Wests CEO Justin Pascoe is blasted for taking a HOLIDAY during the Tigers’ miserable start to the season – with club desperate to put on a united front amid calls for coach Michael Maguire to be sacked

  • Justin Pascoe has been blasted for taking a holiday during the Tigers’ problems
  • Michael Maguire is under huge pressure after failing to win a game this season 
  • However, Wests CEO Pascoe is reportedly away in the Northern Territory
  • NRL 360’s Paul Kent labelled the trip a ‘bad move’ for a club supporting Maguire 

Justin Pascoe’s decision to take a holiday during the Tigers’ torrid start to the season has drawn criticism from NRL 360’s Paul Kent, with the club’s CEO blasted for his ‘bad move’.

Michael Maguire is under increasing pressure having overseen a terrible opening five games to the campaign, with the Tigers yet to register a win and rooted to the foot of the ladder.

Kent revealed on Fox Sports that Pascoe is currently in the Northern Territory on holiday while Maguire clings onto his job, a move which he says goes against the club’s desire to present a ‘unified front’.

‘Apparently he is in the Northern Territory for a couple of weeks to have a break,’ Kent said.

‘I am afraid to ask what he is doing by Round 10, he is in Disneyland maybe.

‘The fact is Justin Pascoe, and I like Justin, bad move, the club is trying to present a unified front, a one in, all in image.

‘But with the coach under so much pressure, the one thing he needed was his CEO standing by him.

‘Tim Sheens has spoken regularly about supporting Michael Maguire, if they are going to do that, they need to be there.

‘They can’t be off on holidays, if there is a big score this weekend and a big score the weekend after and he is still doing a lap around Ayers Rock, I mean seriously.’

Kent went onto compare Pascoe’s trip to similar incidents involving other NRL clubs, insisting that the latest saga provides a negative look for the club.  

‘This has happened before, remembered Scott Penn being criticised with Manly before when he was overseas… but he is the owner of the club, not running the club like a CEO,’ Kent said.

‘There is just a public perception that has got to be presented there that you are right their for the job.’

‘He has put a target on his head,’ host Braith Anasta added.
