Bennet scraps co-captains on first day at Broncos

WAYNE BENNET’S hit the ground running on his first day at the helm at the Brisbane Broncos.

The seven-time premiership-winning mentor met with Broncos staff and players on his first official day back today, six years after walking away.

The former Newcastle Coach announced he’ll be scrapping the use of co-captains next season.


Corey Parker and Justin Hodges shared the captaincy this season and Bennet admitted he had yet to decide who’ll take the solo role.

Bennet also made it clear he wanted Darius Boyd at the club, saying the troubled Newcastle star would be his first choice at fullback.
