NSW right-side pairing Blake Ferguson and Josh Dugan have urged that their preparations remain much the same as they did heading into Game One, despite a raft of changes in the Queensland Origin outfit ahead of next week's clash at ANZ Stadium.

An expected new left-edge Maroons combination - set to include fullback-turn-centre Darius Boyd - has the VB Blues duo on notice, though not alarmed.

"We're just focussing on us, controlling what we can control, and that's getting ourselves right," Ferguson says.

"We're not looking too much as who's where for them, it's more about making sure we're just ready for whatever they throw at us." 

Dugan echoed the sentiments of his outside man, while also speaking of the side's preparations at large, leading into next week's Origin II.
