Broncos back away from Dugan after social media rant

JOSH Dugan's bizarre outburst on social media, telling a fan to "end yourself" has come back to bite him - ending any chance he had of joining the Broncos.

After his Instagram rant on Saturday night, Brisbane ended negotiations for a lucrative contract, after the fullback's online comments.

The Titans and Panthers also said they weren't interested in Dugan on Sunday.

"In light of some fresh allegations of inappropriate behaviour, the Broncos have decided not to take the matter any further," Broncos chief executive Paul White said.

Following a taunt from a fan after posting a photo with his shirt off, Dugan responded: "go get another Raiders Tattoo then end yourself".
