“They’re getting away with mediocracy” | Gordie Laments Another Poor Broncos Season
THE RUSH HOUR QUEENSLANDER WITH DOBBO
You know your club is in dire straits when tickets for a prime-time fixture are being offered and two-for-one prices, but that is exactly the position Brisbane find themselves in ahead of this Thursday’s clash against South Sydney. A match that would traditionally be one of their highest-drawing crowds of the season.
The Broncos are now perilously close to the bottom on the NRL ladder after the Bulldogs upset win over the Dragons yesterday with just one game separating the two languishing teams. The 2021 season is now starting to replicate the disastrous events of last year which saw the Broncos ‘win’ its first wooden spoon in club history.
Speaking on The Rush Hour Queenslander with Dobbo former captain and club legend Gorden Tallis has lamented the another poor season from the club and has singled out two key areas where the club is doing itself no favours when it comes to recruitment and retention as well the increasing impact of player managers driving up the value of underperforming players.
“It should be hurting the players (losing), but it’s not. Remember last year they’re crying after one game, then they’re happy after one game. Then there’s a gender reveal after the game. They don’t care, they’re getting away with mediocracy.”
The Broncos will be hoping for an influx of talent to join Adam Reynolds in 2022 with the club still interested in securing the services of Dane Gagai and Jaydn Su’a.
