Warriors playmaker Kieran Foran has defended the culture within the club, as the struggling NRL side sit on the precipice of their worst ever losing streak in the NRL.
Warriors half Kieran Foran warms up against the Dragons.
The 36-18 loss to the South Sydney Rabbitohs on Friday night saw the club record it's seventh straight loss, just one away from equalling their all time worst run of defeats in the club's history, with many questioning the desire of the playing squad.
Foran however, says that the culture within the club is not the problem, as he prepares to leave the Warriors to join the Bulldogs next season.
"Everyone works really hard here, everyone has the right intentions and wants success just like the fans do," Foran told Fairfax.
"Everyone has worked bloody hard to get success and sometimes it takes a bit longer than what you'd think."
Foran also urged patience from an ever disenfranchised Warriors support base, saying that the club is heading in the right direction.
"It can't happen overnight, but from what I've seen here, the culture is great."
"The boys are really close, they stick together and they continue to want to improve and take their games to another level."
"That's all you can want in a football club and I think they've got it here."
The Warriors face Manly at home next week, before travelling to Sydney to take on the Wests Tigers in the final round of the season, hoping to avoid losses that would see the current side go down in history for all the wrong reasons.
