If I told you that current Broncos coach Anthony Seibold coached the Rabbitohs in 2018 and won Dally M coach of the year would you believe me?
No? Well he did.
He is now coaching a side that got belted 58-0 in the finals series by the Eels and now in Round 4 have been belted 59-0 by the reigning premiers the Sydney Roosters, with Josh and Brett Morris showing why they’re still up there with the best of the best.
The Broncos have suffered a record-breaking loss to a Roosters side who were missing James Tedesco because of a very high temperature.
I’m sure that Seibold’s temperature is through the roof.
The game stats were all in the Roosters favour: possession, completion, metres, line breaks and tackle breaks.
Broncos fans, you might want to look away if you haven’t already, because you made 11 errors, eight penalties conceded, 47 missed tackles and Jesse Arthars sent to the sin bin at the 56th minute.
In a club-record loss, the only positive is that Payne Haas still gave it all with 15 runs for 103 metres, broke six tackles and made 0 errors.
The Morris brothers showed their combination with each other are still very good with brother Brett setting up Josh.
Brett ended up scoring one try, setting up two tries, 144 running metres, three tackle breaks and made one error with brother Josh scoring one try, one try assist and having 132 running metres for six tackle breaks, one line break and making one error.
The halves were very good with Luke Keary scoring a try and setting up two others.
Playing his fourth game for the Roosters, Kyle Flanagan scored his second try for the Roosters and setup one more.
Lindsay Collins coming off the bench was superb. He scored a try and ran for 272 metres along with nine tackle breaks, one line break and made zero errors.
Anthony Milford looked like he forgot how to kick the ball, Darius Boyd did not look like he wanted to be there and the Broncos had no gas in the tank because they kept knocking the ball on and giving away penalties.
This gave the Roosters the field position they need to score.
This is the Broncos’ worst loss in their 32-year history. Fans are demanding answers.
Would the Broncos be embarrassed like this again if Wayne Bennett was still in charge?
Would Anthony Seibold get South Sydney their 22nd premiership if he would’ve stayed?
Broncos, bow your heads in shame.
