Paul Gallen has embodied NSW's desperate State of Origin crusade over the past eight years but he insists he won't be tempted to quit on a high should the Blues finally end the Queensland dynasty this year.

Blues skipper Gallen turns 33 in August and the neck injury he took from NSW's brave game one win at Suncorp Stadium is a reminder of how much punishment the Cronulla warrior has put his body through.

The whole-hearted forward may only have a couple of years left in the NRL, but he's dismissed the suggestion he could consider retiring from Origin should the Blues capitalise on their 1-0 lead and achieve the holy grail of a series victory this season.

Gallen says he won't be giving up his position without a fight, and while ever he's still playing for the Sharks he'll leave his Origin fate in the hands of selectors.
