There's been continual speculation that McFadden could be ousted in the wake of another disappointing season for the Warriors.

The Warriors chief executive Jim Doyle has denied there are moves afoot to replace McFadden saying they have faith in him.

Several names have been suggested in speculation out of Australia.

Two weeks it was former Warriors coach Ivan Cleary who's now at Penrith was supposed to be on his way back and now that speculation has turned to Kearney.

However Kearney, who's assistant coach to Wayne Bennett at the Brisbane Broncos, says the rumours are "100 percent not true".
