It’s time for the Cowboys to put Johnathan Thurston out to pasture and place their future in the hands of Queensland’s next great player: Daly Cherry-Evans.

I can’t believe Penrith are rank outsiders to win the premiership from here. After next weekend I reckon they’ll be one of the only two teams left that are still alive in the competition. The bookmakers have obviously decided that Friday night’s game between South Sydney and Sydney Roosters is the real grand final. Even […]

I imagine the hours are long, the stakes are high and, given that one must work in secret and with the future of the world in one’s hands, the pressure must build frighteningly over time.

This weekend’s NRL games have been outstanding contests, both decided by just one point and producing attacking and tense footy. But still the fans complain. We complain about the refs, about the crowds, about the commentators and about certain players. The Roosters versus Cowboys match was incredible. As a Roosters fan it was my least […]

Johnathan Thurston has every right to be filthy after the Cowboys 31-30 loss to the Roosters at Allianz last night. The brilliant Cowboys captain, heading for a third Dally M, and a third Golden Boot, scored what would have been the match-winning try with a minute left on the clock. Senior ref Shayne Hayne was […]

Another year, another semi final exit at the Sydney Football Stadium for the North Queensland Cowboys. However unlike previous years, the Cowboys were legitimately beaten. After two dodgy calls against the Sea Eagles and the Sharks respectively, Cowboys fans could be excused for feeling that the game had something against them. But before anyone screams […]
