I am only going on these four facts:

1. The only source saying Briers is "set to" go to Souths is one Shoosh column by Buzz Rothfield. He sometimes gets things right, but often doesn't.

2. Lee Briers himself responded on SENQ saying there was no truth to THAT rumour. He said he does talk to Wayne, but it wasn't about that. He didn't beat around about it. He flatly dismissed it.

3. He's off contract at the end of the season, so any club is fair game until the Broncos announce his extension.

4. Rumours regarding Wayne Bennett are always 3D chess. You'd never bet either way on any of them. Take TPJ, for example.
Fair enough mate, no skin off my nose that you don't believe me. But anyway, your denial in some way tells me we are getting a real good assistant next year. Hopefully you blokes well get a great replacement for him too.

So what's behind the confidence on your part that he is 100% going to Souths? Not sure if you've said this yet.

Rothfield has no contacts at the Broncs, he's said this several times.

I expect most of this gossip comes from player agents who talk to multiple clubs.

I don't profess that I have some inside knowledge of the internal workings of my club but I do know for a fact Briers will be at Souths next year.

Well Mr Red .
Spill the beanz . You act like you know more than you`re letting on, then when asked the source you cite some obscure League news site that no one has heard of and rely on a rumour started by a rumour monger .

If the Buzz article is your best info I wouldn`t be going to an opposition forum and telling tall tales unless I was a TROLL or I believed in Santa Claus .

Further why would Uncle Wayne employ a guy who is known for high risk attacking football , when his Bennet ball style is pretty much the opposite of what the Broncos have done since Briers came on board ?
The "new" Wayne ? I highly doubt that .

The bloodletting commences:

Badel says Broncos won't extend Briers. Both parties had an option for 2025, expiring on June 30, but didn't exercise it. He'll probably return to the UK. The Souths rumour was bullshit, or half-baked at best.

Disappointed to see Briers go... I thought he brought some smarts to our team and had them thinking about what was actually going on in front of them.

I'm hoping DD is looking to bring in some assistants that will drag this team into the 21st century of rugba leeeeg

This purge of assistants has got to be happening for a reason. Someone is upsetting the apple cart at the moment. Or Donuts has recognized things aren't where they should be and is flexing muscle.

Or the Broncos made a grand final and so we need to lose 4 starting 17 players and three coaches.

Last season I was sure we'd see Karmichael Hunt graduate into an assistant coaching role, but this season his bus has taken a pretty sharp wrong turn.

Word is the reason Briers is leaving the Broncos is because of family reasons and he's heading back to England.

Lets stop crowing about this until it is actually confirmed. We've seen this before and it ended up in tears after the Grand Final
