    Will NSW have a new coach ? Will NSW clean out all the deadwood and pick the best side - one fullback - 2 centres etc etc ? Will NSW pick on form ?

    Will NSW win even one game ?

    I've said it before and I'll say it again; I don't blame Pearce and Maloney, they are best two halves available. Who else is there? A Reynolds? Hardly. Although Maloney in particular was pretty ordinary today, I thought. Pick two centres in the centre positions and (maybe) get another coach. NSW never looked like scoring a try against QLD's defence. One hopeful kick and a very good take from Dugan was as good as it got. You really have to work hard to score a try against that defence. By contrast, Wallace scored a try that you or I could have scored.

    The usual suspects - Freddie, Joey and all the gang.

    I'd like to see a Coach get the job. A coach who has coached at the top level - not an ex-footie player who has played SOO. Not necessarily full time - but we could approach Bellamy, Sticky, Hasler, but not one of the "boys".

    I just hope whomever they already have in mind actually picks form players in the position they are actually in form in.
    It doesn't matter if you have three brilliant fullbacks, just pick one of them at FB and not all three to put 2 into other spots that can be filled by in form players who already play that position week in and week out.

    Brad Fitler to coach the Blues.

    A good idea or more of the same ? I have a feeling its the latter.

    We will have to wait and see who actually has the power to select the team but the odds are NSW will continue to use the same selection criterior as usual.

    I just don't see it's about selection. Who are these talented candidates that have previously ignored by the Blues?
