    Should be a good game.

    Cowboys have beaten the Dragons and then the Warriors away from home. Huge effort there.

    But I reckon they are still sh*t, it's just Thurston doing everything.

    ^Because Thurston WANTS to do everything.
    The games where Cows have strugged, has been where Thurston was put into second receiver and on the left side of the field....
    So...you know if you're going to say Cows are still sh*t, it's not because of Thurston and his larger workload:S

    That might sound a bit pedantic but Cows fans get sick of the 4 year old 'One/two man team'....especially from a Knights supporter..

    Anyway....
    I don't know...I'd like to say Cows but I don't think so...not with how the Knights have been playing.

    Cowboys are a one-man team. Shut Thurston down, win the game. Quite simple really.

    If any of our players fall for his show 'n' go... :x

    Right now I feel it will be a 27-20 win to them, but we'll see what happens.

    Do you base all of your tips on last year? you must be doing well in your tipping comp this year by tipping the Sea Eagles and Sharks every week and never tipping the wooden spooner Bulldogs...:sarcasm:

    Im first in mine too (well, unless the guy i was just ahead of gets a perfect round this week, i got 6/7 so far and tipped the storm tomorrow)

    I think we'll win because i think we're a better team, playing at home in a fairly big game just before the bye. I think we'll really turn it on for the crowd.

    IMO the way the Cowboys play they are the worst TEAM in the comp. Thurston and to a lesser extent Bowen are all they have. The Knights on the other hand have threats all over the park, it could be anyone creating a chance. Pretty sure the ladder paints a clear picture for you.

    hahaha you lot are just as bad as the tigers fans who get their panties in a bunch when someone dares to not get into a circle jerk over robbie farah.

    all i did was give my tip and back my team and you guys get all defensive about it.

    As for us being a one man team. Thats completely true.... if you choose to ignore Bowen, Payne, O'Donnell, Tonga, Burns etc.... and either way it's very rich coming from knights fans of all people.

    LOL I know right, hiliarious that Knights fans have the gall to use the completely uneducated one man team line...

    The Knights are playing well but their place on the ladder is deceptive and they won't be there for long...

    I reckon the Cowboys will get the win in a close one. Both teams are playing good footy at the moment, but the Cowboys to be too strong at home.
