Knights: Joseph Leilua is still in some doubt after battling a throat problem in recent weeks, but Darius Boyd and Beau Scott are likely to back up from Origin.
Cowboys: North Queensland has lost Queensland veterans Brent Tate to an ACL injury and Matt Scott to a fractured cheekbone, with both set to spend extended periods on the sidelines. Curtis Rowe is the frontrunner to replace Tate in the backline. Fellow Origin stars Johnathan Thurston and James Tamou should both back up.
