In Football, the practice of converting a solid centre back into a striker, thus transforming them into an unstoppable goal machine.
Named after the Sheffield Wednesday defender Paul Warhurst, who in 1993, was deployed as an emergency striker to replace the injured David Hirst and Mark Bright. The resulting move saw Warhurst score 12 goals in as many games and a call-up to the England National Squad as a striker.
Glory Hunter #1: "I see Fergie's got a bit of an injury crisis up front at the moment"
Glory Hunter #2: "Well, he could always stick Ferdinand up front and hope that he does a Warhurst"
Capello (in an Italian accent): "Terry, I told you to stay deep, what the hell are you doing up there?!"
Terry: "Sorry boss, but we're 3-0 down against San Marino, I'm doing a Warhurst"
