Warriors Junior Program Reform

Theres going to be a huge restructure next season. Sounds like the Warriors will have a house in Redcliffe where a handful of juniors will be based while the best of them will join our top 30. Other than that we will no longer have a junior system at the club with the Harold Matthews and Jersey Flegg teams wound down in favour of Redcliffe and Auckland Fox Memorial. A lot of the junior players that are signed up now will no longer be signed to the club.

That also means a lot of the training staff from those grades will lose their jobs and I'm hearing they are cutting the recruitment department to just Sully...

sully is the only recruitment guy that we've had that actually knows what he's looking at,and he's not biased..our other so called fkn talent scouts seem to think all the talented players came from sth auckiand ffs
No. Thats just what racist people like you think when in fact most players come from West Auckland. But I know what you mean. Too many Polynesians right...
 
Apart from 2002 - 2003 , The best time I feel we've had is the period early in the u20s with the Warriors teams were dominating the comp - felt like we'd unearth quality players each year and were building well to something (we all know how it played out)...

I miss those days of feeling at least alittle bit of hope for the club.
