webb said on tv3 news last night he wants to stay at the warriors, but the warriors have yet to offer him anything.

Ok everyone going to the warriors game on the weekend against the broncos, bring huge signs saying "WARRIORS GIVE BRENT WEBB A NEW CONTRACT, DON'T LET HIM GO". Hopefully the tv cameras will pick this up and the warriors management will also see it.

The Warriors management wants Webb to stay as well, so that sort of message wouldn't help things. Perhaps if it said "LOWER YOUR PRICE, BANAGHAN", you might have a bit more success. ;)

JESBAS,

Maybe a thing called the salary cap??

I really hope the Warriors sign him soon..he wants to stay..and they want him to stay!!

IMO he should be the first person they look at signing.

Because they can't afford the price tag associated with him. Webb isn't the only person on the playing roster asking for more money, and all of that fits into the equation. They're not going to offer him something that he definitely won't want. They can't even tell just how much money they have to spend on him, and they won't know that until negotiations with other players are complete.

You don't have to convince them to want to sign him, it's whether or not they can afford to that is dragging out the process.

if i was webb i would go to the best offer that has a chance to win the grand final,he is still young enough to go to the super league later.i wish him well and thank him for the memories, i know this is a little premature but he has his pride and i wouldnt stay if i thought i wasnt wanted.hearing him on the radio i think he feels unwanted,GOOD LUCK WEBBY.ps dont forget he is a great fullback///

I understand the need to consider all the players that we might re-sign but surely it is a question of priority.

Bottom line is that we need a fullback for next year. If we do not re-sign Brent Webb we will need to sign someone else (this is on the basis that I do not believe that we have someone of sufficient calibre in our development ranks at this stage).

Irrespective of what any other player is offered a certain amount of money will need to be kept aside to sign a fullback which may or may not be Brent Webb.

I believe that at the very least we must be able to put an offer to Brent Webb and his agent equal to the amount that would be used to sign someone else. This will at least start the negotiating process and give a better idea of what will be required to keep him.

The impression that I have is that at the moment there have not been any discussions or approach to Brent Webb about staying for next year. I really hope this is incorrect.

Of the other players coming off contract that have not already determined to go elsewhere (Toopi and Villa who has already left) or re-signed, only Tuimavave and Webb would fall into my category of must re-sign. Awen and Epalahame certainly can still provide a valuable contribution to the club but neither have come close to the consistency and impact of both Webb and Tuimavave.

I think Brent Webb is an important part of the Warriors' future and will be a lot happier if his signature is on a contract before June 30.

As always been said of late, the Warriors are looking towards their future, but in saying that, you can keep everyone single one. As much as we would love to I'm sure.
Yes they definitely have to decide who is their main priority; and from and article related to Webby I heard that the Warriors are still looking at buying out a couple more Aussies (everyone groans).

Webb Set To Leave Warriors
02/06/2006 12:44 PM

Brent Webb's manager Jim Banaghan is almost certain the Warriors' fullback will leave the club.

Despite being in top form, Webb has received no offer from the Warriors only four weeks out from the NRL's anti-tampering deadline, with his contract up at the end of the season.

While coach Ivan Cleary says he would like to have Webb, he admits they are in the process of putting together a roster, signaling the fact Webb has received no offer as possibly being due to a monetary issue.

Banaghan is looking at other options. He says the rumour mill suggests the club is chasing Parramatta's Wade McKinnon in preference to Webb, and says if that is the case then so be it.

Jim Banaghan says with the salary cap at around NZ$5 million he is sure the Warriors could fit Webb in, but they do not seem interested.

Webb's manager, Jim Banaghan is sure they will have to look overseas.

Banaghan says Webb is a highly successful player for the club and admits they were expecting an offer by this stage and says it is pretty obvious to them they will not be getting one.

Well that almost seals it, I cannot see why the Warriors management are letting him slip through their fingers, we were the club that took him out of the Queensland Cup, and now he is among our best players with his prime football yet to come. Poor decision, choosing McKinnon over Webb.

Tevita_Latu, I'd appreciate if you try and keep the rough langugage down in the fourm thanks.
It is understandable with people's annoyance and frustation to the topic but try to keep things clean, hence why your two posts were taken out.

As for Webby, I guess maybe it was meant to happen. No point crying over spilt milk guys. It would be sad to see him go (infact it's not a great idea) but oh well! Shows once again the team's high turnover of players!

I absolutely agree with you, Mo. Webb and Tuimavave must be the top two priorities - but giving Webb (and Banaghan) whatever he wants may result in the loss of Tuimavave. I really want Webb to stay, and I agree that it would be best if he had already been offered a new contract by now, but as Wayne mentioned in the meeting, none of us really know how much Banaghan is asking for. I think they're trying to get all their ducks in a row.

Although i have a bad feeling about webb, i think evarn will stay, the players who've resigned theres been no fuss made , including evarn. could be wrong but if we sign him it will cheer me up about webb.

If he does go, it'll seem weird him not being at the warriors, and playing for someone else.

I think losing Tuimavave would be a bigger loss, TBH.

There's no one I can see on the horizon coming through the Australian clubs who quite offers what Evarn is offering right now. And in particular, with foresight as to the longevity of Wiki and Price's careers, Tuimavave should be looked at as a cornerstone of our pack, along with hopefully the return of Iafeta Paleaaesina when his contract ends with Wigan.

However, at fullback, there are many like for like replacements going onto the market with Greenshields, McKinnon and Turner. If you could gnab one of them for $100K less than Webb's expectations, the club would have made a very sound business decision.

I still think that we will be lsoing a huge investment in Brent Webb. I think that when you blood a player and develop a player they shouldn't be lost they are to valuable that way. I think losing Webby will be a bad decision, but on the back of lots of bad decisions, because we should of been planning for his re-signing last year, he is the sort of player who shouldn't be lost.

We could have johns in the side at the moment and still lose. Theres no piont spending shitloads of money on one good player now so when the rest of the team finally start firing in a few years time, that star player has peaked or ready for retirement. Spend the money on developing good youngsters. Webbs been one of our best player for three years and weve sucked for three years spending heaps on him wont make a difference. I think thats what cleary means with a balanced team.
