New Zealand Warriors vs Nth Queensland Cowboys Preview
Two Round 4 losers will be eager to atone on Friday evening when the Warriors and Cowboys do battle, also on the Central Coast.
The Warriors were outstanding in their return to the competition a couple of weeks ago, but it appears as though they were playing on enormous adrenaline, as well as that week’s opponent being the pits (St George), because they didn’t have an answer for the Panthers in Round 4.
There was a bit to like about a few solo performances – Tohu Harris for one, has wound back the clock to his Melbourne Storm days and has so-far been about the pick of the bunch in 2020.
They’ll need that and a lot more to defeat the Cowboys, who were also caught with their pants down by the Sharks.
The Cows seemed to lack direction, confidence and a sturdy defensive line, and it showed in their inability to contain and young and injury-ravaged Cronulla line-up.
I actually can’t have the Cowboys as short as they are this week and while I do think they might sneak home, I’m happy to have something on the Warriors at the line.
