New South Wales selectors Bob McCarthy and Laurie Daley ready to quit By David Beniuk June 17, 2010 At least two of New South Wales' four State of Origin selectors are prepared to fall on their swords in the wake of the Blues' unprecedented fifth-straight series loss. Chairman Bob McCarthy and Country Origin coach Laurie Daley say they are ready to quit their posts if the sweeping review announced by NSWRL boss Geoff Carr recommends they do so. The Blues selection panel of McCarthy, Daley, Bob Fulton and Geoff Gerard have come under fire for NSW finding itself in Origin oblivion, with a massive player turnover in the past five years. "We do this solely for the love of the game, we don't get any money so we're getting kicked in the teeth for nothing," McCarthy said. "We do it a bit tough, we do it like the players and everyone else who is associated with it because we want to see NSW do well. "But, by the same token, if they want to get rid of us I'm quite prepared to step down. "It's an honorary job and if someone else wants to take my spot they can take it." McCarthy has been on representative football selection panels since 1994. Asked if he would step down, he said: "I don't know, I'm getting a bit long in the tooth ... we'll just take each case on its merits." Daley said he wasn't feeling pressured but was happy to move on. "If I'm no longer asked to do that role, I'm happy to stand aside," he said. " ... If they don't think we're doing it properly I think you give someone else a go. "You're disappointed, you get upset but it's not pressure. "Pressure's when you're in life-and-death situations." Regardless of whether the panel survives 2010, they will pick a team for game three this season. Whether they stick with the experienced campaigners who have lost the series or start from scratch with a young team featuring the likes of Jamal Idris, Josh Dugan and Todd Carney will be hotly debated. "Whenever we drop anyone the media are the first to jump on our backs so now you want us to drop people, you can't have both slices of the cake," McCarthy said. "I don't know whether we can improve that side. "It might be a different game in Sydney, they might relax a little bit and we can come home over the top like we did last year but let's think about it before everyone starts jumping to conclusions. "Let's see what's there after the dust has settled."
