Blues don't want to be whitewashed

It's been 18 months and 24 days since the Blues tasted victory in a state of origin rugby league match

They are considered underdogs when they take on Queensland at Lang Park in Brisbane tonight.

But the Blues captain Kurt Gidley is determined to avoid a Maroons clean sweep and says the New South Wales side shouldn't be under-estimated.

Gidley is expected to play but only with pain killers for his rib injury while Queensland says the flu won't stop Warriors captain Steve Price from playing.
