    Fairly weak bait but no where did I say there that we had a gun half coming through. Main guy I was referring to was Enari Tuala who if he didn't get injured would be first centre picked for team of the year.

    Murray Tualagi is also a handy prospect seeing as though he hadn't played league until signing for the Cowboys this year. He has now picked up a first grade contract for next year.

    He is referring to the Cowgirls juniors not ours!

    Bite? Frustration? Just think of all that lawn mowing dude! It might keep you outta our hair even.

    Cowboys fullback Kalyn Ponga must come into consideration for an NRL call-up after he crossed for three tries, set another one up and ran for 267 metres in his side's big win over the Panthers.

    Seems thekid had a blinder on the weekend

    The whole back 5 have been in amazing form the last 3 weeks. Possibly the best back 5 in the comp.

    Ponga probably won't play unless it's fullback. Green has said that throughout the whole time. Though we are running extremely low on troops so he may find himself on the wing if Coote is fit to play.

    I see the Courier Mail saying Ponga will go to Union instead of coming here. They give the DT a run for their money as far as spouting absolute bullshit goes.

    The 'Mouth of the North' just cannot stand idly by and watch their 'stars' move out of Queensland.

    It tears the heart of all true Quexit racists.

    To be fair I can see him going to union next contract but will see out his Knights contract.

    The all blacks is a massive pull for him and he was tempted to switch to union the last 2 contracts signed.

    It wouldn't be the end of the world if Ponga walked.
    We have Ross, Phythian, Watson, Meaney and even young Coops and Tex Hoy who are all showing a lot of promise as fullbacks, so we should be able to cover fullback, an his money could be spent on one of the forwards we need.

    Personally would rather him not get a game while they are on the slide with them. Just hope he doesn't go battering ram mode for them.

    Can see him going to fullback and Tuala on the wing as I'm not 100% confident Coote will play.

    Not a team on the slide. If we had 17 fit players by the end of 80 minutes these last 2 weeks we would of won both games in my opinion.

    Agree cowboys forwards are sensational, but lacking that spark or last tackle finese needed to score or sustain pressure... shame i really like watching the cowboys play

    Sliding down the ladder, they could be out of the 8 if they lose this week and dragons win.
