SYDNEY, May 8 AAP - North Queensland co-captain Matt Scott wants all eyes on Greg Inglis at ANZ Stadium on Friday night.

The Cowboys prop will run out for his 150th NRL match against South Sydney but he wants little fuss made of the milestone.

Instead, Scott has demanded his eighth-placed side match the Rabbitohs for enthusiasm to have any chance of tasting victory for the first time since 2006 at the Sydney venue.

The 27-year-old, who re-signed at the start of the year until 2017, wants all the focus on becoming only the second team to take down Souths this season.

"I've tried to keep it pretty quiet actually," Scott said on Wednesday.

"I think this is a big enough game without having any more distractions.

"I'm very proud to have played them all at one club. It would've been good if it had been at home. But you can't ask for much more. This will be the biggest game of the year for us."

While praising the mobility of the Rabbitohs' monster pack, Scott not surprisingly said keeping a close watch on his Queensland teammate Inglis is vital to the Cowboys' chances.

"He's been in great form," said Scott.

"He's a bit of an indication of where they're going on the field.

"So we've got to have eyes up for him. Whenever he touches the ball you've got to move forward hard against him."

Six North Queensland players will attend teammate Alex Elisala's funeral on Thursday and Scott has admired the way the youngsters in the squad have dealt with the tragic death of the promising under 20s player.

"Particularly last week - guys like Michael Morgan, Ray Thompson and some of the younger guys in our squad that were really close to Alex," said Scott.

"It's a pretty big deal to go through that... (and it) showed a lot of character."
