Crocs vs Taipans, Dec 2
Townsville have just sacked their MVP Brian Conklin, but beat Melbourne the last time they played without him. Schenscher is still out and they're coming off a 38-point thumping in Wollongong.
Cairns have lost their last two and will be keen to bring their record closer to .500 before Adelaide and Illawarra start to extend their gap.
