Only a six day turnaround and includes NZ to NQ to Sydney travel unless they went straight to Sydney.

Danger game this one. We should win it, but going off form from the last season and a bit in games we "should" win, we'd be about $17 to take this

I have no confidence at all

Very important we continue our gradual improvement, and if we do I think we will get a win.

Dogs defense is rubbish so hopefully a chance to knock a bit of rust off our attack

Dogs last week were good against Souths, against Saints rubbish, but I don't think this will be an easy win. They should go in decent favourites. I was more confident against the Warriors than this game. They have shown real grit and enthusiasm during parts of this season. More than us thru stages I reckon

Expecting nothing less than a win here. The scoreline on the weekend flattered the dogs. Won’t be able to get away with the wrestling in the ruck like they did against Souths. Their halves are horrible and we should be able to put enough pressure on them to force them into poor decisions. If our forwards aim up like they did on the weekend we should have no trouble getting on top of their pack.

They play their best footy when nobody expects them to win. Given they’re favourites and will see this as a winnable game, I expect a subpar performance from them.

Cowboys 13+

Why won't they get away with the wrestling? Is it because they are on notice after Bennett's whinge? I hope so, as it won't be from us trying for quick play the balls. Warriors wrestle f#%@ed us all day last game and got away with it.

We should win this though and hopefully improve to boot.

Yeah, they won’t get away with it because of all the coverage their dubious tactics in the ruck against Souths received. Graham Annesley spoke about it in his weekly officiating review presser today.

Great news about Taumalolo. If he doesn't play this week at least he's close.

I wonder how Feldt is going, would've thought he'd be back by now. Maybe throwing his leg over that big Harley all the time isn't so good for his groin.

Keep an eye out on the Blackhawks this weekend. Feldt could be a late inclusion.

Would have to be Molo considering he barely made the field last week

Interesting comment on the news tonight. Cowboys requested Mosby be named at fullback for the pride this weekend. Maybe looking to play him in the 1 for the cowboys in the coming weeks?

I think fullback is where he needs to focus his efforts. The days of the shorter winger are gone in my opinion. They are easily outjumped when defending attacking tryline kicks.

Hopefully in the next couple of weeks, both will get a decent run, effort and error rate should pick the reserve!

Gotta feel for Jensen, didn't do a thing wrong on his stints and really impressed, Even though Bolts didn't do anything wrong on Saturday he still should've been made to play his way back into the team, who knows if Jensen would've had a blinder knowing he had a chance to keep his spot
