Don’t count Wayne Bennett as a Tim Simona sympathiser.

The Broncos coach came out swinging at Simona, who faces a lifetime ban from the NRL after being caught up in a betting scandal.

Simona will find out his fate at a hearing on Friday after it was alleged he had placed bets on opposition players to score tries against the Tigers last season.

Speaking to media on Wednesday, Bennett said there was no excuse for Simona’s actions.

“You got any idea how many lectures these players get?” Bennett fumed.

“Don’t make excuses for the players and don’t blame the game.”
