Anthony Seibold says entire Broncos club needs a review

humiliating

Shattered Broncos coach Anthony Seibold has pledged to undertake a full review of the club in the wake of Brisbane’s humiliating 58-0 season-ending finals loss to Parramatta. Seibold now has the ignominy of the worst loss in Brisbane’s 31-year history on his resume and the NRL’s reigning coach-of-the year claimed major responsibility for the 11-tries-to-nil massacre at Bankwest Stadium.

worst premiership drought

The shocking defeat extended the worst premiership drought in Broncos history to 13 years and Seibold will come under pressure next season to rebuild Brisbane as a title force in his second year at the helm.

stain on Brisbane’s proud history

While 17 Broncos players should take a large portion of the blame for a performance that represents a stain on Brisbane’s proud history, Seibold vowed to put the entire club under the microscope – himself included. “We’ve got to have a good hard look at things from top to bottom,” Seibold fired.

my job and responsibility

“I’m just really disappointed and embarrassed. “I can’t toss up any excuses for that. “It’s my job and responsibility to fix this. “Everything’s on the table. I need to try and fix this. It’s a big game and we folded. “It’s not good enough.”

debacle

It has been a turbulent debut season at Red Hill for Seibold. The former Souths mentor had a delayed start at Red Hill due to the coach-swap fiasco with Wayne Bennett and the Broncos were left chasing their tail all season after slumping to a 2-6 record from eight rounds. Seibold did a commendable job steering the Broncos to the finals given the early-season adversity, but yesterday’s debacle at Parramatta will leave a bitter taste with Brisbane bosses for the summer. If Seibold is promising a review, he should start by gutting his scrumbase.

torn apart

Brisbane’s playmaking spine was torn apart by the Eels as Parramatta trio Mitchell Moses, Dylan Brown and Clint Gutherson gave a chilling insight into true cohesion in a football team. The Broncos finished the season with a losing record with 11 wins, 13 losses and a draw and Seibold lamented Brisbane’s attitude in defence.


men against boys

“They let each other down, they let the club down,” Seibold fired. “It was men against boys out there today. I lost count how many points they scored on fifth tackle. “There’s a lot of good young men in our club. But we want winners. It’s my responsibility to fix that. It’s going to be a long off-season and a long pre-season.


need to have a good look at our halves

“We need to have a good look (at our halves). We’re not here to make up the numbers and finish eighth every year. “I’m embarrassed and I’m sure the players will be embarrassed. “We’re a million miles off the top teams. It’s disappointing.”

Honestly, I'd be ok with giving him a performance review and telling him we're parting ways.

That was one of the worst showings I've ever seen by a Broncos team, in a finals game no less. Seibold has shown he is unable to make the big calls and there has not been one ounce of improvement from the team this year. What would a review show? All the things he did this year sucked? He was unable to make the tough calls when he needed to?

There are a few on here that are relying on faith that next year we will come good and it will all be worth it. On what basis? There isn't any.

i didn't read any of the content of the original post...the headlines were enough...

I posted recently the idea of a Director of Football (or Technical Director...take your pick) for the Broncos. Should probably make it a thread in and off itself cause i believe its worthy of debate.

I'm not sure if Siebs had his hands tied behind his back due to decisions made before he arrived and whether a internal edict said he cannot bench a number of players who were resigned by the club in 2017 and want to see some return on the investments made...

But listen, Siebs maybe a relative rookie as a head coach but he ISNT a idiot...

If he relys so much on analytics like he says he does it would be extremely obvious to pinpoint the weaknesses in this squad. So again i ask you to think about the above statement...

Cause if the above is true, and Siebs is after all a employee of the club...and he has been told to "make it work"....can anyone be surprised by the results..?

I defy any current coach in the NRL to make "that" spine work...? You cant, its irrevocably broken, the team knows it and our opposition knows it. Dearden cant be the answer to it either cause he is YOUNGER than our 2 best players who are both 19. And how did that experiment end up relying on 2 19 year olds..?

As I said elsewhere, the only way I can make sense of this disappointing season, and yesterdays loss is that Seibold gave every player, particularly the seniors, a chance to prove they are worthy of the club. We know the result of that, and that has to be shown in the roster for next season.

As well, given Seibold's comments about reviewing the entire club, maybe there is more to the rubbish than just him and the on-field performances. In any case, next season's roster will tell all

We missed Bellamy because he didn’t want to sit out a year.
We still end up signing Siebs then sack Bennett.
Tell me why we couldn’t just sack Wayne and sign Bellamy for this year

I don't think it was just because Bellamy didn't want to sit out a year, at the end of the day Bellamy didn't want to leave Melbourne.

Not saying the whole thing couldn't have been handled better but i think Bellamy simply picked Melbourne over us, regardless of what year he started.

All bullshit talk.

You don't need an end of season review to conclude Boyd is cooked and is not a 5/8, Turpin is not a halfback, Macca shouldn't be our first choice 9, Shiba shouldn't be making our bench and I could go on.

If you don't know this shit instinctively then how are you coaching first grade. Honestly, this is fucking empty talk.

It's all absolute bullshit until round 1 next year when we see what team he names. Picking Turpin over SOS showed his cards last week. Moving Milford to fullback to accommodate Boyd showed he doesn't have the guts to make the big calls.

None of that matters now anyway, it's not like we're beyond fixing, surely someone like Lockyer could see t his shit unless he's as dumb as Seibold which wouldn't surprise me. Plenty of excellent footy players have no idea how to coach or make the tough decisions.

He has until halfway of next year, if we're still rolling out a dud team with players all over the 17 in the wrong positions and paper thing defence he's not going to survive the season.

Also - **** off Ben Cross. Why is that useless **** an assistant coach at our great club? Really, Ben Cross?? No wonder the players don't give a ****, is there a single person in that coaching staff who would have the respect of a Broncos fan?

Bring in Justin Hodges, I bet he wouldn't be afraid to call out the players for playing like shit.

Hopefully they review the senior players, and why Seibold kept selecting them. This season could’ve been spent getting the pieces together to set the side up moving forward. It likely would’ve meant making an already young roster younger and missing the finals. But imo that’s better than we what we ended up with, with Seibold picking a shambles of a spine because of their “winning record” so they could limp into the finals only to be humiliated.

Seriously. Watch the game with 21:30 in the first half or something to go. Where Boyd has the ball bounce of his BACK!! Like already thats pretty stupid. Then he's walking while players are running past him to defend. That was the try that killed our spirit.

That little play is the end of Boyd for me.

We missed Bellymyth because he didn't want to coach a team without Cam Smith and be proven to be just a normal average coach

And I'm glad of it, I don't want that shit stain cancerous prick anywhere near the club I love
