Endacott backs Elliott as Warriors coach

3:14 pm on 22 May 2013

A former Warriors coach believes the current players need to take responsibility for their poor NRL league form, not the coach Matt Elliott.

The Warriors are at the bottom of the ladder after earning just two wins from their first 10 games, with their most recent loss a 62-6 hammering against the Penrith Panthers in Sydney.

That record-breaking loss has sparked calls from fans and pundits for Elliott to be sacked, but the Warriors chief executive Wayne Scurrah is adamant the coach's job is safe.

The former coach, Frank Endacott, says the Warriors are right to back Elliott.

Endacott says Elliott should send a message to his team by dropping some underperforming players.
