Newcastle Knights head up to Townsville to take on North Queensland Cowboys tomorrow night.
These sides have met 30 times before with Knights just in front win 17 wins to the Cowboys 13, but the knights past 4 visits to the northern city has only produced 1 win.
Zane Tetevano could make a return after breaking his hand in the trial against Canberra in Tamworth. Tetevano has been named on an extended bench with one player to drop out.
Cowboys on paper have a good side with the 3 internationals in the forward pack and Thurston to lead them around the paddock, they will be a hard side to push over.
As a Knights fan I like to say the boys will win but Iím also a realist and I think the emotion of last weeks win will take its toll and the Cowboys will be too strong at home. In saying that I have only got 1 tip correct this week.
Will the Knights get up in Townsville, or will Thurston and co put on a show?
