Andrew McFadden in for extended stay with Warriors

ANDREW McFadden has been signed as the Warriors' head coach to the end of 2017 NRL season.

The permanent appointment comes a month after the 36-year-old ex-Canberra, Parramatta and Melbourne playmaker was brought in as acting head coach to replace Matt Elliott.

In his first four games in charge the Warriors have had two hard-fought losses followed by impressive wins against Melbourne and Canberra.

On Saturday McFadden guided the side to a nine-try 54-12 rout of the Raiders, a club record winning margin against Canberra.
