Online bookmaker tomwaterhouse,com is betting on the question about which every Australian rugby league fan is talking - what will Blues coach Ricky Stuart be doing this time next year? ...
Although there are reports linking Stuart to many National Rugby League clubs, including Parramatta ($4), Canberra ($5) and Sydney ($7), New South Wales is the $2 favourite to retain his services.
"Ricky has lived and breathed Origin for two years and I don't think he'll leave the job until the Blues have won another series," said Tom Waterhouse, Managing Director of tomwaterhouse.com.
"It's inevitable Ricky will return to the NRL but I'm betting it'll be later rather than sooner. All the coaches he's being tipped to replace are under contract. He's evens to stick with New South Wales.
"People say if you can't beat them, join them but, even if the Maroons flog the Blues next week, I can't see Ricky coaching Queensland. Anyone who thinks he'll cross the divide can have $1001".
The Maroons are the $1.62 favourites for Origin III in Brisbane. New South Wales is $2.30 to win at Suncorp Stadium and clinch its first Origin series since Stuart's first stint as Blues coach.
