Gerard Sutton and Ben Cummins will referee the 2016 Holden State of Origin II at Suncorp Stadium next Wednesday, June 22.

General Manager of Officiating Tony Archer said Sutton and Cummins had officiated in the past five State of Origin matches and deserved to take charge in Game Two.

"I thought they both performed well in Game One and they’ve held their form in the NRL since then," Mr Archer said.

"They are the most proven referees at this level and they deserve to referee in Game Two. They are clearly the best officials for the job."

Referee: Gerard Sutton
Assist Referee: Ben Cummins
Touch Judges: Brett Suttor, Nick Beashel
