Queensland pair Brett Suttor and Chris Butler have been tapped as touch judges for Game II of Origin, backing up from the same roles in the Suncorp Stadium series opener last month.

Matt Cecchin and Gerard Sutton will again referee, while Bernard Sutton (senior review official) and Ben Galea (review official) will operate the NRL Bunker.

General Manager of Officiating Tony Archer said Cecchin and Sutton deserved to referee the second Origin encounter.
 
“Their performance in Game I was excellent and they have maintained their form in the NRL Premiership since then,” Mr Archer said.
 
“All officials have earned the right to retain their positions for this important game.
 
“I believe this is the right team to officiate in Game II.”

Referee: Matt Cecchin

Assist Referee: Gerard Sutton

Senior Review Official: Bernard Sutton
