Brisbane coach Anthony Seibold has confirmed his interest in former NRL star Ben Te’o.

The 33-year-old played over 150 NRL games spending time at the Tigers, Broncos and Rabbitohs before code-hopping to rugby union in 2014.

Currently signed with Japanese Super Rugby team the Sunwolves, the former Origin player has been training with Broncos players to keep fit while the Super Rugby season is suspended due to coronavirus.

Te'o was on Ch7 news and said he will be hoping for a run with the Broncos if Japanese Rugby doesn't get up and running again.

Round 3:

Matt Lodge, returning from a partial ACL tear, has been included on the extended bench but is set to come into the game-day 17 after getting through Wednesday's captain's run with flying colours. "He trained really well, he’s been training all week," captain Alex Glenn said. "Our trainers put him through a few tests that he passed easily. Lodgey’s fit and ready to go. He’ll come off the bench though whereas normally he’ll start on the field. He’s pumped to just be back out there and adds strike force to our team." The Broncos have won four of their past five games against the Eels at Suncorp.

I am sure they will come good.....eventually .
Bennett was right when he said he left a good playing roster and was happy to coach them until the end of 2020.
Management however had stars in their eyes at the prospect of a new younger "coach of the season" opportunity

Just because a coach may be good at one club does not mean they will be great at another as there is more to it than just the players.
Look at Hasler with his move to the dodgies and back to the seagles.
The mess the dragons have been in for years and even N Brown went to the UK where he did well and S Price at a pinch to.

They went well the first 2 rounds. Then there was the coronavirus break. It's like they didn't stay fit during the break. This week could be the start of their improvement.

Look at a player like Milford. He doesn't look as fit as what he once was. Did he drink a few hundred cans of XXXX during the break???

But you could also say, the Bunnies have a much better squad than Brisbane, and Manly have a much better squad than the Bulldogs.

And, of course, well done the Warriors! :D Nice to see Blake Green still has a few tricks in his locker; warmly remembered by all Wigan fans.
