A CORONER has found the Brisbane Broncos should have done more to teach Francis Molo how to avoid shoulder charging opponents after causing the death of James Ackerman in a 2015 Queensland Cup match.

Ackerman was shoulder charged in the opening four minutes by Molo at Bishop Park, and died two days later in hospital, but the Broncos contracted player went on to twice repeat the illegal tackle on his return from suspension. Coroner John Lock said Molo made no attempt to apply a “legitimate” tackle on the 25-year-old prop and the force of the shoulder charge, which did not hit the head or neck, was such that it caused death.

He found the force of the contact was to the chest and upper body of Ackerman but the impact caused forceful movement to the head of the Sunshine Coast prop and ruptured an artery in his neck.

Broncos CEO Hits Back At Critics After Signing Controversial Prop Matt Lodge - Triple M

Brisbane Broncos CEO Paul White has hit back at critics after signing controversial prop Matt Lodge. 

White told the club's website, Lodge is a far more responsible having learned from his mistakes and deserves a second chance.   

“We believe after much consideration that he has worked back to a place where he now deserves a second chance,” White said.

“He has been alcohol-free for more than two years and is doing regular work with young men on the dangers of alcohol, and taking personal responsibility for their actions.

“Matt trained with the Club all throughout this year and played strongly for feeder club Redcliffe, and we have supported him in both his on-field endeavours and his personal development.

“We believe he is now on the right path and a far more mature and responsible person who has learned from his mistakes, and we will continue to support him on that journey.”

Brisbane Broncos legend Steve Renouf insists Kevin Walters’ return as an assistant coach will benefit both that club and the Queensland Maroons.

Walters was back at Broncos training last week to start his third stint as an assistant to Wayne Bennett - a move that has the support of the Queensland Rugby League. 

They have a history of success together that started when Bennett brought Walters to the Broncos from Canberra as a player in 1990.

They won five premierships together as coach and player at Brisbane while Bennett also won five of his seven series as coach of the Maroons. Walters was in the victorious 1998 Queensland outfit.

It was Bennett who first appointed Walters as an assistant coach at Brisbane, and subsequently sacked him in 2005....

ANTHONY Milford's $1 million showdown with former halves partner Ben Hunt is in jeopardy with the Broncos sensation in danger of missing the start of Brisbane's premiership campaign.

Milford's scrumbase clash with St George Illawarra's big-money recruit Hunt is being billed as a major attraction when the Broncos and Dragons officially launch the 2018 NRL season next March.

But Broncos coach Wayne Bennett admits there is no guarantee Milford will confront former Brisbane halfback Hunt as the star pivot takes formative steps in his recovery from a shoulder reconstruction.
