If a new manager came in at your place of work and told you and the rest of your colleagues that you've been underperforming for years, you need to buck your ideas up, and there are no more perks like finishing early; would you and the rest of your team be working at 100%? I imagine no.


If you'd have said this before the season started, 90% of our fans would have said that was exactly what our underperforming team need.

Am I the only one that thinks Toulouse may get out of trouble, or close enough to make it damn uncomfortable?

Generally, they are competing in every game, they have strengthened (and unlike us they seem to have had a positive impact), playing away to them in the height of summer will be far more of a test than the HJ ........ and they have a spirit and respect for their coach that puts us to shame.


No you’re not the only one - I think we’re in serious trouble. Toulouse beat Wakey at the weekend and they’re 4 behind us with a game against us. As I posted earlier - we’ve won 2 out of 13 - that’s relegation form. Our defence is pathetic - the first try on Sunday would have embarrassed an under 10s team.

And I don’t think players down-tooled either, just under fatigue our defensive system and communication was found to be awful.


I agree with this. Salford's ruck speed was far superior to ours. They had runners off the ball and they changed the direction of play causing us no end of problems. We were 1 dimensional, we made un forced errors and our kicking game was useless. We we're constantly backing off in indefence.

In the last 15 minutes Salford still had gas in the tank whilst we were running on empty, both in terms of energy and confidence.

Does it look to your eyes like they're trying to impress to secure a contract elsewhere? From 22 - 8 up, at home, conceding 3 trys in 10 minutes at the end to lose the game, says a lot about the attitude of those players. Out in the first round of the play offs at home in the past 3 years under the previous coach says its not a one off with these players.

Powell doesn't look like the answer at the moment, though I'm still backing him above the players because he has a track record of improving things long term, whereas these players have a track record of underperforming year upon year.

Powell may well fail, but I'd rather we rolled the dice in a big way than get stuck with underachieving half arsed players as a result of appointing another Price type manager. And it may sound crazy, but I'd rather we teeter on the edge this season if it means we'll have a better chance in future of winning the GF because of a culture change.

As mentioned just, I like the idea of a DOF type appointment. That would hopefully provide a bit of long-term consistency with regard to the type of players we recruit and playing style.



At some point Warrington will be playing Toulouse, and you can guarantee between now and then that our players will be also playing to lose.


Then we agree to differ. You have no evidence of many players not wanting to win.
There is a season of evidence so far that the coach hasn't improved any of the players, attack, defence, transition, there is no well understood game plan, no real team spirit, poor selection of players, poor PR - the list goes on.
I admire the support you are giving the current coaching set up but have you asked yourself does this make common sense.

Is it common sense to blame the new coach for the performance of complacent players who've underperformed for the two previous coaches over 7 odd years?

Is it common sense to lay most of the blame at the new coach when his track record over many years at different clubs shows improvement; in contrast to our players who've underperformed for 3 different coaches letting the supporters and club down time and time again?

I'm still backing Powell, but I totally get everyone's concerns and do actually agree with many points, especially regarding the squad selection, lack improvement and attitude.

It's not a black and white issue this, Powell is certainly not blameless. But for me, the biggest problem is player culture, and if it takes an appalling season to rid ourselves of this, even at the risk of going down, I'm taking it.

For years now this group of players have taken much of the enjoyment out of watching Warrington. Apart from the saints game, I know these players arent really that bothered about performing for us fans and I just want rid, even with the risks involved. I much preferred it when little was expected, yet our players would go out and give it 100% more often. But I also get that many would rather us play safe.

Its not a black and white issue you say, but let's blame the players anyway....OK, if you want to, but the logic doesn't add up. Powell's team performance at the end of last year was poor and it has continued with us, no good talking of his successes years ago, his coaching skills have now deserted it appears.

We won't go down but we'll make it competitive guaranteed

...and judge Powell's credentials on the end of last season with a team who know he's leaving? And ignore 20 odd years worth of coaching experience on which to judge?

I could say that Warrington played well yesterday... if I watched the first 10 minutes of the second half and omitted the other 70 minutes. Now logically that doesn't add up.

Tony Smith has had a bad run and been sacked, is he a bad coach? Every coach has their peaks and troughs, but I believe most appointers of coaches/playing staff will judge a candidate over their whole career and seek to establish whether there's an overall rising trajectory or stable if the coach is at the top of his game.

It wasn't so long ago that Powell took Castleford to the top of the table winning the league leaders Shield with a comparatively under resourced squad. This same side were close to relegation a few years earlier.

I also read somewhere that Powell had coached 5 MOS players, but don't quote me on that.
