NSW league players staying at The Star casino won't have restrictions placed on them.

The NSWRL have defended their decision to base the NSW State of Origin side at The Star casino ahead of game two, playing down any chance of player misbehaviour.

For the first time during coach Laurie Daley's reign, the Blues will set up camp in Sydney, with the team to train out of Leichhardt Oval and to stay at The Star in Pyrmont.

NSWRL chief executive Dave Trodden said the players wouldn't have restrictions put on their movements and trusted them not to get into strife.

This is despite The Star being the site of several player indiscretions over the last few years and gambling and drinking being easily accessible.

"We're totally confident and we wouldn't be there if we weren't," Trodden said.
