The Warriors have had the Cowboys' number in recent history, having edged them out twice at the start of last year's season in tight contests.

Auckland to Townsville is the longest trip the Warriors have to make, but they welcomed back plenty of key players returning from injury.

The Cowboys were in an almost identical position on the ladder, also desperate to walk away from Saturday night's match with a much-needed victory.
