Late NSW State of Origin call-up Josh Morris will only have one training session to hone his right-side combination with Blake Ferguson before Wednesday's series opener.

Josh Dugan's withdrawal on Sunday has given Morris and Ferguson little time to prepare for the enormous task of battling Queensland pair Greg Inglis and Corey Oates at ANZ Stadium.

"He trained Wednesday, Thursday (last week) and then he missed the weekend sessions but he'll have a run tomorrow and that'll be enough," said Blues coach Laurie Daley.
