    Almost all discussion on Adam Blair has been moved to his own thread. While some were relevant to this thread a lot werent. Say anything you want about him, team combinations etc in the following thread.

    http://www.nzwarriors.com/threads/adam-blair-boom-or-bust.58386

    Still getting posts wondering if we should get X player who doesnt have any links to the club via rumours, articles etc. These go in the Who Should the Warriors Sign thread. Pretty easy to tell cause its called the who should the Warriors sign?

    http://www.nzwarriors.com/threads/who-should-the-warriors-sign-for-2018.53595

    Any team combinations you wanna see like:

    1 Roger Tuivasa-Sheck
    2 CNK
    3 Adam Blair
    4 Tohu Harris
    5 James Graham etc

    Go in the following thread.

    http://www.nzwarriors.com/threads/your-warriors-team-for-2018.55805/

    Very time poor at the moment, as are all mods right now, so Im just going to start banning people from this thread to help ease the workload. Thanks...

    one of my clients is an ex parra player. not going to give his name away but he was one of the blokes who was part of that group of ex players trying to win a boar vote or something a few years ago. everything he tells me about parra is always dead on. the other NRL stuff is 50/50

    was training him this morning and he shared an interesting bit of info. warriors are chasing james graham very very hard at the moment they see him as the new Steve Price. asked him on the chances of him signing he said "not likely"

    I don't know why that made me crack up so much, but it did.

    "We're trying really really really hard to get this guy."

    "Thick we'll get him?"

    "No chance."

    So, why are the Warriors "trying really, really hard"? Surely any CEO/recruitment people good at what they do know when they're being lead on...

    As I've said, all for JD asking the question, not so keen on the "I'll be your best friend. Please come and play, look, have these two shiny coins, isn't that more than your friend over there gave you? Puh-leeeeeeeeze!!" stuff. Simple "Interested in coming over at market rates?" "Um, no, thanks!" "Right, thanks, bye!" sorta thing.

    Problem is we need him more than he needs us so he holds all the cards...

    If he's got the back loaded contract he is rumoured to have and Warriors aren't offering as much who can blame him.

    Didn't Gubb lie that he had a contract with cows to try and push his price up, only to find he was fibbing?? Perhaps not his doing, but his manager.

    from David Skipwith

    "Canterbury Bulldogs captain James Graham's manager has also made contact with the Warriors, and while the club is yet to begin formal talks with the former England skipper the current situation won't help the negotiation process."

    Link has been hidden. Please Register to view.

    I try not to get my hopes up hearing this because a) it could be bs and b) even if it's true the manager's probably sounding out most clubs to see how much they'd be willing to pay Graham in case he can't stay at the Dogs (which I think is unlikely). Even still, it would be huge if we were able to sign this guy.

    No I just remember it came out recently that a Warriors player had been caught saying he had a offer from another club, possibly trying to jack his price up. Only to be found that there was no offer and the player was now on the outer at the club. Given the player circumstances, I could only really guess it was Gubb.

    Rumour was that it was a player who wasnt in a Sydney team. Warriors fans speculated it was a Warriors player while Im sure Broncos, Cowboys, Titans and Raiders fans thought it was a player from their team...

    Uh I see, my bad. I wonder why he said hes happy considering things have panned out? Maybe thinks a change of environment could grow his game. Cows could very well be true if it looks like Pat Kaufusi may be going to Storm. He could fill a hole their I guess.
