    Even more alarming is that in those 24 games, NSW has scored only 20 points plus 3 times, and only once did it result in a win....and that was a "dead rubber".

    As for who should be sacked -

    Pearce : No try assists / line breaks / line break assists / forced line drop outs in ANY of the three games. He has regressed as a halfback in rep games.

    Hoffman : Does not really threaten QLD at all. Good club player though.

    Woods : He is only young and he might get a 2nd chance, but he was DOMINATEd by QLD

    Fulton : As a selector he has alot to answer for.

    Fulton and Pearce, but I think Pearce's position in the side is more vital to success than a selector. Most of the teams selections have generally been ok, only been a few clangers in the 8 years.

    Pearce though is woeful.

    pearce and maloney

    honestly, from what i remember pearce has only had decent club seasons with carney or sbw next to him otherwise he is trash

    Carney is by far the best half (7 or 6) in NSW
    Reynolds has easily the best kicking game in NSW and should get the 7.

    Maloney / Pearce had the worst record in the NRL for repeat sets through kicks.

    Pearce is an accurate kicker though, manages to hit slaters chest comfortably.

    What killed them last night though was the failure to take the two from penalties when on offer.

    Blind Freddy Fittler should have the yellow jumper taken from him, worse than Lance Armstrong for not recognising Inglis was on one leg. Instead of having Jennings again made look silly on the left by Hodges and Tate all traffic should've been going right where Greg was as mobile as the Titanic.

    Only one change is needed. Remove this root cause of every single one of NSW's losses and you'll be surprised at how everything will fall into place again.

    Who is he? None other than Bob 'Bozo' Fulton.

    Merritt was a terrible selection. Woods deserved a crack but he lacks aggression.
