    Our side will no doubt come out in 3-4 hours time I assume
    Not sure how many points the Cowboys have in them, but Im sure they will have 2-3 tries with Thurston there. Im pretty confident in our defence though.

    We did alright with Cummins on the weekend, got a few offside penalties (prob the thing we need to fix the most) though its not a critical problem. Was happy we were able to be disciplined in areas Penrith weren't either heh.

    cowboys 1-12. They played very well last week and i think our injuries may unsettle us a little. we played well too but penrith really gave us the game.

    Not real confident. Hopefully Gids will be right. Either way Knights 1-12.

    We played crap last year when we headed to townsville, and cowboys were on the bottom, and we had most our guys in that, going to be a hard game with key injuries

    Will be a tough game away, but I thought the Penrith game was going to be tough.

    If our defence is strong, and we get on top early we should be able to blow the game apart.

    Hopefully Gidley and De gois can play and we rack up a big scoreline.

    Not sure about the finishers as well as the bench. We are a much more experienced side and should give the Cowboys a good indication of where they are at compared to when they played the Broncos, however I always thought the Panthers had a better side on paper compared to this side, yet the Cowboys will likely be a tougher match!

    Beau Henry and Tariq sims go a fair way back playing against each other, back to the Gorilla's Vs the Lions.

    Cowboys 28 - 10

    Not confident at all, still tipping us but travelling up there with such a re-arranged side i dont think we can win this one. Hopefully we somehow do though :)

    Hopefully we can see Sau continue the great attacking form he showed in round 1 and wreak havoc on the Cowboys average left defence of Tupou and Graham.

    Cowboys 24-12

    Can't see us winning this one against an on fire Cowboys side and Knights missing Gids, De Gois & Costigan. Hope Hilder is really fit 'cause I think he's going to be doing 80 minutes at hooker.

    Hardly say the Cowboys are on fire, they looked horrible against Brisbane, Thurston is our only danger IMO.

    I think we'll surprisingly do well in this game. I expect Henry, Mullen & Hilder to control the team & direct it around the field well. I have a feeling Stone will withdraw Gids at the last minute so that will be a blow but the way we played last game without Gids was great, so hopefully we can continue on.
