Play­ers back rookie coach

Townsville Bulletin - - Sport -

IN a wel­come boost for An­thony Grif­fin, Bron­cos boss Paul White claims Bris­bane’s drought­break­ing win in Can­berra was a player show of sup­port for the in­cum­bent coach. Asked about the play­ers’ feed­back on Grif­fin, White said: ‘‘ I thought they gave plenty of feed­back on Fri­day night ( beat­ing Can­berra 20-4). To go some­where where we had not won in six years, to lose a player in the warm-up then tough out a win like that . . . that was the feed­back ( from play­ers) I was look­ing for.’’ But White – and for that mat­ter Grif­fin – did not have to be told they could not af­ford to re­lax to­mor­row night against a pumped-up Ti­tans.
