Country coach Laurie Daley is online bookmaker tomwaterhouse's hot favourite to succeed Ricky Stuart as the man in charge of the New South Wales team for next year's State of Origin.

At odds of $1.50, Daley is rated three times more likely than Phil Gould ($4.50) to fill the void that Parramatta created by hiring Stuart. Gould is the most successful Blues coach with six series wins.

Also in the market are former Blues players Trent Barrett ($8), Brad Fittler ($11) and Jim Dymock ($34), while tomwaterhouse.com is offering odds of $101 that a Queenslander gets the job.

"City versus Country may not be a legitimate State of Origin trial for the players these days but surely it is for the coaches," said Tom Waterhouse, Managing Director of tomwaterhouse.com.

"A former New South Wales captain, Loz has served his Origin coaching apprenticeship as coach of the Country side since 2008 and he's willing to quit his media jobs to be Sticky's successor.

"Gus has got his hands full turning around Penrith on and off the field, City coach Freddy has less representative coaching experience than Loz and Trent has no senior coaching experience at all.

"I suppose if a Kiwi can coach the Wallabies then a Cane Toad can coach the Cockroaches but I'm betting $101 the New South Wales Rugby League appoints anyone who's a Queenslander."
