With the minor premiership in their sights, Souths will look to continue their impressive form when they host the North Qld Cowboys.
The Cowboys had their colours lowered by the Panthers last week and face back to back away games at a ground that has been a graveyard for them over the years.
Souths have won the last 6 clashes against the Cowboys at this ground, with 4 of these clashes failing to surpass 40pts.
Since 1999 the Cowboys have managed just 5 wins from 35 matches at this venue, and coupled with a poor 2 wins from 11 matches on the road this season, their task appears extremely tough.
North Qld did defeat Souths 20-18 at home earlier this season, and the predicted slippery surface conditions may well keep things close for long periods throughout.
