Round 14 of the NRL Premiership kicks off tonight when the North Queensland Cowboys take on the St George Illawarra Dragons at Queensland Country Bank Stadium in Townsville. Join The Roar for live scores and commentary from 7.55pm AEST.

The State of Origin period can often give teams outside the 8 a bigger chance of upsetting teams above them. The Dragons get their chance tonight. However, there’s a problem. The Cowboys, without their Origin stars, still made a mess of the Titans last round.

The Cowboys continued on their merry way in Round 13, routing the Titans 32-6. It’s easy to forget that the Titans held the early lead. When the Cowboys got a chance though, they took their game to another level and the Titans had no answers.

Whilst the Cowboys backline has plenty of exciting personnel, it is the forward pack that is laying the platform. Jason Taumalolo remains the key forward, but the selection of Reuben Cotter and Jeremiah Nanai for the Maroons confirms that there is now depth.

The Cowboys have named an unchanged line up however all 4 Origin players are in the extended squad. We can expect some changes on game day.

The Dragons sit just outside the 8, courtesy of a bye. They are last-start winners, beating the Bulldogs 34-24 a fortnight ago. However, they will need to improve on that to challenge the Cowboys.

It seems an odd thing to say in a team game, but the chances of a Dragons win often comes down to one player, Ben Hunt. Hunt is nothing flashy however he can guide his team around and use his kicking game to pin down the opposition.

Hunt and Tariq Sims have been named to back up from Origin, whilst Jayden Sullivan replaces Tyrell Fuimaono on the bench. Both Jaydn Su’A and Josh McGuire have been named in the reserves and are chances to play.

There has only been a two-day gap between Origin 1 and tonight’s game, so there may well be some late changes for both teams.

However, back at home, after winning without a number of stars last round, it’s hard to look past the Cowboys.

They are the real deal this year
