THURSDAY JUNE 11 2020 SPORT 35 V1 - NTNE01Z01MA No room for nice guys, leaders told PETER BADEL BRISBANE coach Anthony Seibold has turned up the heat on his leadership group, challenging the likes of Pat Carrigan and Brodie Croft to be more vocal and confront their peers to rebuild the Broncos season. Broncos skipper Alex Glenn put the clubs culture under the microscope ahead of tonights clash against Manly when he revealed Brisbane players lacked honesty and were too scared to offend each other. Seibold agrees with Glenns stinging appraisal and has urged his seven-man leadership group comprising Carrigan, Croft, Glenn, Darius Boyd, Matt Lodge, Payne Haas and Tevita Pangai Jr to deliver some home truths. With young men and young people, having a real tough conversation with their peers is something to work on, Seibold said. We dont have a lot of experience in our group, so Ive been working on it with the leadership group. I felt as though we were getting better in that area. Broncos co-captain Croft pledged to step up as a leader. We can build on leadership and hold each other accountable and picking up people on areas of the game they need to fix, he said. Brisbane halfback Brodie Croft Glory of title the reward New boy Teo to teach teammates all about sacrifice PETER BADEL BRONCOS bolter Ben Teo says winning an NRL premiership remains the greatest achievement of his remarkable career, and has revealed his mission to help break Brisbanes 14-year title drought. In his only interview ahead of his shock return to rugby league against Manly tonight, Teo pledged not to let the Broncos down and wants Brisbanes young guns to understand the sacrifices required to win an NRL title. Teo will play his first NRL game in 2076 days at Central Coast Stadium almost six years after he quit rugby league and defected to European rugby after playing a key role in Souths 2014 premiership triumph. Teo and Darius Boyd are the only current Broncos with premiership-winning experience. The 33-year-old Teo has played Origin football, succeeded in two football codes and represented England in rugby at Twickenham but he says nothing will ever match the joy of an NRL crown. Ahead of tonights clash against the Sea Eagles, Teo wants to bring that joy to Red Hill for the first time since 2006, and indoctrinate Broncos players on what it takes to be a winner. To be honest, there is unfinished business for me at the Broncos I want to win a premiership for the club, he said. Its a dream to play Origin and Test footy and Test rugby, but winning a premiership is the most special thing. The pre-season, the trial games every player has their personal highs and lows. You have fights at training. There are confrontations. Its the journey that makes you a family and when you get to the summit, when you win that premiership, you look back and say, Wow, that was all worth it. Teos resurrection at the Broncos has been as surprising as it is meteoric. A week ago, the former Queensland Origin hit man was contracted to the Japanese Sunwolves and training in isolation following the COVID-enforced suspension of the Super Rugby competition. But the demise of the Sunwolves cleared the path for Teo to ink a fivemonth, $100,000 deal with the Broncos.Broncos forward Ben Te'o at training yesterday Picture: AAP IMAGE Conditions apply* *Limit one redemption per eligible member.
