The Brisbane Broncos have bounced back with a big win against a the struggling Rabbitohs. Once again, a win against a struggling team means nothing. But the Broncos went from world-beaters to losing games left, right and centre (by often embarrassing scorelines).
I believe that this is because of a couple of close losses when the Broncos were flying high. I believe that they just lost against the Cowboys followed by the Sharks. This must have had a huge impact on their confidence. If, while at their best and everything was going well, they couldn’t beat the best.
So there systems weren’t working against the best teams, so they lose faith or confidence in what they are doing. And when you are expected to go one better than last year, you need your confidence. So now the losses have piled up and we are left wondering if they will even be contenders come finals time?
