NSW skipper Paul Gallen says he's humbled to be equalling Danny Buderus as most-capped Blues captain when he runs out in State of Origin II on Wednesday night.

Heading into representative retirement after the series, Gallen will run onto Suncorp Stadium for the final time in Origin when he leads the Blues down the tunnel for their must-win encounter in Brisbane.

"I only found out about that this morning and that's quite humbling and a little bit embarrassing when you compare myself to a legend like Danny Buderus - I think he won at least three series," Gallen said on Monday.
