Bren­nan likes old way

The Gold Coast Bulletin - - SPORT | RUGBY LEAGUE - – CON­NOR O’BRIEN

GOLD Coast Ti­tans coach Garth Bren­nan has ad­mit­ted tak­ing a State of Ori­gin game to South Aus­tralia is not his per­sonal pref­er­ence.

Bren­nan is a tra­di­tion­al­ist but said he could see why the NRL had made ar­range­ments to play an Ori­gin block­buster at the Ade­laide Oval in 2020. Perth will also host a match next year.

“I am prob­a­bly a bit of an old per­son that be­lieves in that it’s Queens­land and NSW,” Bren­nan said.

“But I un­der­stand that it’s about the growth in the game so if the NRL is con­sid­er­ing ex­pand­ing, then I think we need to take those games down to those ar­eas.

“But per­son­ally I like the NSW-Queens­land con­cept be­ing played in those two states.”

Bren­nan, who is in his first sea­son at the Gold Coast, con­firmed he viewed the State of Ori­gin se­ries as “the pin­na­cle” of rugby league.
