The New South Wales Origin team is threatening to implode with reports that two players, Josh Dugan and Blake Ferguson  spent the Friday before Game Three drinking in a hotel.

The Blues went into the match hell bent on a win at Lang Park and a rare series win but were again found wanting when the game was on the line.

Former skipper Paul Gallen (pictured) says if the stories are true, its an indictment on the teams lack of culture.
