Rugby league nice Phil Gould believes Paul Green will coach his final recreation for the Maroons on Wednesday “regardless of the result”, with an absence of management to ship him into Origin exile.
Having been outscored 76-6 within the first two video games of the collection, Green is out to keep away from Queensland’s first collection sweep since 2000 within the collection finale.
With Green’s future clouded past this yr, Gould highlighted a lot of points, together with a lacklustre press convention following the Game Two loss, which can in the end come down on the previous Cowboys premiership-winning coach.
“They will be making a change, he won’t be going around next year,” Gould instructed Nine’s 100% Footy. “I can’t see that being possible regardless of the result in Game Three.
“I feel the entire Queensland camp picks, the best way they carried themselves. Even the best way behaved after Game Two – he and the captain, there was simply no positivity from them in any way.
“He didn’t show leadership to me. I’ve got nothing against Paul, he’s a great coach and a premiership-winning coach, but he’s just handled this assignment really badly and you can’t do it at this level, you’ve got to get it right.”
Gould, probably the most profitable NSW Blues coach in historical past with six Origin collection wins, was requested if whether or not legendary fullback Billy Slater could be the precise repair to tackle the pinnacle teaching duties of the Maroons.
The query was put ahead to Gould following strategies Slater was beforehand sounded out for the function earlier than it was subsequently handed to Green.
Gould stated if Slater was to tackle the pinnacle teaching job of the Maroons, then “he would have to have others involved with him.”
“Origin, particularly for Queensland, invites successful ex-players to come back and do the job,” Gould stated.
“They’re a group, they all pitch in and they will all put their shoulder to the wheel and support him.
“It would not actually matter whether or not it is Wayne Bennett, Mal Meninga or Paul Vautin… it would not matter who coaches Queensland, they’ve at all times received the help of everybody else round them.
“The New South Wales coach at times can be very isolated, but Queensland, it’s always a group effort.
“No one is aware of Origin in addition to Billy Slater, it is whether or not or not the nuances of making ready a staff over per week and bringing them in for the competition – whether or not or not he will get all that proper, however he can have loads of help round him.
“He wouldn’t do it on his own, he would have to have others involved with him.”
The dialogue surrounding Green’s substitute did not sit nicely with former Blues captain Paul Gallen, who claims the Maroons coach has been unfairly handled.
Gallen’s feedback led to a backwards and forwards between him and Gould, during which the latter doubled down on his unique feedback, revealing Green’s controversial determination to pick teenager Reece Walsh in Game Two is one other key purpose why he won’t stay within the function.

Gallen: “I think they’re (Queensland) forgetting who they’re playing against. They’re playing against probably the best New South Wales’ side we’ve seen. I think everyone’s been a little bit harsh [on Paul Green]. You have a look at the cattle he’s working with and the cattle he’s playing against.”
Gould: “They haven’t handled it well.”
Gallen: “I don’t care who’s coaching, put Billy Slater there, put Cameron Smith there. It doesn’t matter who’s coaching, I don’t think the results change.”
Gould: “I don’t think the results would have changed, but there have been things within the champ that haven’t been well handled, they haven’t been professional at all. You can’t deny that. I will go back to the selection of young Reece Walsh for the second game, it was just a terribly weak act from the leadership team. The way he performed at the press conference after Game Two, just smacked of a bloke who is totally out of his depth at that level.”
Gallen: “Billy Slater is a selector isn’t he? Wouldn’t Billy have been a part of that decision?”
Gould: “I don’t know what Billy does with the Queensland side.”
