Oh fucking hell, is that a fucking Maroons shirt already?!? If you can't beat 'em join 'em eh Loz!
His head coaching CV includes five games at the helm for Country Origin (two wins), and three games in charge of the Indigenous All Stars (one win). Despite a lack of coaching experience and success, and the fact that no Blues fan holds any hope for the next two years, Daley remains optimistic. “I think I know what is required. Phase one is working together as a team. Phase three is winning the Origin series."
Former Maroons halfback Allan Langer praised the decision. “I know Laurie is still very passionate about the NSW side and he'll do a very good job,” he said, trying to stifle a cheeky chuckle.
A regular in the commentary box for Foxsports, Daley has shown great insight into the game of rugby league, particularly with classic predictions like "the team who comes out and scores the most points in this game will win", "what a competition we have, on any given day 1st can beat 16th" and on Origin, "New South Wales will need to score tries if they are going to beat Queensland".
Daley reportedly beat out the actively job-seeking pair of Stephen Kearney and Nathan Brown for the position.
