Oposite ends of the spectrum but going hand in hand.
I'm loving the club being in touch with the fans and embracing our heritage.
Great film up on the big screen...
And with that came the timely announcement of the club vision...
The same vision we had and lost with the resignation of Paul Cullen....to get a team of pure bred Warringtonians as an ultimate objective.

OK it's a tall ask and I don't think even Wigan have exactly managed it...but the club has said through Paul Anderson that, that is the goal.

I'd be surprised if Wigan haven't achieved that but then again, going back to the early 20th century, I suspect the majority of clubs comprised of just local talent

Strangely not. Warrington’s team in 1909 contained 3 Aussies, and at least two Welshmen.

I'm sorry, but what a load of contrived old boll0cks.

Yes, wouldn't it be lovely if every Warrington player had a WA1,2,3,4,5 postcode on their birth certificates, bit it's NEVER going to happen.
We live in a town where RL is played in schools as a second, sometimes THIRD OR FOURTH sport preference for PE teachers. In Wigan and St Helens, it's the be all and end all.
I remember talking to a lad in 2005 who attended Bridgewater High. He was mad keen on RL. One of his mates had the surname Cullen, who played for our academy. His dad played, and was current coach of Warrington Wolves. That school played Rugby ####ing Union. At the time, it didn't recognise league.

We have Rylands, Crosfields, Bank Quay Bulls, Woolston Rovers, etc. Wigan have LOADS of local clubs PLUS schools. Then there's Stl Helens .

Our marketing dept/promotions/schoolwork still have tons of work, to get even close to them.
Neither glass half full or empty. Just a realist.

Keep the dream. I'd LOVE it

But until the PE teachers of this town, and we get more local sides, Ive more chance of having a pooh on the Queen's handbag

Our club MUST work 10000% to get to other NW team levels
Our football team gets pathetically poor attendances, for a town of 200,000+ population, so bar 4 big local(ish) Premier League teams, we are NOT a football town.
So what do those 200000+ people spend their leisure money on..

Get these newcomers to Warrington, living in Chapelford, Saxon Park, etc, into RL.

Schools start it
Look at Oldham. poop at RL for decades, but their schools have produced quite a few recent greats, in recent years.

Schools, schools, schools

Who cares about this pure blood crap.

Mike Gregory came from Wigan.
Des Drummond came from Jamaica.
Brian Bevan came from Bondi.
Lee Briers came from St Helens.
Jonathan Davies came from Trimsaran.

It's not where you are born it's the pride you show in the primrose and blue.
