Block Bennett's Broncos move: Meninga

  Block Bennett's Broncos move: Meninga Brisbane should have a "clean break" and block Wayne Bennett's mooted bid to become the NRL club's head of football, Mal Meninga says.The Queensland great says the next Broncos coach should be allowed to to "do his own thing", something he can't see happening with Bennett watching over him.

The South Sydney hooker led a crushing performance in the middle of the field to turn the Roosters defence inside-out, with the Bunnies sealing a 26-14 win over their fierce rivals. "Cooky was great and I thought he was pretty good last week as well," Seibold said after Thursday's game.

Their form may been comical in 2017, it's anything but, to start that to start this year.

Souths will drop to third spot if Melbourne Storm beat Cronulla on Sunday but Seibold was bullish about both his side’s performance and their prospects heading into September after the loss at ANZ Stadium.

“I thought they struggled to handle us through the middle of the park but we didn’t build enough pressure,” Seibold declared.

“If we get an opportunity to play them again (in the NRL finals) we’ll build some pressure and we’ll see if they can handle us.”

The Bunnies lost full-back Alex Johnston in the opening minute to a hamstring injury, forcing back-rower Tyrell Fuimaino to mark Latrell Mitchell at centre as part of a reshuffle.

Seibold refused to blame Johnston’s departure or last week’s 30-20 victory over Storm for the loss to the Roosters.

Coach Anthony Seibold says curbing Latrell Mitchell's influence is vital to South Sydney 's hopes of beating the in-form Sydney Roosters at ANZ Stadium.

“It was obviously really challenging (losing Johnston) but I was really proud of our group tonight, I thought the effort, our intent and our performance were outstanding,” he said.

“There was a little bit of chaos there at the start of the game but we handled it.”

He fired when asked if his men were flat after toppling the Storm: “No way in the world did it have any impact on our game tonight.

“I mean the Roosters have won what, 10 of their last 11 games, and we really tested them and I think they struggled to handle us when we went through the middle of the park with them.

“I think everyone saw the game was there in the balance right at the end and we had our chances but (the loss) has nothing to do with what we did against the Storm.”

South Sydney coach Anthony Seibold has delivered a stern warning to his side that they are at risk of having a cricket score put on them by Melbourne in next week's top-of-the-table NRL blockbuster.

Anthony Seibold says he found the sacking of Anthony Griffin by the "It's a strange week in the coaching game, there's no doubt about that," Seibold said on Thursday. ANZ Stadium will host Friday night's blockbuster between the Rabbitohs and Sydney Roosters , with Souths motivated to

Rooster coach Trent Robinson rejected suggestions the Roosters are premiership favourites after the win but conceded his men are heading in the right direction ahead of the finals.

“We’re where we want to be,” Robinson said.

“We probably would have liked to be there a little bit earlier in the season but we’re where we want to be now and we’re getting better.”

Meanwhile, Seibold ruled Johnston out of Thursday’s clash against the Brisbane Broncos and revealed Greg Inglis could miss another week before making his return from a thumb injury.

“It’s his hamstring so until he gets a scan we’ve got no idea how bad it is,” the coach said.

“He’s got a history of hamstring injuries so we just need to make sure that we get it scanned tomorrow morning and get assessed by our medical staff.

“Obviously he’s not going to be right for next week, you don’t come off the field in the first minute and turn around and play six days later.”
