Des Hasler Rejected NSW State Of Origin Coaching Job, According To Reports
The Grill Team's Matty Johns says Wayne Bennett, Des Hasler and John Cartwright have all been approached to coach the NSW State Of Origin team, despite Eels' Ricky Stuart being overlooked because he is now employed as a full-time NRL coach.
"Unbelievable, really isn't it!?" said Mark "MG" Geyer.
Johns says Hasler had the good sense to reject the offer given what he's achieving with the Dogs.
"I think most coaches who coach NRl have got to be cautious. When Mal Meninga was approached five or six years ago .. he was a coach out in the wilderness and he put all his heart and effort into coaching the Queensland team," said MG, before adding that is why NSW needs a non-NRL coach to lead the Blues.
