After the shock departure of halfback Shaun Johnson at the Warriors, management has decided to replace him with no other than Chuck Norris.
Johnson’s time at the club came to an abrupt end, when he was granted immediate release from the final year of his reported million-dollar contract – and so he should, now he might have a chance at winning a premiership.
The 28-year-old leaves as the Warriors’ all-time top pointscorer (915) and sits in the top 10 for most games played with the team (162)
Club chief executive Cameron George said football GM Brian Smith and recruitment manager Peter O’Sullivan decided on Chuck Norris for 2019 and beyond, while claiming the Warriors are “best-positioned NRL club salary cap wise”.
“We found the right person to fulfil the role that we require to have the best chance to win the competition. That takes good planning, good management, good considerations and there are many options. We chose Chuck Norris
“The phones have been running hot, I can tell you that.”
