With his one-year Broncos deal expiring at season's end, Oates is in high demand with powerful wingers who can take pressure off the forwards now among the most valuable players in the game.

Oates' form has been one of the lone bright spots for Brisbane during a subpar start to the season.

The 24-year-old sits second on the leading try-scorers list with nine four-pointers from nine matches and is averaging 167 metres per fixture.

“The test now for Brisbane is whether they can match the offers," Badel said.

“I don’t think they can match them, but I think they can get close.

“And if they get close I think Corey Oates is prepared to make a sacrifice to stay in Queensland.”
