    Maloney was blunt in his assessment of his sides performance, one that saw them let in four tries to one in a 22-6 defeat.

    “An occasion like this, mate it’s horrible,” said Maloney when interviewed by Brad Fitler.

    “You’re never gonna win a game with a performance like that.

    “To do it in a moment like this, it’s just horrible.”

    Maloney was visibly taken back by the result, suffering another series loss thanks to a hat trick bt Valentine Holmes and an opening half that saw them completely dominated and lucky to get away with a 12-point deficit at the break.

    “New South Wales deserve better, Laurie (Daley) deserves better,” he said.

    “It’s like playing reserve grade.”
