North Queensland will be sweating on the fitness of Matt Bowen and Ashley Graham as the duo struggle to be fit in time for Saturday's clash with St George Illawarra at WIN Stadium.
Bowen has an ankle injury and Graham a knee problem, with club officials to make a call on their fitness when they receive scan results this morning. NSW forward Luke O'Donnell is also hopeful of returning from a hand injury against the Dragons.
Meanwhile, Queensland Origin fullback Karmichael Hunt will have surgery on his broken right foot in Brisbane today.
Hunt suffered the injury in Brisbane's 18-16 loss to St George Illawarra last Friday night. Hunt is expected to be out for eight weeks and return for the Broncos' round 24 clash against the Bulldogs at Sydney.
