Charlie Gubb: Pay Me or Release Me

Charlie Gubb’s manager is continuing to push for a release from the Warriors before the 2017 season kicks off.

It was reported earlier this month that Gubb, 26, requested to re-work his modest 2017 contract or he wanted a release.

The Warriors denied Gubb’s request for a pay increase and the release, as they currently hold an option on him for the 2017 season. 

Gubb’s manager Frank Endacott tried to convince the Warriors to not pick up the option on him.


Stephen Kearney, new coach of the Warriors has been impressed with Gubb’s work at training so far this pre-season and wants to keep the raging bull in his side.


“It’s not satisfactory for Charlie, but it’s something we’ve got to work though and I’m not confident we can resolve it,” Endacott stated.

“He’s on that option year and I’m trying to sort things out, but it’s not happening quickly.

“Normally, if players want to leave a club they let them go.

“Charlie was on a low contract because he had to prove himself. Well he’s more than proved himself, but he’s not getting the salary to match his ability and what he’s worth in the team.”

Endacott said the Warriors needed to pay Gubb what he was worth or release him. It is believed Gubb used the words ‘Pay me or Release Me’ to his manager to pass onto the Warriors.

It is understood that a host of Clubs are very interested in Gubb’s services, including, Cronulla Sharks, NQ Cowboys, Newcastle Knights and the Melbourne Storm.

Leed Rhinos and St Helens are two big power houses from the English Super League who have flagged interest in Gubb also.

Gubb’s preference is to remain in the NRL, but is open to a move to England to be paid his worth!
