NSW desperate for Origin secrecy
20:18 AEST Tue May 22 2012

State of Origin paranoia reached fever pitch on Tuesday night with NSW officials going to extraordinary lengths to ensure their final training session remained private.

A pair of fans clad in Queensland jumpers watching on from an empty bar were removed from the premises.

Media kept waiting for 40 minutes were also asked to leave after just a few minutes of the session, with coach Ricky Stuart desperate to keep his tactics behind closed doors.

A team spokesman said all players completed the session unscathed.
