Renouf says Bennett is under

Former Brisbane Broncos star Steve Renouf believes his past coach is under pressure after Bennett sacked Kevin Walters, Gary Belcher and Glenn Lazarus on Friday.

Bennett, who is with the Australian team at the moment in preparation for the first Tri-Nations game against New Zealand on Saturday Night has been under criticism from certain parts of the Rugby League community after Brisbane?s poor end to the 2005 Season.

Bennett has also come under some scrutiny for some for some of the selections in the Australian team for the Tri-Nations.

Renouf told The Australian today that he thinks Bennett is under the pump and although he thought things needed to be changed he didn?t expect sackings of this nature.

Next year looks like it?ll be a make or break year for Bennett who as recently as midway through the season was thought to be the best coach in the competition.

Yesterday, the Broncos announced the signing of Michael Ennis who left the Dragons last week.
