New South Wales have turned to former Blues legend Peter Sterling to reverse their flailing State of Origin fortunes.
The NSWRL on Friday announced Sterling as coach Laurie Daley's new adviser for next year's Origin series, replacing long-time confidant Bob Fulton.
"I am absolutely thrilled to have someone of Peter Sterling's calibre take up such an important role with New South Wales Rugby League," said Daley on Friday.
