    STEPHEN Kearney is expected to replace Andrew McFadden as coach of the Warriors.

    McFadden could be axed as early tomorrow following the Warriors’ lacklustre season where they failed to qualify the top eight for the second consecutive years under his watch……



  • Could be where Kidwell is headed.



  • Haha the Warriors are forever hunting for excuses for their constant ineptitude. They need to be pointing the finger at their perpetually underperforming playing roster not the coach.
    Wonder who they will blame now that the “cuzzy bro’s” within their laughable club have got a fellow “cuzzy bro” kindred spirit to guide them. Sweet as!
    Kearney is a pretty poor coach, they will be looking for yet another scapegoat after he is sacked in 2 years or so.

    Warriors had a top 4 quality roster this year and they absolutely sucked. Kearney ain’t gonna change anything.



  • I agree with the sacking part, but not the hiring Kearney part.



  • Kearney has served a good apprenticeship with 1 false start… He deserves a go and might get more out of them being a local legend?

    He will need to ensure he has the right coaches around him, but working under Wayne should’ve shown him how to build a good structure.



  • With Kieran Foran joining them next year, they must be odds on to win the comp…watch them shorten on 2017 betting… :roll

    😆 😆 😆 It will be his mate doing the betting



  • Kearney has been coaching some of the squad at the international level since 2008 and doing alright so it probably isn’t the worse choice they could’ve made. McFadden has never been able to get anything out of that squad. While it’s true that the players have their issues I think it had become clear that McFadden was not the one who was going to be turning it around. He’d tried the firm hand with basically sacking players (Hurrell) and playing talented players in reggies (Matulino, Lolohea) and it did not improve their performance. The man was fresh out of tricks and nothing was going to change next season.

    Im not going to handle listening to Kearney in interviews again trying to sound like Craig Bellamy. It was embarrassing how he trid to talk like Bellamy last time he was coach.

    He has upgraded to Wayne these days!



  • It took a long time for the first coach to be dumped this year.



  • Kearney might be the only bloke who can get consistency out of the NZ boys.
