Sam's Stunning Selfless Act

IT is the stunningly selfless act that underpins Sam’s Thaiday commitment to the team which made the toughest of decisions easier for Wayne Bennett.

Bennett has revealed it was actually Thaiday who suggested he should be the Broncos’ weapon of choice off the bench in tonight’s season opener against the Eels in Sydney.

Most players of such international standing would feel slighted by suggestions they should be part of an NRL interchange list.

But with the Broncos chock full of Test players in their forward pack, and new interchange rules coming into existence, Thaiday realised the value of his impact and experience on the bench.

He will enter the fray after 20 minutes and play out the rest of the game.

“It wasn’t hard - Sam volunteered,” said Bennett.

“He realised it was the best thing he could do for us was to come off the bench because of the new interchange rules.

“I was more than happy with that.

“I am very pleased with what we have done, and I was pleased to have his co-operation.”

Bennett has warned that there may be some patience needed with centre James Roberts in his debut for the club.

Anthony Milford was in a similar position last year, starting the season quietly before being the best player in the NRL grand final.

“We all want it to happen straight away, but if it doesn’t it is not an issue,” said Bennett.

“No-one is saying it can’t happen, but we will be patient.

“We know we have a quality player here and there is no problems from our point of view with the way he trains, so it is just a matter of when.”
