After that game Last week, watching these games, it feels like we havent played in the NRL yet.

Dragons are much worse than people think, and it made the Cowboys look great.
Madges experiment with the halves, hooker, and FB is a disaster. Plus the only steel
they had is Frizel and JDB.

Broncos forwards owned it. Lucky too, because Milford and Nikorima were terrible.

I saw a bit of the Raiders v Storm first half when I was having my breakfast. I saw Bateman lose the ball in a tackle trying one of his trademark shite backhand off loads, how did he go otherwise?

He had a better game last week in his more favoured terrential rain weather.

Cows look just as dropsy as last year, it’s got to be mental at this point. Maybe they are rarkng themselves up too much in the sheds?

It's the spine for me. Morgan, Martin, Granville, and Kahu. That doesn't strike much fear.

No Taumalolo to paper over the cracks this week.

Outside the Dogs the Cowboys may have the worst outside backs in the comp. Kahu is probably their best (Feldt injured at the moment,)

I really rate Granville, but I wonder if his time with JT means that he needs a fresh perspective and place to be. All that talk about how he went into his shell last year, cause hes in awe of JT. Well JT is still hanging around...

Cows have no creativity. You just need to contain Taumololo and you have the fuckers on toast. Beating an out of sorts dragons was a false dawn- they still lack creativity in the backline. Would have been so different with Barba

Hope we can turn up in Campbelltown Sunday and power past some less consistent teams
I agree cos watching the Storm and the Broncos last night we are going to need to improve to compete with them. We were very good last week but as Sup42 said, the pace of the Broncs game last night seemed next level.

Thats fair enough and could be true re a fresh start somewhere, I personally think his DH service is reserve grade and the Cows should be looking for a new rake.

I don’t want this to sound horrible but I hope Taumalolo’s knee injury puts him out for at least 4 weeks. He’s definitely a tough bugger though. Continued playing for another 20 odd minutes. Cowboys are terrible without him. Morgan was a passenger last night

I just get the vibe that no one really buys his dummy anymore and that was one of his main tools.

Kind of like Ben Hunt - just hammer him whether it’s a dummy or not.

The guy is an immortal. They should not have let him back on with a medial ligament tear. 20 minutes might prove to cost 20 weeks.

Best forward the game has seen. SBW don't count cos he went to rugby. Gutted JT don't play for us now.

First time I've seen the Titan's pack on paper- wow what a pack of monsters.
