Gold Coast's Jarryd Hayne has hailed North Queensland's Johnathan Thurston as the NRL's best in-game kicker as the superstar pair prepare to collide in Townsville on Saturday.

The Titans' recruit admits he faces a busy night at fullback returning Thurston's kicks as Gold Coast head to the premiers knowing nothing less than a win will keep their finals dream alive.

"That's one of the hardest tasks as a fullback whenever I've played JT - his kicking game," Hayne said, "JT's attack on the line with repeat sets, he's probably the best in the game."
