Preview

One story came out of the Cowboys game last weekend and boy wasn’t it a big one (literally).

104kg forward John Asiata was quite simply amazing as he slotted into the halfback role vacated by Johnathan Thurston and even though their first half defence was undoubtedly a worry, their second half fightback would’ve pleased coach Paul Green.

The Knights, on the other hand, were outclassed last week against the Roosters and despite results not going their way so far this season, they’ll be looking for more consistency in their effort as we move into the middle part of the season.

The Cowboys 50% home record should give the Knights some hope as they head up north and while Asiata was good last week, he’s not JT. They should also be looking to expose Antonio Winterstein, who might be a little rusty having missed the last month through injury.

The Cowboys need to win to ensure they don’t lose pace with the top four as we inch closer to the Origin period and they should get the points this weekend.

Cowboys by 8.
