The 2014 Brisbane Broncos season was the 27th in the club's history. Coached by Anthony Griffin and co-captained by Justin Hodges and Corey Parker, they competed in the NRL's 2014 Telstra Premiership, finishing the regular season eighth (out of sixteen) to make it into the finals. The Broncos were then knocked out of contention in the first game of the finals against the North Queensland Cowboys.

Season summary[edit]

On 10 January, Sam Thaiday announced he was standing down from the Broncos captaincy.[1] Thaiday had captained the Broncos since 2012 when he took over the captaincy from the retired Darren Lockyer. Justin Hodges and Corey Parker were named the club's new co-captains.[2]

On 21 July, Coach Anthony Griffin was informed his services would not be required in 2015.[3] Griffin agreed to see out the remainder of the 2014 season. When asked by the media what he said to the players, Griffin said "I told them I got the arse". At the time of his sacking Griffin had a coaching record of 51 wins from 93 games.

Later the same day, it was announced that Wayne Bennett had signed a three-year deal to coach the Broncos from 2015.[4] Bennett is the inaugural coach of the Broncos having coached them from 1988 to 2008.
