War­riors wield axe

Townsville Bulletin - - Rugby League -

WAR­RIORS coach Ivan Cleary de­nies push­ing the panic but­ton with his sweep­ing team changes in a bid to turn around their 0-3 NRL sea­son start. But as the adage goes, des­per­ate times call for dras­tic mea­sures af­ter the club’s worst start to a sea­son in seven years. Star­ing at a pos­si­ble fourth straight loss against sur­prise pack­ets Cronulla in the North Is­land town of Taupo on Sun­day, Cleary wielded the axe like never be­fore. Se­nior play­ers Lance Ho­haia and Brett Sey­mour were the high­est­pro­file vic­tims, along with cen­tre Joel Moon.
