‘Not Clear Who Needs The Ball’: Ryan Girdler’s Big Issue With NSW Combinations, James Tedesco’s Role

Blues and Panthers great Ryan Girdler believes Brad Fittler will need to figure out the combinations between his two playmakers and skipper James Tedesco following the Blues’ 26-18 Game I loss to the Maroons.


Girdler explained why he believes Tedesco, the Blues fullback, found himself in positions during Game I where he was the wrong guy receiving the ball.

“I’m yet to see the Jarome Luai, Nathan Cleary and James Tedesco combination work. I don’t think they’re in sync,” Girdler said on Triple M’s NRL coverage.

“There were a couple of times where Tedesco went into first receiver. I really don’t believe he should get into first receiver.”
