Warriors chief executive Cameron George has spoken to Wests Tigers counterpart Justin Pascoe about the possibility of the two sides playing in Tamworth next season.
The conversation George had with Pascoe on Monday morning is part of his desire for the Warriors to "give back" to Tamworth, where they have been in isolation the past fortnight ahead of NRL season launch on May 28.
The Tigers have played an NRL game in Tamworth the past two seasons, with their clash against the Raiders in May cancelled because of the pandemic.
George - who spent several years in Tamworth as a young man working in the racing industry - said Pascoe enthusiastically welcomed the proposal for the sides to meet in Tamworth in 2021.
"He was all for that," George said. "They're the sort of wheels in motion I'm trying to put in place, to start thinking long term about getting back to the bush and helping out where we can - both in New Zealand and Australia."
The Warriors relocate to Gosford this week, where they will be based for the truncated NRL season.
George - who will speak to Tamworth businesses via webinar on Tuesday - described as "brilliant" the team's stay in the city.
He said: "The town, I've always [known] as a wonderful community. But in these circumstances, to see the way they've embraced an international organisation, has been amazing."
He added: "And to be able to host a team in their town and give them so much support, even though they can't touch them or see them, or anything like that, is amazing."
As a thankyou, the Warriors will wear Tamworth's 2340 postcode on their jerseys this season.
George said: "We'll be doing some stuff throughout the year as protocols start to relax a little bit. We might even be able to go there and have Mad Monday after we win the grand final ... A bit of boot scootin' and a bit of fun.
"We're definitely keen to do some community work throughout the year as a token of appreciation. Our community department is actually doing the Zoom class with one of your local schools."
The Warriors are struggling with a spat of injuries - their middle particularly weakened
On the weekend, George requested that the NRL allow the Warriors to loan players from other NRL clubs - given the restrictions they are under - but the request was denied.
George said: "It was understood that each case would be considered on its merits, which has been the case now. And we're just asking for it to be reconsidered with more information."
