Adam Blair says Broncos professionalism helped him find his best form

Unread post by tsjonathan » Mon 13 Jul, 2015 11:00 pm

ADAM Blair says there is one major difference between the Broncos and his old club Wests Tigers — the level of professionalism.

Blair was a last-minute addition to Brisbane this season after leaving Wests Tigers on just three days’ notice.

He was bemused at the time and reticent to break a contract but the versatile forward has become a valued member of the table-topping Broncos who tackle the Tigers on Sunday at Suncorp Stadium.
It will be the first time Blair faces his old club who are struggling on and off field.
The Tigers’ coaching staff has changed dramatically since last year but their poor form has continued this season.

Blair said there was a noticeable difference in training intensity from the Tigers to the Broncos.
“We are all on the same page at training and everyone wants to be there,” Blair told The Courier-Mail.

“We are all excited and want to be there (at training) and that’s the biggest change I noticed.
“I think there’s a professionalism that this club has, the brand speaks for itself.
“It helps when you are winning though.
“I will stay away from the banter this week. This is an important game for both teams.
“They are not going as well as they want to be.
“They need to put some good performances in at the back end of the year and we need to keep our momentum.”

The Broncos are sailing towards their most successful regular season in club history and have even taken over a CityCat with a maroon and gold Broncos vessel unveiled by Mayor Graham Quirk.

The last Queensland team to adorn a CityCat was the Firebirds who won a premiership just weeks later.

Blair scored his first try of the season in Brisbane’s win over Canterbury.
He has improved tremendously since he was given a clip behind the ears from Broncos coaching staff for making just one run in their win over Cronulla in March.
He made 17 runs and 140m against the Bulldogs.
“You are going to have games like that,” Blair said about his Cronulla effort.
“Every game won’t be your best. You have to believe in what you can do though.
“Everyday you have to look in the mirror and ask ‘How much do I want it’?
“I know what I can do and since that day I haven’t looked back and I am enjoying myself a lot more.”
In a boost to the Broncos chances of winning seven straight on Sunday, the Tigers’ best player Robbie Farah is likely to be ruled out.
“It’ll be touch and go,” Farah admitted after struggling through training on Monday.

What a joker. This is the same guy who ran once for 8m not long ago as a starting prop!

If it's true though and people don't wanna be here and don't care, why is this allowed? Why are these guys in the team? Why are they not being told to pack their stuff and ship out?

Geez if we didn't train hard and put in in under 16's our coach had us run laps until we did. Anyone who still didn't, didn't play.

On Blair though seriously, the Tigers should hit back with some of his "professional" highlights during his time with is to put him in his place. What a dead set toss pot this guy is!!!

Wasn't he supposed to bring professionalism to the club.
I remember being at a training session when Blair first arrive and overheard Sheens say how impressed he was with his attitude and how good he was in the wrestling drills.
Guess it didn't take long for the Australian coach to whip that out of him.

Wait.... Blair is "in form"? Have to admit, they were some of the best 8mtrs I've seen him produce.

Glad we are rid of him.

Adam, I thought the true definition of professionalism was to achieve your best despite your conditions.

He still gives away a at least one penalty per match.
Is that very professional ?

Thats it though, they keep coming, so the truth doesn't bother our mob, they are quite happy it would appear to keep copping this type of backhander, as they don't seem to be doing anything to fix the problems.
