Warriors v Cowboys: Key trio set to return; Taumalolo to play

The Warriors "host" North Queensland on the Central Coast after falling to earth with a thud last round.

Having earned praise for their 18-0 shutout of St George Illawarra a week earlier, the New Zealand club failed to trouble the scorers in a 26-point loss to Penrith last Friday.

The Cowboys were also given a reality check of sorts, producing an error-riddled display in a defeat to Cronulla after thrashing the Titans in round three.

Team News

Warriors: Peta Hiku will start at centre for Hayze Perham with Agnatius Paasi dropping out of the reserves list on Thursday. Lachlan Burr replaces Isaiah Papali'i in the starting pack in the Warriors' other change. The Warriors have won only two of their past 13 games against the Cowboys in Australia.

Cowboys: The Cowboys announced on Thursday that Jason Taumalolo would be part of the team to face the Warriors. The Tonga representative missed round four due to bone bruising on his knee. Ben Hampton, Jake Granville and John Asiata are out, with Hamiso Tabuai-Fidow debuting on the wing, Reece Robson at hooker, Coen Hess in the second row and Gavin Cooper moving to the bench. Reuben Cotter joins the interchange. Corey Jensen and Peter Hola were omitted from the extended squad 24 hours before kick-off. Cowboys winger Kyle Feldt has scored nine tries in six games against the Warriors.

Key Match-Up

It's always exciting when two top-line fullbacks clash, and we're in for a treat with Roger Tuivasa-Sheck up against Valentine Holmes. Warriors captain Roger Tuivasa-Sheck is a model of consistency, while Holmes has shown glimpses of his brilliant best upon returning to the NRL.

The cowboys 13 doesnt look that scary and we know what we can dish up. Be 0-0 for the first 20 JT to come on and make the difference and they go ahead before halftime then run away with it in the 2nd half.

I'm going the Warriors. The Cowboys starting halves and hooker have only played 51 1st grade games between them.

We are the worst point scoring team in the comp by miles. The Cowboys average just under 25 points a game compared to our 6, so we are going to have to do better in attack. A lot better .

Oh and Blair vs McGuire who's going to give away the dumbest penalty?
Worse bit about this game..... after them finally deciding what the bug was causing the abdominal pain throughout the last couple of weeks and the right meds, I'm no longer have any pain........... until 8.00pm tonight.

Think., for my own mental health, I'll miss the game and limit my time on the forum next week. I get the feeling tonight is going to get very ugly. Oh, and if I was Toovey, I'd expect a phone call sometime early next week from Penrose.
Even if the unlikely / underachiever sides get it together at the start of the game and pile on some points (it would be astounding with us and point scoring)
... as the game progresses they get found out
... hence The Bronc's V Manly last night

The heartbreaks are starting at 6pm here in Aus ... take it easy on your selves!

Mind you I collected a hundred to one horse the other week, so... Nah!


There’s always next year.
Don't think it matters what sort of track it is. We couldn't score if we were the last dick on Earth.

Can our backs score a try that is isn’t off a kick or intercept???

that is the question for today
