Josh McGuire’s father, Adam, has expressed his disappointment with the Super League judiciary and Warrington after his son was suspended for the second time this season for his use of “unacceptable language.” McGuire’s suspension likely marks the end of his top-grade career, and his father took to social media to defend him. According to Adam McGuire, Josh did not make derogatory comments about a relative of Josh Charnley, as has been alleged. He claims that Josh only referred to Charnley as a “rat,” and that he did not say anything negative about Charnley’s family members, noting that his own daughter is deaf and many of his family members have disabilities. Adam McGuire also criticized Warrington for not providing player supporting statements, which could have prevented the hearing from taking place. He believes that it comes down to one person’s word against another and that there is no supporting evidence other than Charnley’s word. Furthermore, Adam McGuire mentioned that his son played with head knocks and was told not to report them. He also stated that his son’s hand is numb due to a shoulder injury, but the club did not want to scan it out of fear of finding damage. Adam McGuire expressed his disappointment with the way his son and family were treated and stated that he is glad they are coming back to Australia. While the McGuire family has shared their side of the story, Warrington strongly disputes their version of events. In another rugby news, Roger Tuivasa-Sheck, former Warriors and Roosters star, won’t be returning to the NRL for the finals as there is a battle between rugby league and union in New Zealand. Tuivasa-Sheck, who missed out on All Black selection, is playing for the Super Rugby team Auckland Blues and will be participating in the National Provincial Championship for Auckland until October. The battle between league and union has prevented him from playing in the NRL. Meanwhile, Lachlan Lam, former Rooster, is being pursued by NRL clubs, including Canberra. The complication is that Lam’s coach at Leigh is his father, Adrian Lam, a former Maroons legend. Lam recently won Super League’s player of the month and is undecided about his plans for next year. Lastly, the appointment of Shane Flanagan as coach of the Dragons ensures that utility player Jack Bird, who had wanted to leave the club in the past, will remain. Bird had played under Flanagan during Cronulla’s premiership success in 2016 and is pleased with the Dragons’ choice of coach.
