Brisbane Broncos

Last updated: 2 December, 2016

Brisbane BroncosOne of the NRL’s most successful club during their short tenure, the Brisbane Broncos were formed in 1988 under coach Wayne Bennett. Bennett led the Broncos to six Premiership victories, and the side has lost just one Grand Final in their history. It is this culture, with the help of league legends Shane Webcke, Darren Lockyer and Alan Langer, that has enabled Brisbane to record the highest annual revenues out of all NRL clubs and maintain the largest crowd attendances in the competition with an average of 33,000 people per game.

In 2015 the Broncos were on the losing side in one of the greatest Grand Finals in NRL history, going down 17-16 to the North Queensland Cowboys in golden-point extra time.

2016 was another successful year for the Broncos. They finished the regular season in fifth position and progressed to within two matches of the NRL grand final, eventually succumbing to Queensland rivals the Cowboys in an epic extra time encounter.
