North Queensland Cowboys rediscovered the winning habit last weekend with a victory over the Newcastle Knights and could be boosted by the return of Johnathan Thurston on Friday night.
A calf injury has kept Thurston on the sidelines and the sixth-placed Cowboys have enjoyed mixed fortunes during the absence of their talisman.
Should be pass a late fitness test and make the starting line up in Townsville, it will be a boost to the hopes of victory for a Cowboys side which has stayed in touch with the leaders and boast a 5-3 record from the opening two months.
The Eels are bidding for a third straight win, and while the performances may not have caught the eye in successive wins over Wests Tigers and in the derby against Penrith Panthers over the last two weeks, they have got the job done.
Despite sitting 10th on the ladder, victory on Friday night could see Parramatta leapfrog the Cowboys on the ladder.
The bad news for the Eels is their record in Townsville, where they have lost on the last five visits. The Cowboys have also won seven of the last nine head to heads during a dominant period between the sides.
With those stats, you have to favour North Queensland to cover the line in this one.
