanding" that he's "no certainty" to return to the top squad unless injuries prevail. Holy "may have," Batman!

Kotoni Staggs says Coates has not been dropped because of niggling injuries. There must be some other reason:


“Xavier is a good winger and a good player. All I know is Xavier trained well today and his fitness is there. Everything is going to plan with him and hopefully in the next few weeks he can slot back in the team. But he is looking fit out on the field.”

That's all, folks?

“To play Origin, Xavier has to be good, but at the end of the day, the coaching staff makes the call and he is not playing because of the coach‘s reasons. We don’t want to change our team every week, we want to stick to the same team and changing the team every week isn’t ideal. Hopefully he gets his chance again this season, we have seven games to go so hopefully he can slot in there somewhere in the weeks to come.”

“We don‘t go into any game thinking we will lose. It was 12-all last time coming to the last few minutes and we let them off the hook. The Panthers are one of the best teams in the comp at the moment, but if we can play the way we did last time we can hold them out.”

Many of the media reports I see claim the fans are upset and angry over Coates not being in the side ... must be the first time they haven't visited a fan forum for their ideas
Most fans I see on social media say the same shit we do….

just trying to make us look like the bad guys, What’s new.

**** off craig, I hope he completely forgets how to do the things he doesn’t even do well now. Start from scratch you Dbag.

**** him, if WE don’t benefit from an early release than **** him,

Most Broncs fans don’t want to see the miserable prick picked, no qcup nothing

He can rot on the side right up until the final second of his contract.

I’m very happy to be the bad guys here, we need to stop playing nice on and off the field, unless you are the Roosters and everyone loves you for some reason, there is no benefit in it.

I have absolutely no time for the Storm. Bellyache has almost single-handedly ruined our game in his quest to stretch the rules to breaking point and beyond.

I do admire his balls-out cheek as he has a dig at us for not releasing 'his' player though. I so wish we had that attitude solidly embedded at our club. Them were the days.

But then change your mind and put a 6 month non-compete clause on him.
Yep, **** them. Maybe if they'd played nice with DD they would have a case but they chose to be petty.

Coates would probably be more valuable to them for the next couple of months than DD would have been starting a little earlier for us. Karma is a bitch.

Since when has Melbourne released a player early?
And they stop DD from taking up a role here 6 months after his contract is up.
Then turn around and complain we don't release Coates early to them?
Fkn arrogant, self righteous, hypocritical fuckers that single-teamedly give the middle finger to the rest of the NRL.
How anybody could hope the win the Premiership is beyond me

There is clearly a raw, petty hatred between Brisbane and Melbourne now and I don't mind it at all. I hope the next time we play them we just go full grub.
