The Vodafone Warriors this week announced the appointment of two assistant coaches to support Andrew McFadden as the club prepares for its 2015 campaign.
Coach McFadden is excited to be working with both Tony Iro and Andrew Webster going forward.
“Both of those guys have a fair bit of experience and I want them to challenge me and bring new ideas,” said McFadden.
“I need good people on the ground making sure the team are doing the hard yards.”
McFadden has been impressed with Andrew Webster, who, despite being only 32 years old, already has 10 years of coaching experience under his belt.
“He was coaching for Hull KR as a 25 year old. That’s pretty impressive to be able to do that,” said McFadden. “He’s got a really good reputation in the game and he’s certainly a coach on the rise.”
He believes Webster’s energy will complement the wealth of experience that Tony Iro brings.
Iro was the inaugural NYC coach in 2008, before becoming a NRL assistant coach in 2010. Following the departure of Brian McLennan, Iro became the club’s caretaker manager for the final games of the 2012 campaign.
“Tony’s got a lot of respect in the game and in this organization,” The players are really excited that he is on board.”
