    I wouldn't be looking forward to getting off the plane in NSW right now if I were the Cows players, and that would be the case without a pandemic. The Dogs might have them out enthused here.

    I found this game really hard to tip. The Bulldogs attack was really clunky, slow and pretty much robotic with their best option being a bomb from Lewis. Their defence on the other hand was really good and they scrambled like 17 year old schoolgirls to a Port Macquarie hotel. The Cowboys scored over 20 points last week even with a disjointed backline, but their defence around the ruck was poor IMO.
    I only tipped the Cowboys based on their attack, so the Bulldogs will probably win lol.

    Cowboys by 6, think they are more likely to score...and well the Dogs couldn't score to save their life!

    Will be a defence focused borefest most likely. Keep DWZs running metres to a minimum and we win. If you were going to pick something to break out of a grind and suddenly break 5 tackles and run 70m for a try against the run of play dallin would be it

    Any North Queensland fans want to convince me that I should tip you guys this week? I have, but I can’t come up with a logical reason why, except that the dogs have been poor for the past few years.

    Josh Maguire is back and our number six will be better this week or flick him for Clifford

    Holmes positioning at the back should be better

    Will be strange seeing the games without a crowd. Heard they were putting on crowd noises in the background.

    The Crowd looks pretty reasonable for a Thursday night at ANZ.

    No crowd. Wonder how much it cost to get out of the ground.
