Wests Tigers vs Nth Queensland Cowboys Preview
The Tigers have opened as the short-priced favourites to pick up their second win of the season against the lowly Cowboys.
After recording one of the upsets of the season a fortnight ago in Newcastle, Wests managed to put up a decent fight in the first half last week before the Eels kicked away in the final 10 minutes.
The Cowboys, on the other hand, have left plenty to be desired through the first month under new coach Todd Payten.
North Queensland has allowed the second-most points to opponents this year behind the Bulldogs – a worrying sign going up against a Tigers team that ranks top three in set completions.
To make matters worse, the Cowboys have lost four straight to the Tigers dating back to 2018 – two of which have come at Leichardt.
With some doubt surrounding the status of Justin O’Neill and Michael Morgan also set to msis another game, this looks to be another rough weekend for North Queensland fans.
