Cowboys vs Sea Eagles – Round 3, 2017

Johnathan Thurston has the Cowboys rolling at 2-0 despite not playing their best football to start their 2017 campaign. But as all good sides do, they find a way.

This week, they will be without three key and experienced players in Antonio Winterstein, Lachlan Coote and Matt Scott – the latter who is out for the season with an ACL injury. However, that still shouldn’t bother them at home againstĀ a team who has failed to open their 2017 account. Jason Taumalolo will also miss through suspension.

Kalyn Ponga starts in the number one jersey in what should be a mouth-watering duel with Tom Trbojevic however if the Sea Eagles defence leaks points like they did to end last weekend’s matchup against Souths, it could get ugly up north.
