“After I was taking part in for the Broncos if we did not make the grand last … we have been failures. They’ve been bumming alongside for 12 years and have not accomplished a factor.
“I simply assume they should flip issues round dramatically and whether or not Seibold can do it with the listing he has received I’m not certain.”
Whereas disenchanted with the selection, Lazarus hoped Seibold got here on board as Broncos coach a 12 months early in 2019 after describing Bennett’s relationship with Brisbane chief govt Paul White as “untenable”.
Bennett and White reportedly fell out in the course of the season after the muse Broncos mentor publicly slammed the NRL membership’s dealing with of the teaching transition following months of hypothesis about his future.
Their relationship wasn’t helped when the Broncos board knocked again Bennett’s request to teach for yet one more season in 2020.

“I feel you will see each camps are busily making an attempt to come back to some kind of association that can see Wayne at Souths and Anthony on the Broncos subsequent 12 months.”
It pains him to say it, however Lazarus additionally feels fellow Brisbane nice Walters shall be reluctant to use for the Broncos teaching job once more after lacking out to Seibold.
“He can be disenchanted with the entire course of,” Lazarus stated. “Wayne (Bennett) has by no means endorsed him.
“Ex-Broncos gamers at massive have stated Kevvie is the person for the job however nobody appeared to pay attention within the Broncos hierarchy.
“Anthony seems to have all the correct credentials however the Broncos have had somebody sitting in their very own yard in Kevin and have not actually given him the time of day, which could be very disappointing.”
Lazarus could not perceive why the Broncos appeared decided to signal Seibold as soon as they missed out on Melbourne mentor Craig Bellamy in June, overlooking Brisbane favorite son Walters.
“My frustration over all this is the reason Kevin Walters has by no means been talked about (as coach) – he misplaced loads of blood, sweat and tears for this membership,” he stated.
“He is been mentored by one of the best, he has had teaching success. I feel he can be superb for the Broncos however it appeared as soon as they missed out on Craig Bellamy they have been going for Anthony Seibold.
“I hope it isn’t (Walters’ final probability to teach Broncos) as a result of I feel he would assist.
“Brisbane have been very fortunate to get into the eight this 12 months. If Canberra or Wests Tigers did not stumble, Brisbane have been going to be very near lacking the eight.
“I do know Kevin has the Broncos’ DNA in him. I believed he can be a much better possibility.”
