Queensland coach Kevin Walters has had a swipe at those that reckon the Broncos are going to slide in 2017.
Speaking to Triple M Brisbane's Marto, Ed and Robin this morning, he gave his thoughts on Brisbane's 26-18 win over Cronulla last night.
"I thought the loss over in England would really sharpen them up – which it did," Walters said.
"People forget the quality of some the players in this Brisbane team; guys like Anthony Milford and Ben Hunt."
"Sam Thaiday last night was really outstanding. Adam Blair, Josh McGuire – all these players are experienced players."
Walters also praised the performance of new captain Darius Boyd before making his thoughts clear.
"People who are writing Brisbane off – not making the 8 and all these sorts of things – they’re the ones with the white noise, not Wayne," he said.
