Scurrah is a skidmark...the Warriors need to fully wash the undies and get rid of him too
ATM My Top Three Warriors People I Want Gone:
Scurrah - Mr Smokescreen/Secret Spy
Glenn - Mr STFU Already, Let The People Who, Like, Know What They're Doing And Don't Have A Huge Ego Do Their Job.
Wiki - Mr Part Time Fitness What You Doin' Bo'?
Glenn's obviously the hard one to get rid of as he actually has money in the joint but I have total contempt for his reason for buying into the Warriors. I don't think Eric Watson's overly bright or personable either, but I don't think his sole reason - or main reason at any rate - was to prove anyone wrong. Okay, his main reason may have been nothing more altruistic than "how do I grow the Cullen brand?" but it's better than "I want to stick it to the NZRFU!".
Scurrah is seriously beginning to annoy me. Why are we going with a Chinese baby formula company? (Forget the arguing about breast v bottle etc...that the Herald mentioned this morning). And why does it fall on the Warriors to apparantly "grow the game" in China etc? For all the years of 7s in Hong Kong, I don't see the growth of rugby there.... Also, Does Wayne actually turn up to work and ask questions? Or does he ask the questions but when he's asked questions, does he like playing Secret Spy? It's no state secret Iro was thinking of leaving and it really doesn't make much difference to the Warriors - might upset a few people who were in his camp, but I can't see anyone walking out of the Warriors with that as their determining reason. Might be the final push, but....so why the hush, hush secrecy? As I said on the old NZWO site, I don't think he actively lies, he just gives himself wriggle room (The Shaun Metalf signing - said it wasn't something they were looking to do "at this time or in the future" when we all knew that "at this time" was the key phrase. Upset the fandom due to criminal history etc Vulcans form etc when we ending up signing him and didn't actually use him and now the BabyFern will upset some, as well, but I'm sure he'll have his reasoning.) But now, he's now going into Mick Watson dream territory - the Pasifika rugby team for Mick, for Wayne it's Chinese rugby league.
And as for Wiki, I don't want someone who comes in to help the Warriors on a part time basis (I don't particularly like it anyhow, but given the shitstorm 2012 was, I really think it's a bad idea for 2013), I'd rather the money be spent on someone in a full time position (which might very well end up being Wiki in which case my problem with him disappears).
Grump, grump... Ah, well, at least the 2013 NRL Draw should be out soon...
