ILFRACOMBE product Matt Scott might be leading the Maroons charge towards eight straight Origin series win at Suncorp Stadium tonight, but he won't be the only Central Queenslander doing his part tonight.

Along with Matt, two of the region's up-and-coming young rugby league players will join forces with a trio of Rockhampton entertainers to help square up the series after the NSW Blues won Origin I 14-6.

Rocky starlet and Grease The Musical lead actress Gretel Scarlett will sing the Australian national anthem prior to kick-off, while local band Busby Marou, featuring Jeremy Marou and Tom Busby, will keep the crowd entertained during the half-time break.

Tonight's State of Origin II match starts at 8.10pm.
