    Much better than the Sharks. Still a tough side to beat but they played their grand final today IMO.

    They are more of a threat than the Sharks. Concerned now despite the extra time.

    At least the crowd will be 90% to us.....no repeat of that final against them in 2005 please....I still have nightmares

    So the Cowboys complete pretty good but lack points and aren't the hardest side to defence against.

    It won't be easy, but if we complete our sets like yesterday (87%) we should get it and starve them of the opportunity to score. Cowboys don't score long distance tries , sharks just gave them to much ball!!

    They are pretty good defensively.

    BA has a big job to keep the boys focused and not take the game easy. We will be the favourites!!

    Watching game I was thinking who would be worse to play. But to be fair sharks had worse game of year.
    42% possesion
    60% completion vs 82%
    38 missed tackles
    11 penalties vs 5
    1 sin bin
    17 errors vs 11
    166 runs vs 222.

    Lost by a point.

    I think the sharks would be harder to beat... Cowboys hopefully played their GF...

    Wouldn't be surprised if we choke against them again like we did in 2005 losing 29-0,would have preffered to play the Sharks

    Relax Daniel wagon wont be playing.

    The cowboys had their grand final today. They are busted played extra time. 6 day break travelling.

    Perfect result for Parramatta makes the loss last night not as bad

    Why? Did you think sharks played well And cowboys outplayed them? I thought Sharks where woefull and wouldt play a game that bad again. Maybe took cowboys lightly. Sharks where close to diabolical.

    We won't choke, Cowboys will have to play out of their skins to beat us.

    Agreed, after they got that 8 point lead they barely finished a set of six.

    Gallen being Mr Selfish costing his team the win was delicious.

    We just have to stop Tuamalolo.

    Only other difference is Granville.

    this is the finals all the easy games are over
    just look at the scores across the weekend the highest winning margin was twelve points all the other games were two points or less

    to win we will have to do what the cowboys did fight and scrape for every point

    That's not hard, he just runs straight up the middle. He is a great player, but cowboys just using him as battering ram!!

    Granville is no where near as good as his debut year.
