The Eels and Cowboys have without doubt been the two major disappointments this season – who will cast that to the side and emerge with the two points in Darwin on Saturday night?
After finishing in the top four last season, the Eels have endured a nightmare campaign in 2018, winning just two games and coming off a last-start 30-4 thumping to reigning wooden spooners Newcastle.
Mitchell Moses and Will Smith picked up injuries and will be out for multiple weeks, while Peni Terep and Bevan French are also under some doubt due to concussion. Twelve points off the top eight, the season is all but over for the Eels, and they don’t look like turning their fortunes around anytime soon.
It’s not much better for the Cowboys at the moment, but they still have a better chance of challenging for the eight – although they will have to go on the mother of all runs to do so.
After reaching the Grand Final last season, many (myself included) tipped the Cowboys – with the return of Johnathan Thurston – to go one step further in 2018 and secure a second premiership.
But North Queensland simply haven’t got going all season, lining up in Round 14 with just eight points to their tally – and eight points adrift of the top eight.
However, they did post an impressive 26-12 away win over fellow strugglers Manly last week, and if they are to have any chance of making the finals, this is a game they simply cannot lose. The Eels are a basket case at the moment, so thankfully for the Cowboys, they should be able to win this – perhaps fairly comfortably as well.
Jarryd Hayne is back from injury at centre for the Eels, while Corey Norman also returns in the halves in place of Mitchell Moses. Tim Mannah is back from a fractured eye socket, while Reed Mahoney will make his NRL debut off the bench.
Michael Morgan, Gavin Cooper and Coen Hess have all been named to back up from Origin for the Cowboys, while Matt Scott is also back from suspension.
