NSW aims for Origin whitewash

Aap
Friday, June 20, 2014

SYDNEY - Fresh from sealing a first State of Origin series win in nine years, Laurie Daley and his NSW backroom staff will begin plotting a first whitewash over Queensland since 2000.

Daley became only the second man after Wayne Pearce to captain and coach the Blues to a series victory with Wednesday's 6-4 win in a bad-tempered contest in front of more than 84,000 fans at ANZ Stadium.

The 44-year-old insisted he was determined to enjoy the moment of ending the Maroons' nine-year stranglehold, but said he would start focusing on game three later in the week.

"Our guys deserve to enjoy the moment. I am so happy for these blokes to get to experience what so many people have for NSW.

"This team will always be remembered as the team that stopped this great Queensland team."
