Broncos' Favouritism Tag Worthless

AFTER nearly 30 years of coaching in the NRL, Wayne Bennett knows the value of favouritism in this competition.

Nothing.

It was a typical Bennett-like response from the coach today when he was asked how his team would deal with the tags of competition favourites before they open the season against the Eels tomorrow.

 “Are we the favourites?” Bennett asked with the trademark smirk on his face.

“That’s not going to help us one iota.”

And while there is always pressure on in round one, it isn’t necessarily on the result.

Of course everyone wants to win their first game of the year, but Bennett reminded everyone it wasn’t imperative.

The Broncos made the grand final last year after being beaten 36-6 by then-reigning premiers the Rabbitohs in round one.

And the 2016 premiers the Cowboys had a horror start to last year.

Playing well and producing something to build on is more important tomorrow night.

“Whether you win or lose in round one you want to be playing well,” said Bennett.

“That's why you play 26 rounds, because some teams take time to start playing well.

“We were one of those teams last year and so were the Cowboys - they lost their first three games.”
