Brisbane Broncos veteran Sam Thaiday has taken a veiled swipe at his long-time coach Wayne Bennett for playing him out of position at hooker in last week’s thumping loss to St George Illawarra.
Thaiday had a forgettable night as he started for regular rake Andrew McCullough and said he was happy to go slide back into the pack and a position he “knows”.
“It’s definitely a tough position. I probably got ahead of myself playing there and actually thought I was a dummy half,” Thaiday said.
“I should have played more like a forward and made sure I got the ball to the right people at the right time.
“I am looking forward to pushing back into the forwards and doing something I actually know.”
Brisbane face rivals North Queensland in a local derby on Friday night.
