Former Qld captain Gordon Tallis says Laurie Daley has been made the scapegoat for his players poor performances.

Daley was on Friday informed that his contract as Blues Origin coach wouldn’t be renewed after yet another defeat at the hands of Qld.

Speaking on Fox sports, Tallis (pictured) says with the Daley being the most successful New South Wales coach in many years, it’s the players that should wear the blame, not the coach.
