Outgoing Broncos half Tyson Gamble says Adam Reynolds is Brisbane brain and ‘go-to man’ – NOT coach Kevin Walters: ‘If you have a question, go to him’

  • Broncos five-eighth Tyson Gamble, 26, had a public dig with coach Kevin Walters
  • Explained in a recent podcast halfback Adam Reynolds runs the show on Red Hill
  • Gamble will be with Knights in 2023, comments went down like a ‘lead balloon’

Outgoing Broncos playmaker Tyson Gamble has fired a shot at coach Kevin Walters, declaring that halfback Adam Reynolds is the club’s go-to man.

Gamble, 26, will leave Red Hill at the end of the season to join the Knights, and his blunt assessment of Walters’ influence has reportedly “gone down like a lead balloon.”

Speaking on the Marshie’s Corner podcast, Gamble revealed Reynolds is the true ‘mastermind’ of Brisbane’s attack and whom players rely on for advice.

Gamble pointed out that club legend Walters was thrilled, but hinted that Reynolds is the man who runs the show in Brisbane.

“Kev is the coach, but Reyno is the go-to guy for everyone. If you have a question about the team or football, go to him,” Gamble said.

“It’s not a knock on Kev, but ‘Reyno’ has been around for so long.

“Kevvie really understands footy and he’s a good guy to get the team going, but the modern age is so different from the way Kevvie played footy.

“There are some similarities with how you should be with attitude and stuff, but right now Reyno is the mastermind behind our attack.”

Club insiders were not happy with the podcast comments, according to David Riccio of the Daily Telegraph.

“They went down like a lead balloon,” he said on Triple M.

Walters took over at Red Hill in 2021, and while some signs have been encouraging this season, a likely 9th place finish this year is unacceptable in the eyes of many

“This is the last round of the season for them if they can’t make it to the finals and one of their key playmakers is commenting that Kevin Walters is not the mastermind.

“They’re amazing comments to make and it’s gone down like a lead balloon.”

Gamble has played in just eight NRL games this season, but Walters has chosen him over young gun Ezra Mam for Saturday’s crucial game against the Dragons on Saturday.

Brisbane should win comfortably and hope the Wests Tigers, who are likely to make wooden spoonbills, do them a monumental favor and give Canberra a helping hand at Leichhardt Oval on Sunday to finish in the top eight.

Walters’ men have fallen off a cliff in recent weeks as they were in the top four on lap 19.

The final two rounds have seen them hammered 60-12 by the Storm and 53-6 by the Eels – both on home soil at Suncorp Stadium.
