New South Wales coach Laurie Daley has cautioned his side against getting carried away after Wednesday  nights win in the Origin opener in Brisbane.

The Blues side, lead by rampant prop Andew Fifita outmuscled the much vaunted Maroons to take a one nil series lead and trigger talk of the beginning of a new era of New South Wales dominance.

Fifita’s performance was described in some quarters as reminiscent of the legendary Arthur Beetson but Daley (pictured) was quick to down play such comments as unhelpful of the Blues cause.
