Well, we gotta fund that MILF Cheerleader squad somehow.

It's only the third home game and I'm already sick to the back teeth of the Sky City theme....

Something we are going to have deal with the more success we have as a club. I wish somebody would proactively look at this and try and take some steps to head this off.

Okay there is a salary cap, means theres only so much our players can be paid which means we will eventually lose some of our best performed players or at least the capable second tier player. Losing this talent will hurt us in the long run.

The ideal is that everyone who wants to play for the Warriors and is good enough will stay. Why not have some kind of system where the players are being taught and groomed by our billionaire owners to create wealth. Buy investment property, create businesses etc..

Hopefully we will have a generation of players who would rather play for the Warriors, already earning $100k on the side. So when the Warriors only offer them $250k rather than say $300k, they may stay with us coz:
1. Theyre already making big money while staying home amongst family $250k + $100k on the side.
2. Earning an extra $50k is not worth it if they go to a crap team and are always losing.
3. We are the existing premiers and have won 3 premierships in a row lol why leave this gun team haha

Good luck Sharky best a luck mate the dreaded curse of the NRL utility player strikes again when you can cover a number of positions you end up with a life on the bench doing exactly that. You deserve a starting spot hope you get that with Penrith.

Sad to see him go because he put in the hards yards for us always, but glad he is still in the NRL so I get to watch him play still, glad also we have the depth to shrug this off and move forward as a team NO DISRESPECT TO LEWIS WHATSOEVER!

Depends on whether he picked Tupou because he liked him or because he didn't like Inu.
Interesting to see if Ivan does indeed have a stab at Tupou. I dont know much about the panties set up on the wings and if they are set there or need someone.

I just remembered that idiot former parra winger that kamikaze himself into Manu round 1 last year and put him out of commish for some time!

Brown at Penrith next season

With the NRL merry-go-round in full swing Lewis Brown won't be the last high-profile coming or going at the Warriors this season.

The Herald understands the club is in pursuit of a major signing from outside the club, while moves are also under way to retain veteran hands Jerome Ropati and Micheal Luck.

With Kiwis halfback/hooker Thomas Leuluai set to join from Wigan and the club extending the contract of captain Simon Mannering until the end of 2015 - and also agreeing extensions with boom centre Konrad Hurrell (2013) and highly-rated Junior Warriors captain John Palavi (2014) - much of next year's squad is in place. However, there are still three or four spots up for grabs for 2013. Most will be filled by promising juniors, but at least one has been reserved for a major signing.

While they declined to discuss specifics, chief executive Wayne Scurrah and recruitment manager Dean Bell indicated a significant signing may be close.

"Not all of our recruitment issues are going to be solved from within," Bell said. "We've got an obligation to bring the best players into the club to make us better each year."

Scurrah indicated the club's preference would be to retain both Luck and Ropati.

"We have been in pretty regular discussion with both players," Scurrah said. "They are certainly both very much in our minds in terms of the future, but clearly you've got to get the right deal done.

"Now that Jerome is back playing and he has settled into the new coach and the new coach has settled into him he is obviously someone we'll be talking to, and talking to his agent in the coming weeks."

Negotiations with Luck will likely be put on hold until he proves his fitness. The 29-year-old, 220-game veteran is yet to play this season after suffering complications from off-season wrist surgery. He also underwent shoulder surgery in the off-season.

The Warriors yesterday confirmed Brown will leave the club next year to link with former coach Ivan Cleary at Penrith.

After failing to come to terms with the Warriors on a contract extension, Brown inked a three-year deal with the Panthers. The Herald understands Brown was swayed by the three-year offer from Penrith and the likelihood he will start in his favoured back row position, while the Warriors were only prepared to offer a two-year deal and couldn't guarantee Brown a regular place in the starting side.

"The fact that we offered Lewy a good package to stay indicated what we thought of him," Bell said. "He has been a great guy from day one and a very valuable member of the squad. But he made a career decision and that is not something we can control."

Scurrah declined to comment on the specifics on the negotiations with Brown, however he did indicate the Warriors had simply been outbid for the six-test Kiwi's services.

"We get to a point now where we are comfortable saying no and we got to a point where we said we couldn't do any more."

Brown joins Roosters-bound five-eighths James Maloney in confirming he will play elsewhere next season.

"It will be tough leaving," Brown said. "The Warriors gave me my break to play in the NRL and also the chance to represent the Kiwis. I love the club but I had to look after my career and I thought the best option for my future was to accept the contract at Penrith."

Brown made his debut against St George Illawarra in Wollongong in 2009 and has played 64 matches for the club, scoring 15 tries as a back rower, centre and hooker.

He joins a slew of high-profile stars to announce in recent weeks they are switching clubs next season. Giant South Sydney forward Dave Taylor has signed for the financially troubled Titans, while Storm halfback Cooper Cronk has also been linked to the Gold Coast club and is expected to confirm his plans today. Others to announce moves for 2013 include Dragons forward Beau Scott (Dragons to Knights), Gerard Beale (Broncos to Dragons) and Tigers forward Gareth Ellis, who is returning to England to play for Hull.

I think everyone realises now that they are. Just hope it's a Foran or a Ranger and not a SBW! I thought yesterday that if the Titans fold it could play well into the Warriors hands. One, because the market will be flooded with extra players looking for a contract, and Two, that will bring the price down. The ol supply and demand principal.

Nice move on Uncle Ivan's behalf - would have known exactly how much to offer Sharkie, and tell him that if the Warriors can't/won't match it, then welcome to a three year deal at Penrith, son. If he brings the same enthusiasm to the Panties as he did with us, he'll go well. I hope some of his on-field hunger has rubbed off on others in his time here.

Good on the bloke. We gave him his start and he paid his dues big time, he played great for us. He was just in a tough position here. I hope he finds some of his best form with the panthers (Just not against the warriors).

Wish the guy goodluck
