New South Wales recorded their greatest ever Origin win at Suncorp Stadium on Wednesday night, defeating the Maroons 28-4 in the series opening match.

The Blues took a 12-4 lead into the break before piling on 16 unanswered points in the second half.

Gagai is expected to be available to play in the Knights' Friday night match against the Melbourne Storm at AAMI Park, however he will be further assessed once he links with the team in Melbourne.

Cronulla's Andrew Fifita was named game one's Man of the Match.
