THE 'Hayne Plane' was the big attraction at the Coffs Harbour Airport as the Blues jetted out for Sydney determined to clinch an historic State of Origin series win.

On light training duties for most of the week with a corked thigh, Hayne hit the training ground in full flight during the Blues weekend ball work sessions.

He and the team are set to undergo the all-important captain's run ahead of Wednesday night's massive Origin match-up at ANZ Stadium.

"It's going to be tough, it's an Origin game, so they're definitely going to be throwing everything at us," Hayne said.

"Whoever they pick, we're going to be ready.

"We know they're going to be a different team come game two.

"They're still a great team with great players.

"This game comes down to us now, that's all we have to worry about."

Whatever the outcome on Wednesday night, the squad will make their way back to the Coffs Coast to prepare for Origin Game III at Brisbane's Suncorp Stadium, on July 9.
