Warriors wield axe
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.
