Warriors will headhunt best coach
Wed, 22 Aug 2012 7:33a.m.
It’s been a disastrous year for the New Zealand Warriors and it culminated yesterday with the sacking of Brian ‘Bluey’ McClennan with two games left in the 2012 NRL season.
Warriors’ CEO Wayne Scurrah appeared on Firstline this morning and answered the hard question – ‘where to now?’
He says a number of things went wrong including a string of horrific injuries that the club could not stem. But he added that the club also got things wrong and perhaps there was too much emphasis placed on junior players.
The removal of McClennan from the coaching post was made after the board the decision and a number of factors including empty seats and a lack of confidence contributed.
And his replacement will be headhunted if need be.
“We’ll be doing everything to get the best coach we can,” says Scurrah.
“We’ll be getting the absolute best coach we can.”

Got a mate with his ear to the ground at the Warriors and he reckons it'll probably be Kearney. So I guess the only way with him in charge is down. Don't bother sending me a season ticket email, I won't even give it the privilege of being opened. What a joke.
