A large degree of publicity has been given to the position of Queensland State of Origin coach following the team�s lacklustre performance in the third match of this year�s series.
The simple fact that needs to be reinforced is that the Queensland Rugby League has not yet begun to address the management structure and personnel for 2006.
While it is reasonable to state that we must have a Queenslander as coach, it remains to be seen whether we can secure the services of a suitable person who reaches the requirements.
Certainly if there is a credentialed Queenslander who is available and the QRL board considers that they can lead Queensland to a series win, they will be invited and appointed.
