Brisbane coach Wayne Bennett has jumped to the defence of under-fire prop Adam Blair, despite him copping his second NRL suspension in as many games.

Blair will miss Saturday's clash with Manly after receiving a one-game ban for a chicken wing tackle on Broncos teammate Sam Thaiday during last weekend's Anzac Test.

Broncos legend Gorden Tallis labelled Blair one of the dirtiest players in the game earlier in the week but Bennett says the Kiwi international has "got no problems with this coach."
