Coach Laurie Daley considered recalling Mitchell Pearce to the NSW side for State of Origin III but opted not to because he didnt want to expose the Sydney Roosters star to being the Blues fall guy once again.

Matt Moylan has been recalled to the Blues side, with the Penrith captain to battle it out with Jack Bird to play alongside James Maloney in the Blues halves.Pearce has often borne the brunt of criticism following a Blues series loss and that was again the case last year as NSW failed to defend the Origin shield.We considered a couple of guys but Mitch has only had that one game back and it has been a stop-start year for him so I thought it was better to leave him alone, let him concentrate on his club and finish his year off strongly, Daley said.We did consider him but I dont want to put too much pressure on Mitch. He has been the fall guy for a number of years and I dont want to put him in that situation again, given it is a limited preparation. That is just me. I want to protect people.Due to his suspension for his Australia Day antics Pearce had little chance to put forward a case for Origin representation this year and Reynolds made his interstate debut in game one and followed that up in game two.Pearce suffered a calf injury three games after returning from suspension and has only played four in total this season.However with South Sydney star Reynolds sidelined as he continues to battle with the shoulder injury he suffered in game two, Pearce was an option for Daley.Daley spoke to Pearce earlier this year but didnt consult him ahead of game three.I havent spoken to Mitch but he is a guy who at his best is a tremendous player, Daley said.But with a limited preparation I didnt want to put too much pressure on him.

World Peace co-wrote the episode in which he starred, helping come up with a fictional story about a relationship with a vision-impaired boy that inspired his name change.World Peace discussed his interests in acting, coaching and more in a recent conversation with ESPN.com.Tell me about your experience filming The 5th Quarter and working with producer OBB Pictures.Metta World Peace: It was a great opportunity to get back into acting and pursue my career in acting and entertainment. The 5th Quarter was an opportunity because it was a huge platform with go90. I thought it was a really good opportunity just for me to be on the big screen and get closer to the thing Ive always been interested in doing, which is feature films and sitcoms and stuff.Did you enjoy doing comedy?MWP: Comedy, drama, the genre doesnt matter. For me, as long as Im having fun, thats what is important. Comedy is great. People get a chance to laugh, and I love when people laugh.You mentioned acting aspirations. Is this something you want to do full time when you finish up with basketball?MWP: Not full time, but I want to do a lot of it, though. If I need a month to shoot a movie, I can do that. Its all about the opportunities that are presented. I dont look at it as full time. I look at it as fun.What interests you about acting?MWP: Its an easy decision to want to be an actor. Any childs dream is to be on TV. Now that Im older, its something that still interests me. ... Ill do any role. It doesnt really matter. As long as the production is good and the writing is good, Im in.I understand youve also kind of dipped your toe in the coaching waters. Are you going to be the first coach/actor in the history of the NBA?MWP: Well, hmmm. I dont know, because I havent quit playing. Maybe there might be a coach out there right now who gets there before me, so Im not sure. But I definitely want to get into coaching one day.What makes you think coaching is a career path that would be a good fit for you?MWP: When you get a chance to be around something that youre going to watch on TV anyway, I mean, thats just a great opportunity. Im going to watch basketball regardless of whether I coach or watch it on TV. Same thing with boxing and same thing with football. When you get a chance to be up and close to it, when you get a chance to contribute, thats just whats really fun about it.Are you interested in coaching at the NBA leveel? Ive heard that you might actually want to coach high school ball. Nike Free RN Sale. MWP: I did high schools [in 2014-15]. I was the assistant coach at Palisades High School [outside of Los Angeles], boys and girls. We actually won a championship. It really dont matter what level, but I definitely want to get into it. Preferably the ultimate goal is to be a professional head coach one day.Do you feel as if youre making the transition into coaching right now with your role with the Lakers?MWP: Not really. I dont like to jump the gun too much. I like to stay in the moment. Im just making sure Im ready to play. Im not thinking about coaching right now. Im just thinking about staying ready.Whats it like to play for a head coach who is younger than you and who came into the league when you were already established? You had four seasons of experience when Luke Walton was drafted.MWP: Its good. Luke had a nice career, a long career, won two championships. With that being said, I think that he transitioned well. He was a coach as a player anyway, so it only made sense for him to coach.The Lakers are winning more than a lot of people anticipated they would this early in the rebuilding process. Why do you think Walton has been able to reach guys like DAngelo Russell and some other young guys on that roster?MWP: A lot of the guys who said the Lakers were not going to win, those guys have never been champions. They never played. Luke is a champion. If youve never been a champion, you dont know what it takes. Luke knows what it takes. Thats why a lot of the guys that are saying the Lakers wont do anything, they dont really understand. Luke knows what it takes to win.What makes him successful as a head coach?MWP: His will and his heart. A lot of people dont have that will to get him over the top. Luke is constantly teaching. Were always getting better every single day. I just want to learn more and more. Luke is teaching me a lot also. ... Im still learning about cutting, Im learning about timing. Its been great for me to learn from such a great coach like Luke. Hes definitely going to be in the Hall of Fame. I can see him in the Hall of Fame, absolutely, one day.You mentioned there might be a guy who beats you to the coach/actor category. Luke Walton seems like a pretty cool dude, and hes there in Hollywood. Do you think he has acting potential?MWP: Youd have to ask him. I dont even know if he wants to do Hollywood. I know hes really focused on coaching.What about Rick Carlisle? You played for him in Indiana. Could you see maybe Carlisle teaming up with Jim Carrey?MWP: I dont think Rick Carlisle is into acting. Hes into coaching. Rick Carlisle is an Xs and Os guy, but hes the type to tell jokes when nobody else wants to tell jokes. Or maybe everybody else wants to tell jokes, and hes not ready to tell jokes. But I definitely dont think hes into acting.
