    I think Parra will have too many points in them and even though they lost against the Storm they will be more confident.

    Stranger things have happened though and the Cowboys to date have been nothing short of outstanding given the players they have on the sidelines.

    Like last year when we had a 90 min match the week before ..I think it will tell in the game next week .
    Think parra will get us by about 16
    Still been a great year watching them never give up when at times you couldn't really blame them if they did .

    The Cowboys in a boilover.

    The Eels will choke under the weight of the favourites tag and all the media attention.

    Cows have exceeded expectations in my books

    Anything from now is a bonus. I don't think you can be too disappointed if they bow out next week

    North Queensland - ruining finals crowds in Sydney since 2004.

    The result of this game depends on exactly how many penalties the Cowboys win the penalty count by

    This game worries me - reminds me of the 2005 semi all over again

    wouldn't be much reserves left in the tank for this one. Yesterday was all grit and determination but very little finesse and creativity which you need to match it in the point scoring ranks with a side like the eels.

    The fact that a prelim final is a very likely chance 80 minutes away is close to a miracle from the how things were going about 5 weeks ago

    Eels should win this, and you'd think they'd win it comfortably. But I have no doubt that there will be moments during the match that could swing it either way. Still, Eels 27 - 14 with the field goal before halftime to break a stalemate and a try in the final 5 minutes to put it beyond doubt.

    Eels should have too many points in them. Cows will try hard and keep within reach but it's unlikely the Eels will implode like the sharks did.

    Still will be good for the lols watching Hess make Moses his bitch again

    Parra probably too good with a big support.

    Speaking of that - if there are any Cowboys season ticket holders who aren't using their codes to get tickets, PM me as i'm looking to take 2 cowboys fans from down Wollongong way to the game in the supporter bay.

    The more cowboys fans the merrier right?

    Nah smells like 48-10.

    Would much prefer to play Parra. We match up like a dream against them and we'd fly under the radar all week.

    Who cares? 20 minutes of extra time is my only wish.
