Broncos players in dressing room scuffle
THE Broncos have been embroiled in a locker room scandal over a plot to identify a rat within the playing ranks.
Despite being denied by the club the story reported players had to be separated after a heated confrontation before a training session prior to their round six win over the Dragons.
Senior Broncos players are alleged to have told three players including the main suspect different versions of a news story before waiting to see which version was reported in the media.
The plot worked according to Triple M Brisbane ‘Marto and Ed Kavalee for Breakfast’ host and former Wallaby great Greg Martin.
“One of the stories was about Gillett going to St George. And when it appeared, bang, they knew who leaked it,” Martin told Triple M.
Martin said that the leak resulted in players posting a picture of a rat on the suspect’s locker which resulted in a scuffle between players.
“A scuffle ensued between the player with the rat that was placed there and the player that he thought had placed it there.
Martin believes the rat hunt is the main reason the club produced a below par performance against the Dragons, despite cruising to a 26-0 victory.
Despite the Broncos denials Martin said there was pushing and shoving between players.
“Yes, he is being shopped around by his manager, but not to St George. That was a plant to discover something.
“There’s a bit of trouble in the ranks at the Broncos. There’s a leak. There’s been far too many stories.”
Coach Wayne Bennett admitted after the Dragons game that he was far from happy with his players’ on-field performance.
“I just didn’t like the way we played tonight. It was a disjointed game,” Bennett said post match.
“We just couldn’t get momentum. We are at our best when the game was flowing and the game wasn’t flowing.”
New ideas don’t triumph because they’re right: They triumph because the people who championed the old ideas die.
