In this week’s ‘Pearl’s Preview Pod’ NRL.com expert Steve Renouf insists the Brisbane Broncos are officially in crisis mode after four consecutive losses.
Renouf reflects on his own career and reveals how former club director Paul ‘Porky’ Morgan would speak to the players at a restaurant called Fiascos after three consecutive losses, which occurred rarely
“It is definitely a crisis situation. We were in crisis [in the 1990s] when we lost three in a row,” Renouf said.
“That is when we would have Porky Morgan come and have a chat to us, so we knew we were in crisis then.”
In his NRL.com column last week Renouf said the Broncos were like a fine watch that was out of sync and needed tuning.
He casts his eye over what is wrong with the Broncos and what needs fixing. He said the Broncos appeared “rudderless” but has still backed them to get a win against the Sharks on Saturday night.
Renouf has tipped the Eels to back up their stunning 51-16 win over the Tigers with another victory on the road against the Knights.
He analyses the play of star Eels centre Michael Jennings and how he has turned back the clock in the twilight of his career.
Renouf has also tipped the Bulldogs to break through for a win over the Cowboys at ANZ Stadium after being impressed with their recent grit and determination.
