Broncos 2014 Analysis


Broncos 2014 Analysis

I wrote this for season 2013 – Filling the shoes of leadership is always interesting to watch in sport. When Cronin and Price left the Eels even the great Sterling and Ella and Kenny could not keep the blue and golds on top. Let’s see what the young Broncos and coaches can do.

And this - I honestly haven’t got a clue how Brisbane will do this season. And how they start may not even resemble how they finish.

I think the picture on both those comments is much clearer this time around.

If this is the “Strongest Line-Up” according to Big League then I think we have a clue about their likely results in season 2014.

October Outcome:

More likely an August finish and maybe well before that.

Every season in modern NRL at least one team surprises almost everyone with a terrific transition from also rans to play-offs. (Roosters 2010 last to GF; 2013 it was a late season rally by the Cowboys to a very controversial play-off loss)

Will it be the Broncos in 2014?
