Broncos v Sharks – Defiant Anthony Seibold publicizes he 'gained't be …


With 10 minutes left on the clock at Suncorp Stadium it appeared the Brisbane Broncos were all-but certain to claim a pressure-relieving win over the Cronulla Sharks.

Instead, besieged coach Anthony Seibold was once again forced to answer tough questions about his future at another painstaking post-match press conference.

About Broncos
A bucking horse is any breed or gender of horse with a propensity to buck. They have been, and still are, referred to by various names, including bronco, broncho, and roughstock.
The harder they buck, the more desirable they are for rodeo events. Roughstock breeders have long established strings of bucking horses with broodmares and stallions that have been bred and crossbred to more consistently produce the desired temperaments and athletic ability needed for bareback and saddle bronc competition. Bareback broncs are typically smaller, faster athletes whereas saddle broncs are heavier bodied athletes of great strength and endurance.

About Sharks:

The Broncos led John Morris’ side by eight points after their best 70 minutes of a disastrous 2020 campaign.

But their collapse was even more spectacular as the Sharks produced three unanswered tries to snatch a 36-26 victory.

Asked point blank if he believes he will see out the remainder of the season as the Broncos’ head coach, Seibold replied: “Yeah I believe so.

“I certainly won’t be quitting. I don’t think quitting is an example that this young group needs to see or wants to see.

“We made some big steps forward in the last two weeks but ultimately we lost both games and conceded a lot of points.

“But I think everyone can see where we’re heading there tonight, it was a much better performance.

“That’s not my decision … but I won’t be quitting, that’s for sure.”

Seibold, who has three seasons remaining on his Broncos contract, added when asked if he is getting the best out of his players: “I thought for 70 minutes it was a very, very good performance but the game at NRL level goes for 80.

“Last week we were good for 40 minutes, this week we were good for 70 minutes.

“We need to continue to work and improve our performances. I thought it was a big step in the right direction from an attacking point of view but we just can’t concede that many points.

“And to concede three tries in the last 10 minutes without touching the footy just in some ways summed up our year today.”

The coach confirmed star back-rower David Fifita, who last week signed a three-year deal with the Gold Coast Titans, will make his return against South Sydney on Friday night.

Seibold also hinted at more changes to his line-up in an effort to improve the Broncos’ woeful defence.

“We’ll get David back next week so he’ll come into the 17 somewhere but who can do their job in defence is what I want to look at,” he said.

Meanwhile, Seibold singled out Darius Boyd for special praise after the veteran had his best game in recent memory following his switch from left centre to full-back.

“He was outstanding, Darius,” Seibold said.

“He was very good, he didn’t deserve to be on a losing team.

“I thought he was great out the back of shape in attack, I thought defensively he was everywhere and I thought he was outstanding.”
