'I don't care what he says': Keary's bemused response to Seibold's criticism

Sydney Roosters playmaker Luke Keary has fired back at Brisbane Broncos coach Anthony Seibold over criticism of his game.

Seibold had been attempting to defend his club captain Darius Boyd, who has been a regular focus for commentators and fans this year.

After Boyd was again criticised for making just two metres in the win over the Cowboys, Seibold suggested there onlookers had double-standards, pointing to Keary’s performance in the Roosters’ victory over the Raiders.

“Darius, for whatever reason, seems to be an easy target,” Seibold said.

“I had a look through the competition from last weekend. There’s an Australian number six playing for a team in Sydney who only made four metres last week and missed five tackles and not one thing was said in the media about that.

“His team won and our team won but for whatever reason because Darius only had one run, he’s been crucified all week from what I understand.”

And speaking to reporters ahead of the Roosters’ Round 22 clash with the Warriors, Keary couldn’t hide his bemusement at having been brought into the discussion.
