Warriors coach Andrew McFadden has described the action of three players as unacceptable after they attended a concert in Auckland two nights before the NRL side were thumped by West Tigers. Centres Konrad Hurrell and Dominique Peyroux, and injured winger Manu Vatuvei went on stage with American R&B performer Ginuwine last Friday and later posted about it on social media. Less that 48 hours later, the Warriors, with Hurrell and Peyroux in their side, were mauled 50-16 by the Tigers in Sydney.
McFadden says he was extremely disappointed when he heard about the night out and the matter had been dealt with internally. I think that level of professionalism is unacceptable," he said."We had an early flight the next day and one of things we preach in terms of our preparation is that we make sure we get enough sleep and hydration, and we eat properly.
