NEWS The Third Coming of Wayne Bennett

New CEO Duncan Donuts isn't ruling out the third coming of Wayne Bennett possibly as coaching director or culture boss. And the players are right behind him. Not only that but the Voice of Brisbane claims it can name more than 10 players who've told their managers they'd switch to Brisbane‘s second team if Bennett is coach. For now, it's keeping those names a big secret, but let's hear what these Broncos have to say:

Corey Oates


“If Wayne was to come back it’d be awesome. Everyone would think the same thing. Wayne’s name speaks for itself. I know it was tough when he left in 2018, but that’s not on us, it was with everyone upstairs. Personally, as a player, I get along well with him. I really enjoyed having him here and everything I learned from him.

“It’s just his experience, knowledge and history he has with the club. That’s what the Broncos have been missing. With ‘Kevvie’ the passion has come back. They’d be a great combination together.”

Still has it

Matt Lodge:

“He is still one of the best mentors in the game. He made me feel like I would run through a brick wall for him so he clearly does something right. I don’t know it would work with two people running the show, but I’ve always respected Wayne and he did a lot for me. The older I get, the more I appreciate what he did for me letting me come back to the game at the Broncos. I definitely felt the love when he was here, he stuck up for me a lot, whether that was media criticism or the off-field stuff I was going through."

“We definitely have that connection where I played for him and played hard for him. He would be a great person for some of the young guys we have here. I don’t know who runs the show or does what, but if Wayne came back to help Walters, I guess the Broncos have to put that business plan together.”

Tevita Pangai Jnr :

“I’m really close to Wayne. We still keep in contact, he has always been a great mentor for me. Kevvie is doing a great job here and he reminds me a lot of Wayne in the way he treats people. Kevvie is getting the best out of me. Even though some results haven‘t gone our way, he is holding me accountable.”

Payne Haas:

“Wayne brought me to the Broncos and he has been a massive influence on my career. My dad actually wanted me to go to Melbourne, I was about to sign on the dotted line, but I got a call from Wayne at the last minute and he brought me to the Broncos and I haven’t looked back since. If he came back, it would be pretty cool, I know several of the boys would love to have Wayne back around, but we‘ll see what happens.”

Tom Flegler:

“His resume speaks for itself. I haven’t heard a single thing about Bennett returning, I find out most things through the media (such as the articles penned by award winning senior sports writer Peter Badel), but it would be great to have him back. Look at what he has done. He is a great coach and I’d love to play under him.”

Probably, after his exit from the Broncos. Just Wayne pumping up Walkers tyres though IMO
I hope Souths win tonight as I can’t stand the current Panthers.

But after that, I hope someone slashes those tyres. Walker is the last person that needs his ego stroked, not to mention he’s a grub 👎

Imagine Wayne’s ego if south’s win tonight. I do think it’s the lesser of two Evils though.

Walker was good in the first half, but when his team really needed him, he didn’t deliver.

He also had a really good season, but so far as achievements and clutch plays go, it’ll be hard for anyone to ever surpass Lockyer in 2006.

End of story.
He looked like the Rabbitohs most dangerous player in attack but really couldn’t make the right plays on the night. You put a prime Lockyer in that team last night and the Rabbitohs win the premiership easily.

Is Lockyer dead to Wayne?
I think it's very very clever wording.....
It's GF week, he can't put down his 5/8 in fact he wants to pump him up, which he has done.
But he did not say Walker is the best 5/8 he has ever coached, he just finished by saying it would be hard not to pick him.
The unspoken end to that sentence is, but I wouldn't pick him, coz of Wally, Kevvie and Locky :)
