The Cowboys were one of the most lauded teams before the season began. Punters all around this Great Brown Land of ours were starting to throw money at them to be Premier's this year. They even won the Auckland Nine's comp.
But somewhere between then and now the wheels have fallen off completely. The Cowboys season has gone pear-shaped and no one can understand how or why. They have the greatest player in the world, Jonathan Thurston. Their forward pack is massive with the Sims brothers, Matt Scott, James Tamou and Jason Taumalolo.
The Cowboys are clearly a danger, but I have faith our boys can get over them.
The Titans are going into this game minus Will Zillman, which is a huge blow. David Mead will slot into fullback and Anthony Don comes into the squad on the wing. There is still a question mark over Aidan Sezer's fitness for the match too.
As usual I'm expecting our hero's, Greg Bird, Nate Myles and Albert Kelly to blitz the Cowboys. Also hoping the Coaltrain, Dave Taylor, finally explodes out of the gate, he's been a bit quiet in recent weeks.
Who have you tipped? Is it the Coaltrain's time to shine?
