EXCLUSIVE: Bumbling Broncos 'confused' by 'unusual' training, Wally Lewis says


What a total dumpster fire. No wonder they are all out trying to spread the broncovids.

Of course they have, can you imagine losing 10 (potentially 11 if pangai is seperate) and your caoch for 2 weeks.


They are also playing raiders.

I know our season is off track, but damn that would be hilarious. Imagine if it happens and they cop a 70+ point hiding by the raiders.

Misbehaving NRL players have been warned their livelihoods are on the line as ongoing COVID-19 protocol breaches put the season in jeopardy.
It comes after reports that ten Broncos players’ questionable visit to a Brisbane pub earlier this month may have included drinking at a sports bar and playing the pokies – both clear breaches of the NRL’s strict biosecurity rules.

The Courier Mail spoke to one pub patron that said the players’ table was covered with glasses of beer. Witnesses say David Fifita, Kotoni Staggs, Jake Turpin, Ben Te’o, Corey Oates and Brodie Croft were among the players in attendance.

Broncos COVID breach: Why the NRL can’t go soft on Broncos’ pub boozers
Peter Badel, The Courier-Mail

There is no grey area — the Broncos have again breached the NRL’s strict COVID guidelines.
First it was Tevita Pangai Jr. Now it’s up to 10 of his teammates following a boozy pub outing at the Everton Park Hotel.

If the NRL’s investigation has any veracity, the integrity unit cannot arrive at any other decision but to hit the Broncos with a breach notice on Wednesday for contravening the code’s biosecurity protocols.

The Broncos should be fined $50,000 by the NRL for a second COVID offence in five days.
The group of players that are currently subject to a police investigation, including David Fifita, Corey Oates, Kotoni Staggs and Jake Turpin, should be stood down for at least two matches.

This probe is a huge test of credibility for acting NRL chief executive Andrew Abdo because the ramifications involve decimating the roster of the code’s richest club and raising the prospect of the Broncos struggling to field 17 fit players.

If the NRL goes soft, the governing body will not only be exposed as hypocrites, but the COVID policy they have worked so hard to implement, enforce and enshrine will be rendered impotent.

Last week, the NRL fined Wayne Bennett $20,000 for lunching with his partner. Dragons prop Paul Vaughan was placed in a ‘COVID hold’ for merely attending a cafe.
The conduct of the Broncos’ Everton Park crew is equally indefensible — and the manner of the COVID breach exponentially worse.

The NRL’s COVID guidelines are so murky and ever-changing that Broncos and NRL officials were on Tuesday going back and forth, privately trying to establish whether a formal breach had occurred.

All that was missing was the silly jingle from the Benny Hill Show.

But this much is beyond dispute: on June 23, a letter sent by the NRL to all clubs made it clear that attending “pubs, RSLs, Leagues Clubs, Bowls Clubs and Surf Clubs” were banned.

On July 16, the NRL’s COVID rules were beefed-up.

That day, the NRL did a deal with the Queensland government. The Premier would continue to allow NRL border travel under a special exemption — on the proviso Queensland’s NRL players returned to the code’s strictest protocols.

The NRL agreed. That meant players from the Broncos, Cowboys and Titans could not attend pubs, regardless of the 14-day self-isolation rule regarding travel to and from NSW.

Broncos players have tried to argue they were lunching at a restaurant inside the pub, but

Queensland police have told the NRL the group are clearly seen drinking in a bar area.

For that reason, Abdo and ARL Commission boss Peter V’landys should throw the book at the Broncos.

For Broncos chairman Karl Morris, it is yet another reason why he should read Brisbane players the riot act and put a broom through the entire club.

Kick them out for the rest of the season, give all 15 clubs a bonus 2 points which is only fair given the last 7 teams playing them would have won anyway.
(Except for my poor old Cowboys which would have been a nil-all draw!)
Kind of like cutting out the middleman to get to the points really ...

I wonder what will happen.

Probably a fine.

Maybe the ole 'loophole'?

They can't suspend 10 players can they?

with Premier Palaszczuk reminding the nrl that Qlders come first so stop screwing around...maybe she should direct some of those comments to the Broncovids.

I would love to see the Raiders put a record score on the Broncos this weekend. The Raiders have already pumped them 56-0 before

A Bulldogs win against the Tigers would be great too

There is already an article saying the NRL has cleared them.

If that were Manly we would have been kicked out of the comp, but money talks.
