The St George Illawarra Dragons have announced that Recruitment Manager David Warwick has tendered his resignation effective immediately.
Warwick made the decision in order to take up an opportunity as Head of Recruitment with Wests Tigers.
“It comes after much thought and with some remorse that I have tendered my resignation,” said Warwick.
“I have been offered an opportunity to further my career overseeing recruitment at Wests Tigers and it was a role I could not knock-back.
“I depart the Dragons though knowing that the Junior Representative program that has been implemented here is in good shape and that the best juniors identified from within our large catchment area have been recruited to the Club.
“Everything is pointing upwards here at the Dragons and the correct structures are in place with the right people overseeing them.”
Dragons Director of Rugby League Pathways Ian Millward has thanked Warwick for the work undertaken during his tenure helping with player recruitment and retention within the Club’s Junior Representative program.
“We are very sad to see Dave depart the Dragons but he has been given a great opportunity which will see him take on more responsibility while also being closer to home,” said Millward.
“He has done great work in his present role contributing towards the identification of many local juniors within our catchment area and recruiting them to our Junior Representative program.
“His departure however will not affect the processes already in place regarding the recruitment and retention of first-grade players here at the Club and he goes with our sincere thanks and best wishes.”
