Scurrah to resign if Warriors fall short

Warriors chief executive Wayne Scurrah will resign if the club fails to reach the NRL playoffs.

Scurrah says the club hasn't achieved its on-field goals since reaching the grand final in 2011 and is putting his neck on the public chopping block in the hope they finish in the top eight.

The boss of the club for nine years told Radio Sport that failure on the field doesn't reflect well on the back office, prompting his ultimatum.

"I will step down because it won't be right for the club not to make the finals three years in a row and for there not to be a change of direction at the top," he said.

Scurrah's stance comes in a week where he and other senior management have been heavily criticised for their handling of the departure of coach Matthew Elliott, just five rounds into the season.

The Warriors were able to shine a glimmer of light on the grim fallout of Elliott's exit on Saturday, announcing that long-serving captain Simon Mannering has extended his contract for a further four years.

Scurrah began his tenure in 2005 following the departure of former chief executive Mick Watson.
