Wayne Bennett could sensationally return to the Brisbane Broncos to form a dream team with Queensland State of Origin coach Kevin Walters.

The Courier-Mail reports Bennett has sensationally backflipped on his decision to never return to the Broncos and is now keen to extend his coaching career once his contract at the Rabbitohs expires next season.

Yvonne Sampson confirmed on Fox League that Bennett is ready to return to the Broncos if there are changes to the board that sacked him two years ago.

“Wayne Bennett is open to moving back to the Broncos as a coaching director,” Yvonne Sampson confirmed on Fox League.

“But it comes with a couple of caveats only if there are changes to the board, who helped show him the door.”

If Bennett returns to Red Hill, he could take up a senior advisor role to support Walters, who is the favourite to replace Anthony Seibold.

  1. I posted a comment a few months ago that I thought Wayne’s heart was well and truly in Queensland, and nothing has happened since to change my mind. Any team that this ageless coaching legend is involved with usually plays Finals football. During Wayne’s second coming at the Broncos they made the Finals every season, but for some reason there were board members who wanted to get rid of him and sh!t on him in the process. Who’s laughing now eh? I think a Walters-Bennett combination would be sensational and would see the Broncos playing Finals football once again. I also think how Anthony Seibold has been treated is the most disgraceful thing that has ever happened in NRL history. The cowardly predators who attacked his credibility and his family should be named, shamed and banned from any involvement in any NRL club for life.
