Two sides sitting in the top 5 on the table will face off in Darwin in a vital clash for the direction of the season.
The Eels bounced back last week with a big win over the Knights to move into 3rd place on the table. They have 5 wins from 7 matches so far and look like one of the teams to beat.
The Cowboys made it 2 in a row when they thumped the Titans last week 30-4. The victory improves their record to 4-3 as they sit 5th on the table with a healthy points differential.
When is the Eels vs Cowboys clash?
The clash gets underway at 7:35pm AEST on Saturday 30 April at TIO Stadium in Darwin, Northern Territory.

Who will win Eels vs Cowboys?
The Eels’ annual trip to play in Darwin produces probably the match of the round this week. These are 2 sides in good form who both look like they will comfortably play in the finals on the evidence of the early rounds.
The Eels responded like good teams should last week after their scrappy loss to the Tigers over the Easter Weekend.
The Cowboys should handle the conditions in the heat and humidity of Darwin well and they have won 2 of their last 3 matches in the Territory.
In recent form, Eels vs Cowboys should be a high-scoring contest. We are tipping the Eels to sneak home in a terrific exhibition of rugby league in the Top End.
