Astonishing claim over Broncos' pub visit
The backlash to the Broncos' thumping finals loss to the Eels has taken a shocking twist with a fresh report over a pre-final pub visit.
The backlash to the Broncos' thumping finals loss to the Eels has taken an astonishing twist with a fresh report claiming a host of the side's biggest names spent the night before out until late at a Sydney hotel. According to a foxsports.com.au report , eyewitnesses have confirmed Matt Gillett, Andrew McCullough, Payne Haas, David Fifita, Corey Oates and Anthony Milford were all at Harpoon Harry's hotel near Sydney's Oxford Street until late on Saturday night. The report claims the players congregated in the pub's pokies room, where Fifita stayed playing the machines alone, after the rest of his teammates left the venue at around 11pm. The players were not drinking alcohol, according to the report, however it is unlikely spending the evening before a final sitting in a Sydney pub would be considered satisfactory preparation by the club's management or its passionate fanbase. Less than 24 hours after their visit to Harpoon Harry's, the Broncos were handed a 58-0 thrashing by the Eels, the biggest losing margin in any final since 1908. More to follow..
