Next Wednesday the Warriors will be having their annual members forum. This is a chance for members to hear about the state of the club and its future direction. Also an opportunity to ask questions of the CEO and coaches.

I'll be there and will try my best to record some audio for members who cant make it.

I implore all members who are able to attend the forum to go along and become involved. This is your best ever chance of making a difference at the club and voicing your opinion to those have the real push at the Warriors...

Im sure mt.wellington mt.wellington will be kind enough to do an audio recording of the event like he has in the past 2 years for those that miss it. Been quite an informative session in the past and kudos to the club for doing this.

I can't make it up to Auckland for this. The last Couple of years I have listened to the recording that Mt Wellington has put up.
I asked Jim Doyle about a month ago if he could get his multi media team to stream the forum so that out of town members and Aussie based members could listen in. Pleased to see that he has arranged this .
I have emailed the club with a few questions
· Club Culture – there have been stories floating around social media for quite some time about a relaxed unprofessional attitude by players towards training , nutrition etc. Then at the weekend there was an interview that Sam Tomkins did with the NZ herald about how he couldn’t believe the unprofessional approach by many players when he arrived at the club, https://www.nzherald.co.nz/league/news/article.cfm?c_id=79&objectid=11494082 . As a member I find this very alarming and hope it has been rectified.

· Mount Smart Stadium – The council has said that one of the reasons the Warriors need to move is because the stadium is not up to standard. What improvements need to be made to Mt Smart to bring it up to NRL standard and does the club have a costing on those improvements.

· Stadium move – Great news that you managed to negotiate a delay in the final decision on this matter earlier in the year, however it once again is concerning to read reports in the press that the Auckland council is going ahead with the $27m spend on Albany anyway. What is the current state of play with the Stadium reshuffle.

· Club colours – the great jersey debate ! I appreciate that the Warriors are the number 1 jersey seller in the NRL and that we have no more jerseys than any other club, however a common complaint from supporters is when you look at the grand stands at Mt Smart you see a rainbow of coloured Warriors jerseys. Other clubs like St George stick with their red and white, Roosters Red , white and blue etc. It would be great if the club stuck with some base colours then adapted the designs for the special issue jerseys.

Hopefully some of the above will be answered at the forum.

Mt. Wellington would you ask what are the specific recruitment policy changes they have made, how will they affect the u20's squad and what role does Doyle see the Warriors playing within the NZ rugby league community. If you have time that would be great, thank you.

That was very informative I must say.

Awesome to see the club has a clear direction in which they want to go and what they want to achieve

Manu, Wiki, Luck, Mannering, Jones as players we can base our virtues around, brilliant.

Loved the member mentioning Roger Tuivasa-Sheck, Luke and Marty Taupau coming here.. that was classic!

They do a good job with these, last year’s audio made even Scurrah sounded quite sensible.

Thanks to the man mt.wellington mt.wellington for putting it up.

Didn’t occur to me before time, but it would have been good to know what they are doing with Dean Bells old job, is Cappy the recruitment boss going forward?

Doyle is a very impressive individual, unfortunately for him, all the good stuff he talked about in the first section can only come about by winning.

And becoming a winner will still be difficult as the focus shifts to ‘recruit more veterans’ I just find it hard to see these veterans leaving aus unless they have no other options because they are battlers (Wright) or we over pay them. Neither is ideal, but a top 25 with half of them rookies isn’t working either.

Cappy had at least one good answer to the Lolohea v Townsend question, if chad has to play, at least take the ball out of his hands so there is less opportunity for him to f—k it up.

Happy sure put some things to rest for me by saying he will always pick the team he thinks can win and would not promote young players into a losing team as it would destroy them, I agree.
Disappointed that no one asked him about his bench selections during the games.

We seem to be in a good place in terms of vision for the future and identifying the issues we need to solve. My concern lies with how well we are able to implement.
