Not a fan of his but again got the job done , we had a good roster but simply played dumb and got out played from the start , they were beaten 10 minutes into the game it was only going to be buy how much .

Dump Daley , Bring in Andrew Johns , you could see his anger and frustration in game 2 , he could see what we needed to do and he would have got that message to the players ,

Not a fan of him, but he got the result.

But to say anyone could coach that team is simply rubbish. He has to contend with alot of ego's, powerbrokers and past players before he even gets to the team. That was no easy squad to manage either with so much new talent coming through.

Being a coach for rep teams has little to do with tactics, and more to do with preparation. Kev prepared Qld for game 3 perfectly and the players executed a perfect game plan.

Judging by some of the flaws of NSW on Wednesday, I'd say their preparation was simply poor. To go into a SOO match with no objective to shut down the best #9 in the game was laughable. Followed by not having a Plan B to gain meters if Qld bash your Props out of the game, Daley should be sacked!
Absolutely Daley should go, the no accountability for the game 2 choke was the sealer for me, just sweep it under the rug and move on, Daley whilst a great player is a poor coach, and if NSW hope to win sometime soon he is first to go.
There are a number of players who need the axe as well, but a decent coach would know that, as a true Weststigers supporter, I say there is always next year, we live in hope.

He's an overpaid spectator. When Smith, Slater and Cronk aren't in the team, we'll see how good he really is.

Your a tough crowd. I saw him interviewed on 360 last night with Laurie Daley not an ounce of gloating when there was plenty of opportunity to given how the series played out and how it was won, and if I was a player he comes across as the sort of man that I would respect and listen to. That is all.

Regardless what you think, he's a better coach than Loz, and that's all that has mattered in his role the last 2 years.
