Kevvie: Why I'm leaving the Broncos
Queensland Maroons coach Kevin Walters explains in his own words how he's come to today's decision to step aside from his role with the Brisbane Broncos.
Yesterday I attended the launch of the 2018 Holden State of Origin Series in Melbourne.
The level of interest at the media conference reinforced how privileged I am to be the Head Coach of a Maroons team which means so much to the people of Queensland.
It also reinforced Origin’s immense standing in the game, and the importance of having a clear-minded approach to all aspects of the Queensland team’s preparations.
I felt that my direct link to the Broncos may influence the perception of my impartiality and as a result, I have made the decision to step away from the club to focus solely on our State of Origin campaign.
I wish everyone involved with the Broncos every success for the remainder of the 2018 season.
