Is JT too old? What are the forwards doing? Should it be Michael Morgan’s team? Is Paul Green over-coaching or under-coaching? Just some of the endless questions hanging over the Cowboys’ heads after slumping to their fifth straight loss last week.
Frustration is mounting by the week in Townsville and it’s possible that all the speculation and theories have given the Cowboys an acute case of analysis paralysis. Can’t wait to see what they produce this week because the finals are slipping away before their eyes.
Having said that, the Cowboys are probably one of the few teams in the Telstra Premiership capable of winning 10 in a row – if they ever find form.
The Titans are one of six teams with a 3-3 record after last week’s road loss to Penrith. But they have a rare chance to kick the Cowboys while they’re down and need to make the most of it.
