North Queensland Cowboys vs New Zealand Warriors Preview
These two sides have everything to play for on Friday night in what should be a telling game between ninth and tenth.
The Cowboys were sensational from start to finish last week in their 16-point win over the Knights, while the Warriors saw off a late comeback from the Tigers to win by four in Gosford.
North Queensland has been a real handful at home this year and it is a little surprising to find them as the underdogs.
The Cowboys have posted a strong 4-2 mark in Townsville, which reads much better than New Zealand’s 2-3 record away from home.
These two sides have split their previous 38 meetings with 19 wins apiece, adding further intrigue to a game that could determine the makeup of the top eight.
As far as betting goes this is probably one of the toughest games to pick of the round, but it’s very difficult to back the Warriors to win two games in a row based on their recent history.
There really shouldn’t be anything more than a converted try between the two, but the current price on offer for North Queensland looks generous.
