Rugby league players consistently perform unbelievably athletic feats on the field. Whether that be fearlessly launching themselves at defensive lines or soaring through the air to score a try in the corner; stretching out an arm from what appears to be the first row of seats.

Laurie Daley is undecided as to whether he wants to coach NSW beyond 2017, but accepts the choice will be made for him if he can’t lead the Blues to State of Origin success next year.
