Brown backed to bring best out of Warriors

Former Warriors hero Kevin Campion says coach Nathan Brown can't be judged until he's had the chance to get his side back to New Zealand, despite suffering two of the most humiliating losses in the club's history in recent weeks.

Either side of a one-point win over Canberra, the Warriors lost by a club-record 60-point margin to Melbourne in round seven before their defeat by a 12-man Cronulla side, who had to play with 11 for 10 minutes, on Sunday.

One-time Warriors consultant Phil Gould called the loss to the Sharks "insulting" while former coach Frank Endacott suggested the club, which has made the finals once in the last 10 years, was at an all-time low.

Brown guided the Warriors to a 12th-placed finish in his first season at the helm last year.

He has yet to coach the club in New Zealand in what is now their third year in exile in Australia following the start of the pandemic.

The Warriors, who have registered a 4-5 start to the 2022 season to sit 10th, will return to Auckland for fly-in fly-out games this year before permanently relocating back to New Zealand next year.

Ahead of the Warriors' Magic Round showdown with South Sydney in Brisbane, Campion told AAP that Brown needed to be afforded time in a settled environment.

"The Warriors wouldn't be thinking the coach is on the chopping block, I think he's the right man for the job," he said.

"They need to give him at least a couple of years over in New Zealand so he can replicate what he's been trying to do here in Australia.

"He's trying to build a culture at the club - and as an outsider looking in - it's tremendous what they're doing."

Campion was viewed as a circuit breaker when he signed for the club and played a part in taking them to their maiden grand final in 2002.

He said the current crop of players had the ability to be a force but lacked composure.

"I still think we are a top-eight team," he said.

"We've just got to find some consistency.

"In the game with Cronulla they scored a try and then dropped the ball on the next set and that makes it difficult for yourself and nobody wanted to put their hand up and lead the team around.

"They don't seem to keep it simple at different stages."
