League Fix: Warriors break their silence
Thu, 23 Aug 2012 7:55p.m.
It has been a huge week for rugby league and Sam Ackerman finally has time to take a breath and bring you another episode of The League Fix.
Tonight, the Warriors have just begun to pick up the pieces following the announcement they will part ways with former coach Brian McClennan.
From inside a sombre camp, the boys have broken their silence about the loss of Bluey and the temporary appointment of Tony Iro as head coach. Who feels they are partly to blame for the team’s current predicament?
And just how much confidence does Iro have that he can turn what is left of this season around? Can the Warriors avoid the wooden spoon?
Plus Sam looks at the appointment of Laurie Daley as coach of his beloved NSW Origin side, Minichiello’s not guilty verdict at the NRL judiciary and the ‘no obstruction’ call that could have cost the Tigers a golden-point game against the Bulldogs.

I supported the warriors from the beginning because I thought they would support and develop the local game.The appointment of Bluey signalled to me that at last the Warriors had realised that you cannot buy a winning team.That he inherited a team of has beens and schoolkids didnt matter because in the long term you would end up with an Auckland version of the Broncos.Please note t5hat under Super Coach Bennet the Broncos copped some fearful floggings where ordinary teams took them apart.In fact you dont have to look past Melbourne this year without their State of Origin stars getting flogged mercilessly.
So what are the Warriors,a rich man's vanity project?Who in their right mind would want the poisoned chalice of the Warriors coaching job.
It is the owners of the Warriors who have consistently failed and should go,they have had more chance than they gave Bluey and their incompetence is all too obvious.

Tim Sheens is off contract, but as much as they have cleaned out the coach, it's long overdue to clean out the playing list. Jerome Ropati is sucking in some major salary cap dollars, for not alot of return, same with Manu. Sorry guys, someone that big cannot be that gentle with the ball in hand if you want a ring at the end of September.Toyota Cup is throwing up some talent, but you just can't buy experience. Shaun Johnson is in need of some support, so it's time to spend some money on someone who can run a game( and kick the goals) Shaun Kenny Dowall wouldn't be a bad buy for the centres either.Dare I say Cooper Cronk....
