For decades the Brisbane Broncos have been one of the games glamour clubs. The only NRL team to be listed on the ASX, the club has traditionally attracted some of the brightest stars in the game and has historically been the pride of Queensland. But, following their 58-0 annihilation at the hands of the Parramatta Eels in the 2019 finals series, that history is rapidly feeling ancient.
2020 was the Broncos worst year on record claiming the first wooden spoon since their 1988 inception. Prior to 2020, the Broncos had only missed the finals twice in the club’s history – 2010 and 2013. The Brisbane Broncos have an incredible win percentage of over 60%, they are second only to the Melbourne Storm in terms of their win/loss ratio, but it’s a ratio that has been quickly deteriorating for the Red Hill based club.
2021 Brisbane Broncos Preview
It’s been a baptism of fire for new coach Kevin Walters. Despite a number of infamous impassioned pre-match and half-time speeches his troops simply have not performed throughout the season. There have been some positive glimpses that suggest the club is moving further away from the wretched lows of 2020 and most of that upside is in the form of youth.
Whilst a slew of old characters such as Karmichael Hunt, Albert Kelly, David Mead and Ben Teo have come back into the fold over the past 12 months, it’s been the new crop of players such as Tesi Niu, Herbie Farnworth, TC Robatti and the barnstorming NSW Origin representative Payne Hass who have helped drive a slow resurgence.
The goal for the Broncos for the remainder of the 2021 season is to instil pride back in the jersey, continue to fight in their performances – such as their round 19 challenge of heavyweights Penrith – and ultimately stake a claim for their jersey into the new season. The fans haven’t gone away and they will be watching as closely as Kevin Walters will be as the season reaches its crescendo.
Brisbane Broncos fixtures and TV broadcast guide
Fortunately, there are several options for watching the Brisbane Broncos live in Australia, including the Nine Network, Foxtel, Foxtel from Telstra and Kayo Sports. Network Nine is the official NRL free to air broadcaster and will show a select number of Brisbane Broncos’ matches live during the 2021 Premiership season across channel Nine and 9Now. Nine’s TV coverage is headed by Erin Moran, alongside a commentary team made up of Andrew Johns, Billy Slater and James Bracey. Nine also offers live streaming options during the 2021 NRL season with the 9Now app, but these are limited to the games they broadcast and do not offer full match replays.
For comparison and as shown in the TV schedule below, Foxtel, Foxtel from Telstra, and Kayo Sports will televise all 25 rounds of Brisbane Broncos matches during the 2021 Premiership season. That’s every Brisbane Broncos game in every scheduled round shown live with no ad-breaks during play, on the dedicated Fox League channel.
As well as these live matches and the option to watch replays at a later time, Foxtel, Foxtel from Telstra and Kayo Sports will also have a wide range of NRL programming that includes NRL Tonight, The Big League Wrap and the Late Show with Matty Johns. There are lots of new faces in the studio this season as every live game will be fronted by Yvonne Sampson, Lara Pitt and Jess Yates, as they step up from smaller league shows. Post-match analysis has also been freshened up and now includes a former NRL giant in the shape of Cooper Cronk.
