The Melbourne Storm will welcome back fullback Billy Slater with welcome arms for their NRL encounter with the Dragons on Friday.
Slater hasn't played since injuring his knee in game two of State of Origin, and without him the Storm have lost four matches in a row.
Coach Craig Bellamy says he's finally 100 percent fit.
"Without a doubt, I think he should be right this week, it's been a couple of weeks - he's in, out, in, out. We'll see how he goes at training Thursday but we're pretty confident."
But Bellamy's adamant Slater's presence alone won't fix their troubled attack.
"I think he will help it but he's not going to solve all our problems without a doubt. The laziness around our attack, if the players don't want to do it or they're not prepared to do it, well he can't change that."
Meanwhile Parramatta fullback Jarryd Hayne's been ruled out for the rest of the season with a medial ligament tear in his right knee.
