Good to see the Broncos still take these contests seriously, long held tradition that, stand up to the New Zealanders. Funny how a loss suddenly means the Coach doesn't know what he's doing with the Bench. Those guys lost not because of a poor bench. The Broncos were up for this, it's not like we were winning the battle of momentum from the start then went to shit when the reserves came on... The players looked burnt out from the start. it looked like the type of flat performance which signals something in the prep has gone wrong...they looked like Athletes that have over trained (not saying that is the cause. just using that example) they were bloody flat. As others have pointed out, we got out coached with the targeting of our back five, not those guys fault, the Broncos used to do that to Manu Vatuvei...go for him deliberately where other teams would kick away from the guy...I did not think anyone would be able to stop tackle two then three....but they did it...amazing defense. Our Kick chase on the other hand was poor. The Broncos scored so many times because frankly our blokes didn't bring the great defensive coaching they have been receiving and deliver it with commitment. That might sound like cliche, but the only reason the Warriors have been hard to crack, is because they have put the technique part and the effort part, as their highest priority. As folk have pointed out there was no running in numbers, now that can only be explained by the players assuming they were going to have an easy one. Right from the start our three man tackles were missing, there was no swarming in numbers to gang up on the runners, and the way the Broncos were playing, that is when you need it most. No need to panic. They were always going to go into next week the underdogs any way, at least they face that game with their eyes open. It will be interesting to see what SK does this week, they have set very high standards and there is no bullshit allowed, there will be consequences, it's part of their new go. Who would be a coach ? your fate is tied to the give a shit factor of your players. I'm pleased we have our hardest game in a few days, there is nowhere to hide from it, and it will do these guys some good. Make tackles and work hard on defence....and they win that game....it's not hard to see where they went wrong. At least they have set a standard this year and they know how to fix this.
