Apologies if this thread already exists. I couldnt find it.

Cant wait for this. Just to see how we measure up against a form team. I feel we are travelling the best we have for years and definately dont think we are easily losing this.

A win here would solidify a lot of commentators and fans that we are not fluking these wins. That we are a genuine finals ready team. I may be biased but I think we are already.

Also if we win, and manly beat the bunnies at brookvale, we will be in the top four.

We're the only team since the cows went on a winning streak to beat the cowboys. That said, JT wasn't in that game. I love the form we have right now but I can't see us winning next week - but with only need 2 out of the last 5 games to seal a finals berth I'm not that worried. We can lose half our games and still hold 6th, depending on other clubs.

It sickens me how much respect people give the Cowboys - they are pretenders and always will be. Despite their position on the ladder they don't overly impress me like say Brisbane, maybe it's just because they are a soulless club I dunno
Just match them up front and we are half way there but we need fifita's back

I'm never overly nervous playing this mob in a regular season game and that says something

Will will beat them 24-19 not that it will deflate the Townsville hype balloon, there will always be some excuse for those mugs

Why dont you think we can win?


Have you seen JT this year? The guy won the Dally M several rounds ago - I want us to win to get me wrong, I just expect the cows with JT to be a different story to the one we played out earlier this year.

Pretty sure they've bent us over at home more than we've done to them in recent years

Shaping up to be a very important game, I think the boys will put in a decent performance but the cowboys are focused and can't see them losing they have been impressive.

If we have fifis back we will be a chance but I am think we will drop this one but can't make the same mistake against the storm

Assuming Lewy is still out we must have Fifita back. No other way about it.

This is a very winnable game. Operation stop Jonathan Thurston... we have the defence to pull it off.

Don't think so mate, not unless Souths cop a hammering & we win by a squillion.

Doubt it woill happen, but would love Fafita back for this one.

A chance Souths lose to the firing Sea Eagles next week, a win here would be awesome.

It will be good to get back to Shark Park. Need to get as many down there as possible to cheer the boys on.
I have to say I've been guilty of not giving our boys enough credit over the past few weeks. I thought we may jag one win on the road but instead we got all three. It's been a great effort by everyone. Let's hope we can keep it up.

You never know with the Cowboys, but this year they've definitely shed their easy beats away from home tag. It's pretty simple, stop JT and you stop the Cowboys. But doing it is not simple at all.

If we assume we're still without Fifs and Lewy then even at home it's another tough task. We can't afford to give them the amount of possession we gave the Warriors and hope to win.

I'm gonna guess thats what sitting next to Chad does to ya.

It'll be tough against the Cows but they've been falling off a bit. Conceding large early leads and needing to claw it back. If they do that against us we won't let happen so easily if we're on.

Once again I'm left saying something cliche and silly like if we lose it'll be on us. But it really will. They'll have to do what they do best for 80 minutes to beat us - scrappy for 40-50 probably won't do it if we're there to play too.
