NSW planning to put brakes on Maroons flier

THE Maroons are bursting at the seams with game-breaking talent.

There is Melbourne's "Big Three" and their ability in attack to methodically pick apart opposition defences.

Add debutant Cameron Munster into the mix and you have the same Storm spine that clinically dismantled the Broncos a week ago.

But come Wednesday night Blues bash brothers Aaron Woods and David Klemmer will have eyes for one man: Dane Gagai.

The Maroons winger might not have the profile of his teammates but the Blues NSW enforcers know he's been Queensland's best so far and to limit him is to limit his influence on the outcome in next week's decider.

"He's played really well for them and he's been their biggest threat," Klemmer said.

"He gets their sets going and he scores their points and we have to come out and try to contain him.

"He's very dangerous and he won them the game the other night."
