Seibold won't be axed: Broncos

Broncos chief executive Paul White insisted Anthony Seibold won't be sacked in the wake of the club's humiliating sixth straight loss.

Less than 24 hours after Brisbane players shed tears after a rock bottom loss to the Warriors on the Central Coast, White told media on Sunday that Seibold will still be coaching the team for the clash against cellar-dwelling Canterbury next week.

"Today is about reaffirming my support for the coach," White said said on Sunday.

Seibold is only 18 months into a five-year deal at Red Hill with the Broncos the only team yet to win since the NRL rebooted after the COVID-19 suspension.

It included a club record 59-0 thumping at the hands of the Roosters.

The club is backing a plan for Seibold to bring an assistant to help the former Dally M Coach of the Year, which could include the likes of Queensland Origin coach Kevin Walters or sacked Warriors boss Stephen Kearney.

"I am happy with our roster but we do need to take a longer-term view of that," White said.

"There will be ups and downs. We could turn this around next week and hopefully we do, but with development of a playing squad and roster you do have ups and downs.

"In the modern game the margin between success and failure is razor thin. Our aim is to develop a system at the club where the difference between our best performance and worst performance isn’t poles apart. We are not there yet and that is what we are working to become."
