The Broncos Leagues Club is today almost as quiet as a Sydney pub, after last night’s shattering end to the 2019 season for the battle-weary Brisbane side.
While some journalists were expecting a Mad Monday celebration at Alfie’ Bar for the boys, it seems last night’s absolutely rinsing down by the Parramatta Eels has left the club feeling like they probably shouldn’t be celebrating too much.
Coach Seibold last night Sunday promised to undertake a top-to-toe review after suffering their worst ever NRL loss in their embarrassing 58-0 flogging to Parramatta.
This caps off a fairly revolting season for Queensland in the NRL, with the Cowboys failing to make the eight, and the Titans winning yet another spoon.
On top of an Origin series that saw a bizarrely confident NSW side take home the biccies.
With several players now being treated for PTSD after their battering at the hands of Eels playmaker, Maika Sivo, the club as a whole is also being met with a large number of embarrassing records.
The result was not only the biggest loss in finals history — overtaking Newtown’s 55-7 defeat of St George in 1944 — it was also the proud club’s worst ever defeat, shading their 56-0 loss to Canberra in 2009.
The club’s premiership drought is now in its 13th year, the longest in their 31-year history.
A recent acoustics report of the Red Hill leagues club has measured the Broncos Headquarters at roughly 60-65 dBc – which indicates even the TVs have been turned down.
