Paul Kent doubles down on claim that NSW coach Brad Fittler's success is largely due to luck Veteran rugby league reporter Paul Kent has doubled down on his claim that NSW coach Brad Fittler's State of Origin success can be largely chalked up to blind luck.

He believes Fittler's series victory last year was largely due to the fact Cameron Smith, Johnathan Thurston and Cooper Cronk retired. "Freddy luck," Kent called it.

Blackcaps coach Gary Stead has explained the decision to send Martin Guptill back out for the 'super over', despite his poor form.

As both teams had reached 241 during the regulation 50 overs, New Zealand was forced into the super over, which consists of six balls for each side. The side that hits the most runs wins the tied game.

Guptill had a poor tournament, including getting out for two golden ducks. During the final he was dismissed in the seventh over for 19.

"The guys came up, they'd had a chat on the field around it and I threw my two cents worth in as well there," Stead told The Project on Monday night.

"When we knew we needed 16 to win then we're probably talking about three boundaries so we thought, depending on which end they were going to bowl from, we wanted to have the hitting to the short end, that's why James Neesham took the strike there.

"Guppy was there also, not only because of his hitting power, but also his running between wickets. He's our quickest guy as well and we knew that twos were going to be important."

New Zealand needed to hit 16 off their super over, but Guptill was run out during his sprint to finish the match-winning run, leaving both teams tied and handing England their first men's Cricket World Cup victory.

Stead has praised Guptill and Neesham's performance during that final super over.

"I think the effort to get 15 itself when you're chasing in the final of a world cup is phenomenal in itself," he told The Project.

"I'm really really proud of how our guys played in the final but also the way we held ourselves afterwards."

Ellyse Perry notched another Test century, but day two of the Women's Ashes Test failed to inspire. But with Tests so few and far between for these players, Geoff Lemon writes, can you blame them for being a little cagey?
