Broncos eye Wayne Bennett, as do Brisbane bid team

The Brisbane Broncos could be poised to make a bid to lure former coach Wayne Bennett back to the club with the decision to sack Ivan Henjak today.

Bennett, whose family live in Brisbane, continues to keep everyone guessing about his coaching future with St George Illawarra and South Sydney vying for his signature and Brisbane looking for a new coach in 2012 following their shock sacking of Henjak late on Monday.

Bennett was the Broncos foundation coach when they made their debut in 1988.

Adding to the intrigue is the high-powered consortium bidding to form Brisbane’s second NRL team also targeting master coach Bennett.

Thoroughbreds chairman Craig Davison, one of three men spearheading a Brisbane expansion bid, has pledged to recruit marquee playing and coaching talent should it win an NRL licence for 2013.

Davison has a good relationship with Bennett forged through the Thoroughbred group which supports the Broncos.

Bennett, Craig Bellamy and Mal Meninga head the consortium’s coaching wish list.
