NOT The Footy Show Episode 280: 2023 Brisbane Broncos Roster Deep Dive

NOT The Footy Show - Episode 280 
Published January 27, 2023  

Join Robb Cox and Warrick Nicolson for Episode 280 of NOT The Footy Show as we go on a deep dive into the Brisbane Broncos' roster and recruitment for the 2023 NRL Season.

What has happened to the glamour club of Rugby League since Uncle Benny departed and just how long does Kevin Walters have left in the coaching hot-seat? 

Reece Walsh is a heck of a big name signing - just remember he's still only a kid - but the Broncos want to be an NRL powerhouse again sooner rather than later so how good do they have to be to keep Kevvy employed?

Key talking points about the Broncos in 2023 are:  
  • If Kevin Walters is not long for the coaching world - who is the coach (or player?) that Ben Ikin and Dave Donaghy have lined up to replace him? 
  • Can ARey's hamstrings hold up to the rigours of a full season - and if so is he enough to get back into the Top 8? 
  • Is Martin Taupau a good fit amongst the young Brisbane forwards? 
  • The backline is packed with tryscoring weapons so how big a year is 2023 for Ezra Mam sitting between Adam Reynolds and Reece Walsh? 
  • The Brisbane pack has a few boom youngsters in it and ready to join it - how long til we see the best of Brendan Piakura - but is he even Brisbane's best prospect? 
  • And speaking of one who might be - is Blake Mozer the saviour at hooker that Billy Walters and Cory Paix don't appear to be? 
And we give our prediction for the finishing tier Brisbane will reach in 2023.
