General What Culture do we Want at the Warriors?

According to the dictionary, Work Place Culture is: a way of thinking, behaving or working that exists within an organization.

Not to be confused with Ethnic Culture: the beliefs, customs, arts etc... of a particular society.

What exactly is the culture (way of thinking, behaving etc,,,) that we want to get rid of, and what is the best culture that we want to grow instead?

We want to get rid of the "not-winning-a-premiership culture" and we want the to develop a "premiership-winning culture".

I don't feel that is too much to ask for.

Plus would also be nice to see a little pride in their work, I don't have a problem with the pat on the shoulder/head after a mistake. it's not a bloke being congratulated, it's a ok you made a mistake, don't dwell on it, it's the same as the wave from the bloke that made the mistake it's a sorry I fucked up signal not a shucks never mind. Pride will bring effort, effort will bring pride. I look at it like a guy that finishes the job they're doing before dropping the gear and going to smoko/home as opposed to the person that disappears the second knock off arrives.

More strict from management right through.
More authoritative players who can kill you with a glare if you don't toe the line.
A harder training regime to knock some guys down to size.
Dropping of players who display weak attitude or concentration.

I think we need more of a defensive mind set taking hold of the club.

And the only way to get that is through a heightened sense of brother-hood between the players (and staff). IMO.

So really it comes down to every player working their butts off and acting selflessly towards their teammates at all times... Sacrificing their own careers for the good of the club if need be... (asking a lot with that one I know).

But that's the attitude that gets a team through the toughest battles...

I'd also like to see more respect for the game of Rugby League as well.

If players want to throw the ball around in broken play they can go play union.

League is game of power, territory and set plays.. IMO.

Only culture I want to see at the club is this guy.... looks like he would be handy to help shore up the fringe defence

We need to be harder on ourselves in terms of accountability,as far as I'm concerned we have too much boys and not enough men, we have too much players willing to be glory hogs and not enough willing to roll the sleeves up and do the real work that needs to be done, we need a culture that's tough on ourselves during training and life in general not just games!

I read an interesting story about Justin Horo when he left Parramatta to go to Manly and the huge difference in professionalism, even at training! Apparently during preseason training Horo knocked the ball on during practice drills and was told in no uncertain terms by senior figures that it's just not farken good enough, right there and then he realized what it took to be in a successful team, that is the type of attitude our senior players need to implement here, ruthless but fair attitude.

How we go about conducting ourselves in a professional manner away from football, professionalism in every thing we do, it may be just simple things like a dress code, using social network appropriately and not making immature asses of ourselves, it's the little details that go a long way to instilling a successful culture.

We need the type of culture where the wall of the training gym doesn't look like a Gang pad set from once were Warriors.

All that Americanised tagging style art is where I would take out My Roller and paint a Mural of the NRL Trophy.

In keeping with the gang pad idea , one of my players tweeting gang regalia in any context would get a first and final warning.

Lastly I would work to change the perception that the Vulcans are there as a punishment for first grade fk ups......rather foster a belief that the Vulcans when used by first grade players is akin to pilots using flight simulators to hone their skills........how is that done ?

Put first graders in the Vulcans in pairs or more......so they don't feel picked on and give them specific targets to meet in the game.

  • A culture that reflects a professional sporting franchise rather than one where having fun is paramount.
  • A culture where a player who puts in the hard yards at training and studying his position is the norm, not the exception.
  • A culture where superstars know they have to work even harder than the rest of the team.
  • A culture where every player specifically dedicates time to strengthen their weaknesses.
  • A culture where the team is more important than the individual.
  • A culture where the team listens to the coach.
  • A culture where the players are treated and expected to behave like men working for a boss, instead of boys who need their mothers' hugs.

As much as I hate them, I want the type of culture that has been ingrained at Manly. Those dudes are winners, regardless of who takes the field and whether or not they actually win the game, they are winners.

A culture where losing is not acceptable. No smiles, no laughing after a game. players who are hurting after a loss and just want to get back out there next week and make up for it.

I reckon the Parra culture. Senior players own the team, coach has no say. Couple of marque players with great hairstyles and doing plane interpretations, a great junior development programme and nice jerseys.

That's at least an improvement on what we have had recently, which is exactly what you've said, except it's junior players owning the team.

It's only going to work if/when a "big" player is put down in the Vulcans for a week or two - Matulino, Vatuvei, Mannering, even Johnson - which would most likely happen if that player was expected to fill a different role (Vatuvei moving to the second row being a prime example).

Up until now the Vulcans has been the Naughty Chair, by and large. It needs to be like a "finishing school" for the U20s. Ideally, promote a player to the occassional stint in the Vulcans, make that more permanent if the player deserves it, then adopt the same approach to the First Grade. Bit by bit, get the U20s players bad habits out of their game by exposing them to older, better, more experienced players, better tactics, better skills etc but without the pressure of NRL crowds/coverage.

Wil be interesting how the NRL handle the U20s and NSW/QLD cups with their competition review. The questions they asked on their survey canvassed how people viewed those comps, and floated the idea of age limits being lifted and increasing exposure of 20s, as well as how the state cups should function.

Point being, the landscape may change again. If Vulcans become a genuine Warriors reserves Elliot's plans are on track. But if they decide the cost of an additional comp is too great and hedge their bets, expanding to U23s and giving it more exposure, then Holden Cup will become entrenched as the 2nd tier.

One other thing I really want to see at the warriors is a real culture of unity. Where the best players make the team, and everybody else respects that and works to improve their own efforts and skills trying to keep up...

The whole 'believing in yourself', while doing nothing to get better attitude has to go....
