Anthony Gelling


Recommended Posts

I don't know how much substance there is in this as I've not seen anything elsewhere.

However, the significance of May 12th next year could well decide on decisions by clubs, Wire included.

This whole thing makes me uncomfortable. I'm not sure why a Warrington Wolves official should be in court with him. 

I find that unsavoury. 

 

Same, I liked the guy when he was playing for Widnes. But it's massively concerning. 

I was born to run a club like this. Number 1, I do not spook easily, and those who think I do, are wasting their time, with their surprise attacks.

Why wouldn't they be in court with him ?

Regardless of whether they or anybody else thinks he's guilty he is an employee of the club and the club has a duty of care to their employees.

The fact Warrington want rid of him now suggests they suspect he will lose his court case and they would end up sacking him  after May anyway, and they don't want the clubs reputation being dragged through the mud by the press by him still being an employee.

Any other club considering signing him must be completely mad

Or because he’s likely to be third or fourth choice and they think the money that goes on his wages could be better spent elsewhere.

Another thing that is best ignored.

That's a bit harsh, Tommy posts some good stuff occasionally.

It's a tricky one. I would have thought that Warrington would want something like this to be seen as a private matter for the player rather than something associated with the club.

But as another has pointed out, he is innocent until proved otherwise and so if the club see this as a duty of care for a player under difficult circumstances then fair enough.

The key will be what the club does if he is found guilty.

Plus they may also want to have some control over communications... e.g. journalist at the court case and what Gelling may say...

No, why on earth would his employer be with him in court? Mine certainly wouldn't be.

I can live with them playing him, as I understand the difficulty around all of this if he is found not guilty - but that doesn't mean we need to stand side by side with him in court. My employer certainly wouldn't do that. 

It is quite a public display of support when I would prefer us to stay out of the public side of this.

Spot on.

It isn't though, he has not been found guilty of anything, so he has his freedom and is playing Rugby for the club.

Innocent until proven guilty does not mean the club should be supporting him in court. We should be leaving it the justice system - supporting him as an employee shouldn't stretch to going to support him in court when he is on a GBH charge.

possibly for support, he doesn't have any family over here, looks like he shares a house with macgraff leuieai, his folks aren't here, and obviously the issue is with his missus, who also doesn't appear to be over here.

What has he done ? I must have missed something.

You obviously work for a company who doesn't give a s*** about the welfare of its employees then.

Mine certainly would if I ever found myself in that situation and asked for help
