Cartwright stands down from NSW coaching role

Jetstar Gold Coast Titans Coach John Cartwright has decided to stand down from his role as NSW Assistant Coach for the rest of the 2011 Origin series as he elects to focus solely on club football with the Titans.

Cartwright informed NSW Coach Ricky Stuart of his decision over the weekend, with the Jetstar Titans Coach saying he didn't feel comfortable leaving his side in its current predicament to join the NSW side which assembles in camp in Sydney today ahead of State of Origin 2.
