Mundine Creating More Noise, Rips NSW Coach Daley

NSW coach Laurie Daley has brushed aside comments made by boxer Anthony Mundine questioning his Aboriginal origins.

Mundine, who quit rugby league in 2000 to become a fighter, said ahead of his IBF middleweight world title defeat by Daniel Geale on Wednesday that the State of Origin coach has never proudly claimed his Aboriginal heritage.

However, Daley, who will coach the Indigenous All Stars team in next week's annual clash against the NRL All Stars in Brisbane, refused to get involved in a war of words with the former St George Illawarra and Brisbane star.

"For me, I know that 'Choc' was promoting his fight and he is a guy that I have never had an issue with," Daley said, at the ARL Commission's announcement of a multi-million dollar sponsorship deal with Holden on Thursday.

"What Anthony says and does I cannot control. I recognise him as a wonderful talent not only on a rugby league field and in a boxing ring.

"I have been around, I know who I am, I know where I am from and my family do as well."

Daley has succeeded Ricky Stuart as Blues coach as NSW bid to end Queensland's run of seven straight series losses.

He has already started preparations ahead of the series opener in Sydney in May, with an emerging Blues camp earlier this month, and is confident he can be the man to end the Maroons' dominance.

"I've done quite a bit of planning, but it is nothing like getting out there and getting the boys together and having training sessions," he said.

"We had an emerging Blues camp two weeks ago where he we had 22 players there.

"It was very well received and the players were exceptional and hopefully some of those may get an opportunity this year.

"It just gave them an opportunity to experience Origin and see what it's like and what I am like as a person and what they can expect from me and what I expect from them."

Good for Daley for just letting that pointless Mundine remark slide without a second thought. Mundine's still having a period over getting schooled by Geale :boxing:

So long, Mundine. Enjoy the fade into oblivion.
