Tony Iro. The epitome of what's wrong with the Warriors. No accountability. How someone can continue to remain employed after continual failure in doing what he's been employed to do will do me. Needs to be turfed.

NRL: Iro may get reserve side in Warriors shakeup

Expect significant changes to the Warriors management and coaching staff for 2018.

The club spent almost three weeks completing reviews after the 2017 season, and are set to implement some structural changes in the next few days.

The Herald on Sunday understands head of recruitment and development Tony Iro may be given the reins of the club's reserve grade side next season.

ISP coach Ricky Henry is expected to be retained at the Auckland club, possibly in a role with the Under-20s side, as well having some input at first grade level.

The future of Grant Pocklington, who was in charge of the Junior Warriors over the past season, is uncertain, but he is highly rated inside the NRL franchise and is likely to be kept on in a coaching role.

Iro has plenty of coaching experience, having coached the Warriors' Under-20s in 2008 and 2009, when the likes of Kevin Locke, Shaun Johnson and Russell Packer were coming through the ranks. He also served as assistant coach to Ivan Cleary (2010-2011) and Brian McClennnan (2012), and returned to that role for the 2015 season under Andrew McFadden.

If Iro does take the clipboard again, he will continue some development work, but recruitment responsibilities will fall to the yet to be appointed football director.

Warriors CEO Cameron George declined to comment on the possible changes, but told the Herald on Sunday the club will have the "best possible" coaching structure in place for next year.

"We need to have the best kids, the best development and the best coaching to make sure they are NRL ready," said George. "That's my focus."

IRO to get coaching role.

They still have plans for Ricky, including help with first grade.

Iro has been confirmed as the new coach of the ISP side. Ricky Henry to u20s new cup side with assistant Jerome Ropati.

Iro will also be involved in development programmes and be involved in some capacity with the first grade side.

Changes are made in response to a clearer pathway for young players to make the switch up to first grade.

Translation: they need people who can actually coach to fix the u20 side that was turned into a mess this season.
Iro can do less damage to the ISP side because the players will have been coached properly in u20s Kearney and others will be overseeing everything he is doing anyway!

Probably a good move unless Ricky himself sees it as a demotion. He's always been good with young players.

Regardless of opinions of Iro This is a good thing ,
Plus it gives Iro a fair go to show what he's got ,
Time will tell,,But getting these guys ready for first grade
Has got to be some kind of priority,,And the more resources
We can elocate the better ,Iro has coached first grade as a stand in
Coach thankless job ,,An should get his boys first grade ready if he's
Successful we should see players transition from reserve grade to the
Top grade seemlessly
While hopefully getting a good solid base of players coming through the juniors

ISP draw revealed for 2018
Author Richard Becht
Wed 20 Dec 2017, 10:38 AM
The Vodafone Warriors start their 2018 Intrust Super Premiership NSW campaign with back-to-back home games against North Sydney and Canterbury-Bankstown.

While the draw, just released by the New South Wales Rugby League, then hands the Vodafone Warriors a run of three fixtures on the road, they have three straight matches at home in April to give them six encounters at Mount Smart Stadium in the opening eight rounds.

The Vodafone Warriors, who were within one win of reaching the ISP grand final this year, are under the guidance of Tony Iro in 2018.

It was announced yesterday that the Intrust Super Premiership NSW will be broadcast live on Channel Nine in 2018 for the first time, in addition to increased coverage from FOX SPORTS, making it the most watched in the competition’s history.

All 24 rounds of the regular season will feature in a 1pm Saturday live slot on the Nine Network in addition to up to two games live each week on Fox Sport’s dedicated rugby league channel, Fox League on Foxtel.

“We’ve worked really hard with the 12 clubs and the broadcasters to build a draw that will take the Intrust Super Premiership NSW competition to a bigger audience than ever before,” NSWRL general manager of football Barrie-Jon Mather said.

“Next season, with the support of Channel Nine, Fox League and the NRL, the quality and the talent of the NRL’s next-generation will be on show for all to see.

“For the first time, free-to-air TV will showcase our state’s premier competition, highlighting the continued growth and quality of the league.”

The 2018 season will include three special rounds:

• Respect Round (Round 5, 7-8 April), in line with the start of the Junior League season

• Magic Round (Round 11, 19-20 May), which will see two triple-headers of Intrust Super Premiership NSW games, likely to be played at iconic venues Henson Park and North Sydney Oval

• Heritage Round (Round 20, 28-29 July), which will raise awareness and funds for Men of League.

Another feature will be a number of double-headers with the new-look Jersey Flegg Cup (Under-20 competition) or other NSWRL competitions, rather than stand-alone games.

ISP and Jersey Flegg Cup teams for first round
Richard Becht & www.photosport.nz
Tue 6 Mar 2018, 04:25 PM

Scotland international James Bell will captain a Vodafone Warriors side showing several new faces plus new signings Karl Lawton and Matiu Love-Henry for Saturday’s first-round Intrust Super Premiership match against North Sydney at Mount Smart Stadium (1.00pm kick-off).

Bell has support from a group of players who took the Vodafone Warriors within a win of the ISP grand final last year – wing Charnze Nicoll-Klokstad, props Chris Satae and Patrick Sipley, hooker Manaia Cherrington and fullback Zac Santo (the latter named on the interchange).


Lawton, signed from the Gold Coast Titans just last week, will have his first outing for the club at hooker.

Named at fullback for his first ISP game is 18-year-old fullback Hayze Perham, who had such an impressive second half in the club’s NRL trial against Melbourne in Rotorua.

Back in a Vodafone Warriors jersey is second rower Love-Henry, a former NYC player at the club who has returned to Auckland after a stint in Brisbane.

Also included are regular 2017 NYC playersr, Chanel Harris-Tavita, Lewis Soosemea and Joseph Vuna; Soosemea and Vuna had a brief taste of ISP football last year.

In the early game on Saturday, the Vodafone Junior Warriors will line up in the new look New South Wales Jersey Flegg Cup under-20 competition, created to replace the NYC.

Like the look of that team. Perham, Soosemea, Vuna and Harris-Tavita could all be playing U20 this year. All of them look to be first grade bound over the next couple of years.

They must rate Sione Afemui highly, straight out of Raiders U20 last year and now starting lock in ISP.

Happy to see Trent Schaumkel get a chance. Tall, strong, athletic and still young as well.
