The Board of the New South Wales Rugby League has today announced NSW Blues legend Brad Fittler as the coach of the 2011 Bailey Ladders City Origin team for their annual clash against Country.

This year's match will be contested at Lavington Sports Ground in Albury on Friday, May 6, with both teams playing for pride of the state and a shot at a NSW State of Origin jersey.

NSWRL General Manager, Geoff Carr, said Fittler is a terrific fit for the role.
