It is Over at Brisbane Broncos: Wayne Bennett Contract Terminated With Immediate Effect

The termination of Wayne Bennett’s contract came after a week of intense scrutiny by the NRL club, Brisbane Broncos. The 68 year old super coach is said to have signed a 4-year deal to coach the South Sydney Rabbitohs starting 2020. 

The South Sydney current coach Anthony Seibold signed to start coaching the Brisbane Broncos in the same year, 2020 and marked to be a swap of some sort. However, the anticipated contracts of both Wayne Bennett and Anthony Seibold to start in 2020 may have to take effect sooner than expected.

It appeared that Bennett’s termination by the Broncos happened abruptly. The club release a statement on its website thanking veteran coach for his 

"contribution to the club and wish him all the best for the future".  Brisbane Broncos website

Meanwhile, the NRL clubs Brisbane Broncos and South Sydney will release the names of the clubs new coaches in the coming weeks, hopefully before the preseason training kicks off. It is highly likely that a swap of coaches will happen. Wayne goes south to Sydney. Anthony heads up the ally to Brisbane.
