Saturday, November 25, 2017

NSW Blues legend Brad Fittler has been entrusted with the task of turning the tide against Queensland after winning the race to the State of Origin coaching job.

Fittler was announced as Laurie Daley's successor in Sydney yesterday morning with a two-year deal, beating former South Sydney premiership-winning coach Michael Maguire to the position.

The Blues have lost 11 of the past 12 Origin series.

The former Panthers and Roosters international has become adept in preparing teams in a short period of time given his accomplishments with City Origin and most recently with Lebanon in the World Cup.
