Webb's future uncertain at Warriors
May 29, 2006

A THREE-week overseas trip by Brent Webb's manager may determine the New Zealand Warriors fullback's future.

Webb's manager Jim Banaghan has left for the UK to size up interest from five English Super League clubs for the off contract Kiwi international.

Banaghan said he had also received interest from two Super 14 rugby franchises and a number of NRL clubs.

Warriors chief executive Wayne Scurrah today confirmed off-contract Parramatta fullback Wade McKinnon would be in the mix if Webb was not re-signed.

"He's one of a few fullbacks coming off contract so certainly we would consider him," he said.

Scurrah said informal talks had been held with Banaghan but conceded a deal with Webb would not be struck until current negotiations with "about five" off-contract players were finalised.

"We are in a difficult position – until we conclude those negotiations we don't know how much we have left," he said.

"What we have to determine is whether we can afford Brent at the sort of money that his agent would demand and also how he fits into the coach's roster from next year.

"As with any player coming off contract we have to see what the options are.

"If there is a better player in any position we have to evaluate that and that is no different with the fullback position.

"We haven't discounted Brent nor have we concluded a contract with him."

Banaghan told the New Zealand Herald newspaper "the Warriors seems like the only club not interested in him (Webb)".

Scurrah replied: "That sounds like Jim Banaghan.

"I can't comment on what interest Jim might have had from other clubs but we certainly haven't discounted Brent from our player roster.

"We are not panicking. I don't think Jim is panicking.

"He (Banaghan) sounds like he has got offers from everything from rugby to table tennis – I'm sure Brent will be well catered for if we can't reach an agreement."

The Warriors are reportedly looking at bringing in two or three Australian-based players next season.

I know whose side I'd be taking in this argument.

Id take Scurrahs. Sounds like he's got a super cool head on his shoulders. I feel pretty good for once about the upper management at this club !!

Typical player manager talking it up like a car salesman.

Pending a miracle, Webb will be at another club next year. Rumor has it he's keen on playing for Daniel Anderson again... apparently he was one of the few Warriors players that actually respected the way he coached.

I think you can tell from what Scurrah is saying that it is almost unlikely that they will re-sign Webb, he seems to almost be pushing him away for the Australian-based players mentioned at the bottom of the article.
