NSW Blues Coach Fittler Under BIG Pressure



Embattled NSW Blues Coach Brad Fittler is under huge pressure having lost five of his past six games in charge and three of the past four series.

The former champion player is staring down the barrel of the NSW Blues’ first series whitewash in 13 years when the sides meet for a dead rubber on 12 July in Sydney.

NSW Rugby League will make a decision on Fittler’s future after ORIGIN III. Either Fittler will be sacked or under a radical new proposal, they will appoint a coaching director to assist Fittler.

The board is considering making that man former Dragons, Eels, Knights and Roosters coach Brian Smith, according to NINE Wide World of Sports.

Smith coached 679 first-grade games between 1984 and 2016 but hasn’t coached in the NRL since the Roosters sacked him in 2012.
