Gallen's success dream

Aap
Wednesday, June 18, 2014

SYDNEY - NSW skipper Paul Gallen has thought about lifting the State of Origin shield every day for years.

No one has lost more Origin series than Gallen, who's endured the increasingly bitter taste of interstate defeat eight times.

After their epic 12-8 win in game one, NSW are in the box seat to finally end Queensland's unprecedented eight-year winning streak, and Gallen says it's something that's been on his mind for years.

"I have to be honest, I have thought about Origin every day for years now, it has been a huge goal of mine," Gallen said head today's game two at ANZ Stadium. "I have had a chequered Origin career, up and down, missing games and injuries and stuff like that.

"I try not to think about it. I try to think about what I have to do to get there, but I would be lying if I said I never thought about it (winning)."
