Is this confirmation (albeit informal) from Jazz that he will be taking up his player option?
And having a great party in the process.

Don't want to read to much I to what jazz is saying but it doesn't give me confidence if he's just one of the boys.

CG said on the radio Webster won't have anything to do with the club until his contract at the Panthers is up.
Pretty simple really, what business anywhere in the world allows a competitor to make calls on their staffing?

Please. Leave out the fantasy machinations.

Imagine if u were dumb enough to let Webster make calls in your organization before he is accountable and contracted.

Imagine if such a figure back flips on coming like Payten was no use to the Warriors strategic planning.


You would pretty much go down in NRL history as the dumbest corporate organization ever in the world of professional business.

If they are not consulting Webster they are going to be behind the 8 ball. He may not be involved with current selections but anything involving staffing for next season he should be asked about. Otherwise they would be re-signing current players or signing players the new coach doesn't want.

It happens at other clubs. The incoming coach is heavily involved in recruitment or having meetings with their new club in preparation for their arrival.

Barrett was signing players and organising things for the Bulldogs before he arrived. There have been other reports as well of coaches saying they are busy with their day job and night times spent having meetings with the new club in preparation or the next season. They often sign a few of the younger players from their current club.

Sport is different to other businesses. Look at the Manly jersey issue last week. Companies around the world change their logos for the month. In normal day to day businesses if you refuse to turn up for work you get fired. Sports players can push the boundaries a bit there we saw that during the pandemic.

Maybe so, but Jones is doing a great job of stabilizing the club in the interim, so he should stay, which leaves Morgan, no rush to shift him on while Webster is not in situ.

As for recruiting....the players in bound, are all better than what we have so....

What are we talking about here? There is only two spots on the roster why does the club need to consult with him when we are almost at capacity.

I think the club is in a better position to make calls on when gets cut from our squad this year and can recommend Nov 1 who they would want to hold onto. November 1 is where the recruitment planning should begin anyways.

All I would ask Webster to do is make your hit list for November 1, but in all honesty there won't be a whole lot of movement for 2024.

I would recommend B Afoa and J Tavaga are important to the club and need to be retained.

B M Masili is gone, the rest need to earn thier contracts.

A Pene, B Sironen, E Kosi, M Montoya, A Pompey, S Johnson.

Kosi needs to earn a contract? Heyzeuss he scores a brilliant hat trick against Mebourne and he has to earn his contract?

Let's be honest Bruce any Winger would of taken those meat pies last Friday, look he has come back brilliantly but he should have to play to earn a contract yes, he's a winger!

I do believe he's a great depth signing and is still developing so yup the club needs to keep him hungry and earn his spot.

I think it would be silly if the Warriors aren't asking for Websters opinions. The Panthers and Warriors have probably the least amount of conflict of interest possible (easily 1st vs potentially last..).

He will 100% be having some sort of input into the club, we just don't know the level. Surely recruitment for 2023 and staffing of the coaching set up at very least. This would have already been discussed during the hiring period.

Agree, he still had to finish them. He deserve an immediate contract. To come back like he has shows some desire and ticker.
Those tries were carbon copies, they were obviously planned, as was the looping pass from Chanel Harris-Tavita. He needed speed and strength to make the line.
Hypothetically if the club gave him the opportunity to seek a contract elsewhere he would be gone tomorrow.

And he'd learned. Was going at full pace when he got the ball so had figured out where he needed to be positioned if there was an opportunity.

Was sort of the same stuff that happens to us with our compressed defence only the other way round.

Are there any fans in the NRL who can talk about pudding like it's cheesecake as much as Warriors fans?

Kosi scores a Maumalo special and we should be handing him a contract, no questions asked? Goldfish memory much?

One of the biggest failings over the years for the Warriors has been rewarding players for one off or limited output as opposed to demanding higher levels of consistency before being given the pot of gold. Paying on potential doesn't work, especially when that potential isn't overly high to begin with.

Scoring a walkover hat trick against a reserve grade Storm backline doesn't entitle anyone to anything.
