    This game will be tough. Cowboys are desperate to stay in the finals, we might get complacent against a less capable team. We've performed really well the last month but have still been very scratchy. If Teddy fires, Wests will win easily.

    Hopefully for Teddy and Woodsy's farewell to C'town they pull a good/decent crowd.

    Danger game. On recent form we should account for them pretty easily but you never know

    Us by 12

    Normally I'd b very confident in Sydney games v cowboys.However they've lost with dignity over the last month & a no. of games injuries have cost them any chance to win.They will throw everything at us due to there precarious position in the 8.This should b a nail-biter.

    If Brooks is fit and his hammy is okay we should win. We have had a good run against the Cows, but with JLJ playing no7 we come back to the field in a hurry. I know Brooks is a bit up and down but he is miles ahead of JLJ

    No disrespect to the Cowboys but I think we've got them. They've lost their last four and they've leaked points of late (granted by Melbourne, Penrith, Cronulla and Easts.)

    We beat them with Thurston, we should get them without him. I'm confident we'll do well.

    We certainly have had the wood on them in Sydney however I've watched there games over the last month & there results belie there form.Additionally there form away from Townsville has been a lot better than in the past.We can definitely win it but I'm not as confident as I have been in the past particularly in games at Leichhardt against them !

    Mail is Morgan will be out but Coote and Cooper(?) I think will be back

    Plus Hess and Taumololo. Still a dangerous team on paper but so were the roosters and we nearly beat them

    No matter who bad or injury depleted we are we always beat the cowboys. Our random rushing up out of nowhere defence has always troubled Thurston.

    Now they're injury depleted and playing poorly, whereas we're going alright, so knowing us we'll stink it up and lose.

    Yes, I know who he is, but nothing about his footy, he obviously has some talent, can anyone give any info on him.

    I'm really looking forward to seeing how young siro handles the big time on his debut.Well done IC for giving the kid a shot at home late in season.

    Hopefully he has a stronger work ethic than his sluggish brother.

    It's irrelevant to whether he is cutting it in grade but people I know involved in the Balmain juniors were all of the belief that he had more potential than his brother.I hope it's a case of the apple not falling far from the tree in the case of Bayley's NRL future at WT.

    The thing with me regarding Sironen the Younger is, he started the year in the back row so you'd assume he is strong enough/tough enough but then he's played more 5/8 but has he progressed? IC has persevered with LittleJohn in the 17 so is that an indication as to where Sironen the Younger is?

    Or has he just kept him away from 1st grade for his own good ? surely not, because playing reserves and getting smashed each week by 30 and 40 would be no good for his confidence.

    Interesting and I hope he gets a run and goes OK.

    Haven't been able to notice him much because our nsw cup side is diabolical but I remember him dominating at u20s level in 16'

    Good move by ic anyway, nothing to lose and could uncover a real talent in the process

    Pretty sure he made u20s Blues side in 16', although could be wrong...remember him getting some sort of rep homie

    Rated higher than his brother was anyway

    Don't rate Bayley at all. Small, limited skills and not quick. Does go hard but to me he's another Lovett.

    I heard an interview with the Sg ball coach who had woods, brooks, Moses, sirox2 and he did say Bayley was the toughest out of all of them. Probably not the biggest wrap considering that company but it's something I guess.

    Think he's off contract this year Vic,so maybe IC is seeing if he's worth re signing.

    Where is Lovett these days anyway?
