18-match wining streak? And bang

Outgoing NSW skipper Paul Gallen says hes ready to end his State of Origin career, but is not going to buckle under pressure and stand down from game three. Pete Rose Jersey .Gallen is facing calls to step aside from the July 13 match at ANZ Stadium following the Blues series-losing defeat in Origin II.He admits the criticism, including from former coach Phil Gould who labelled the NSW leadership group as selfish, had muted the emotion around his 24th and final Origin appearance.Theres been a lot of pressure the past couple of weeks, and its sort of ... taken the focus off that, he told the Nine Networks Sunday Footy Show.Im ready for it to be finished.Im happy to be finishing up.Gallen revealed he had spoken to Blues senior management about whether they still wanted him to play.They said to me `just be careful, if youre ging to pull out, whats the reason? Is it convenience so you dont cop the criticism or is it because you dont think youre good enough any more?They all said they think theres a role for me to play there so I wont be standing down and fingers crossed I get picked.Gallen was at a loss to explain why NSW continued to be on the back foot against Queensland, unsure whether ringing in more changes was the answer.He said the likes of Jack Bird, Tyson Frizell, Bryce Cartwright and James Tedesco could carry the Blues into the future, but noted there was no obvious successor to hooker Robbie Farah.He believes James Maloney remains the in-form playmaker of the competition, while injured Queensland superstar Billy Slater claims Mitchell Pearce is the best option for NSW in the halves. Billy Hamilton Jersey .
