HOWLONG is set to be buoyed by the return of Steve Jolliffe against Osborne on Saturday.
The reigning Azzi medallist has missed the past fortnight after getting his finger caught in a log-splitter.
It is a timely return with the Spiders in desperate need of an upset victory to remain a finals threat.

Rand-Walbundrie-Walla stunned Osborne last round, winning by 21-points in one of the upsets of the season.
Spiders' coach Beau Packer said the Tigers on the rebound was always a daunting proposition.
"History says Osborne don't too often drop two matches in-a-row," Packer said.
"Osborne getting beat just highlights if you don't come to play each week, you're a fair chance of getting rolled.
"We changed a few things around last week and stuck with Culcairn until the final-quarter.
"We just need to produce a four-quarter performance and we are quite capable of getting the upset."
