Maroons coach Kevin Walters has defended his Blues counterpart Laurie Daley as the fallout continues following the 2016 State of Origin series.

Daley has finally spoken this week after the Series loss and says he takes much of the blame for the cultural problems that beset the Blues side as they prepared for the series decider at Lang Park.

Walters (pictured) says its unfair that all the focus has been on the Blues inability to win the series with Queensland once again just too good.
