Johnathan Thurston says he was surprised the Kevin Walters will not succeed Wayne Bennett at the Broncos, with Anthony Seibold set to be appointed coach from 2020.
JT Shares His Thoughts On Broncos' Coaching Gig:
"I thought he (Walters) would've been the perfect fit for the Broncos," Thurston told Triple M's Dead Set Legends.
"I was a little bit surprised by it but Anthony (Seibold) has done a great job at Souths.
"They've gone in that direction and only time will tell if that's the right decision."
Walters will continue to coach the Queensland Origin side, as he looks to orchestrate yet an other Maroons win after defeat in the 2018 series.
