Three reasons Wayne Bennett didn’t go out “on his terms”

Mark Allen has taken issue with one of Wayne Bennett’s claims.

The veteran Broncos coach was finally sacked on Sunday, allowing the much-publicised job swap with Anthony Seibold to take effect.

At his press conference on Tuesday, Bennett claimed he went to the Rabbitohs “on his terms”.

But the Macquarie Sports Radio Drive host said he has to call Bennett out on that claim, for three reasons:

  1. He didn’t get the one-year extension he was looking for to coach in 2020.
  2. He didn’t get to coach out next year at the Broncos.
  3. He won’t be collecting a huge payout for being sacked.

“Is he playing us for fools? Does he not think we’ll notice this stuff?” Mark said.
