Brisbane Broncos 2019 NRL Season Preview & Analysis
The Broncos are looking to start 2019 and the Seibold era in a winning fashion.
Finished in 2018: 6th (15 wins, 9 losses)
Key ins: Sean O’Sullivan (Roosters), Shaun Fensom (Cowboys)
Key outs: Korbin Sims (Dragons), Josh McGuire (Cowboys), Sam Thaiday (Retired)
Coach: Anthony Seibold
Captain(s): Darius Boyd
Summary: The Broncos boast one of the best-balanced sides in terms of youth and experience. 2018 ended in disappointing fashion with a towelling at the hands of the Dragons.
Many pundits are eagerly waiting to see how this new look pack performs with a new coach at the helm. Anthony Seibold will bring his own unique brand of footy from Redfern to Red Hill. How the Broncos perform this season may lay solely on what Seibold plans to do with the halves pairing.
Milford is a stud, but last year showed that even with a bullocking forward pack, he need s a game manager beside him. Will Kodi Nikorima step up to the plate? Is Sean O’Sullivan the long-term solution?
Only time will tell what Seibold decides and that in itself will be the reason the Broncos overachieve or utterly disappoint.
Key stat: The Broncos ranked #5 in scoring in 2018.
