NRL: Canberra Raiders coach Ricky Stuart criticises State of Origin stand-down proposal

The Canberra Times

Canberra Raiders coach Ricky Stuart says it’s the clubs not the NRL who should decide whether players back up from State of Origin and their stand-down proposal was disrespectful towards coaches.

The NRL and Rugby League Players’ Association were reportedly in discussions over forcing players to be stood down in the round immediately after Origin.

  1. That is bullshit. I have always said the clubs are the loosers in origin and the NRL should start looking at having them at seasons end so the clubs have their star player that they pay the wages for.
