Warriors call emergency meeting after Panthers mauling

3:34 pm on 20 May 2013

The Warriors have been forced into damage control over the reactions of their players following their record NRL loss to the Penrith Panthers last weekend.

The sight of some of the players smiling and joking after the 62-6 loss appears to have frustrated a number of the Warriors' fans and their chief executive, Wayne Scurrah, called an emergency meeting on their return to Auckland.

Scurrah would not reveal what was said in the meeting, but says the players' attitudes were not a good look after the humiliating defeat.

He says the players were not laughing about the result and maintains they are more embarrassed than anyone about their poor form.

Scurrah says they are committed to turning their season around after suffering their worst loss in club history and earning only two wins from their first 10 matches.
