Nth Queensland Cowboys vs Newcastle Knights Preview
Thursday night footy returns this week with an intriguing clash between 11th and 12th on the ladder.
Despite a spirited first half, the Cowboys fell 14-point victims to the Roosters last week, while the Knights also came up short by a similar margin to a lively Tigers outfit.
The Cowboys’ injury woes have only gotten worse with Coen Hess suffering a concussion last week, but that hasn’t stopped the bookies favouring the home side by a slim margin.
The Knights also suffered a blow with Pasami Saulo suffering a severe leg injury, but there is a chance Edrick Lee returns this week to give the Newcastle attack a much-needed boost.
Betting-wise, the Cowboys do look a good bet here with home-field advantage, particularly when you consider the Knights have played to a 2-3 record away from home this year.
Newcastle hasn’t won in Townsville since 2015, so if Todd Payten’s crew can start fast like they did last week, they might one-up the Knights on the ladder.
