    coach Kevin Walters is intent on sending the retiring NSW skipper off as a sore
    loser.On Monday Gallen said Queenslanders lacked humility during their run of 10
    from 11 State of Origin series wins, pointing the finger at the publics attitude
    - and a few players as well.But Walters put the claims down to banter and said
    hed be concentrating on delivering a rare cleansweep for Queensland in Corey
    Parkers final match for the Maroons.NSW will want to send him (Gallen) off on a
    high note - Queensland have a different opinion on his send off, Walters said.We
    have a guy riding off into the sunset too - Corey Parker.Walters did not believe
    Gallen had been disrespectful to Queensland but admitted the Maroons would still
    have the prop in their sights in game three.I think he has showed respect over
    his time towards Queensland players, he said.We havent spoken about it (Gallens
    comments) too much.We are respectful of what Paul can bring.He is who we have to
    stop if we want to get across the line.Veteran lock Parker will play his 19th
    and final Origin on Wednesday night.Walters hoped to send Parker off a winner
    but admitted he had no experience in sealing an Origin whitewash.I have never
    been involved in a 3-0 series - it is foreign territory for me, said Walters,
    who played 20 Origins for Queensland.It will be a big ask for our guys.The last
    time Queensland won 3-0 was in 2010.Walters has the chance to become just the
    third Origin coach in history to clinch a whitewash in his first year, joining
    NSWs Ron Willey (1986) and Queenslands Paul Vautin (1995).I have spoken to
    players who were involved in that (1995) series, Walters said.About half (of the
    current side) have done the whitewash but saying it is different to doing it.It
    will be a brutal start looking at the NSW pack.They will be all systems go again
    in game three, we have to combat that.Prop Nate Myles - a veteran of 30 Origins
    - will return to the starting side from a knee injury.But it wasnt Queenslands
    pack that Walters was worried about.The rookie Maroons mentor hoped Queenslands
    backline finally fired in game three.Greg Inglis (17) and Darius Boyd (16) are
    Origins top two try scorers but have failed to cross the line this season in a
    worrying drought.I know we can get better, Walters said of their attack.

    night, Paul MacLean told reporters that "theres a lack of focus, theres a lack
    of leadership and theres a lack of preparation" with his struggling team. That

    . From filmmaker Nanette Burstein (On the Ropes), The
    Price of Gold revisits the saga that rocked the figure skating world ahead of
    the 1994 Lillehammer Olympic Winter Games: the assault on Nancy Kerrigan, and
    the plot that led its way back to her rival Tonya Harding. NEW YORK -- Nick
    Kyrgios is confident of making a big splash in the Big Apple, but his
    first-round opponent here, Britains Aljaz Bedene, believes the Australian could
    be the architect of his own downfall Tuesday at the US Open.The volatile
    21-year-old is coming off a second-round exit at Cincinnati, where his temper
    flared as he smashed three rackets in a row during a defeat to Borna
    Coric.Either he can play great tennis or he can go down. He is his biggest
    enemy, said Bedene, the Slovenian-born British No. 3, ahead of their
    match.Kyrgios, who said in a recent interview with the New York Times magazine
    that he wants to quit the sport at the age of 27, is also known for a signature
    tweener trick shot through his legs..dddddddddddd.Its not easy because it gets
    quite entertaining. Its funny, Bedene added. It gets interesting, as a player
    you want to enjoy the match. All those different emotions going through and then
    a player is playing tricks.Its not easy to stay focused, but you have to try to
    play the best you can.The best players always take advantage. You have to stay
    focused and you know those games and those points will come. You just have to
    grab them.Should Kyrgios win his first two matches at Flushing Meadows, he could
    face a potential third-round match against fellow Australian Bernard Tomic. ' '
