Statement on the NRL Warriors Team

10 May 2020 sports

I have been advised the Warriors NRL team will be based at Terrigal from 20 May onwards.

The team is here to play sport, not party. If any player or staff fails to follow the NRL health protocols, I will be the first calling for the team to leave Terrigal.


I have spoken with NRL and Warriors management and am confident the team will abide by the extremely strict health and biosecurity protocols that have been developed.


I know our community is a rugby league heartland and I would encourage all fans to adopt the 'Central Coast Warriors’ as their second team in the NRL competition this year.


Quotes attributable to Warriors CEO Cameron George:


The Warriors are very excited about being based on the Central Coast during the NRL competition this year.


We have been embraced by the Tamworth community and plan to develop an equally strong relationship with the Central Coast.


We hope the community can jump on board and embrace the unique opportunity to cheer for a local team in the NRL competition this year.


Our players and staff will abide by the strong NRL health protocols at all times, which are even more stringent than the current health regulations that the broader community is subject to.
