Welcome to Wide World of Sports’ live coverage of Thursday night footy as the North Queensland Cowboys face up against the Sydney Roosters.
While the clash looks like a mismatch on paper, Roosters coach Trent Robinson will be on high alert after his troops emerged battered and bruised from last week’s thriller against the Melbourne Storm.
They’ll also be underpowered due the loss of Boyd Cordner and Daniel Tupou through injury, setting the stage for a potential boil over on the road.
“I’m going to go the Roosters, just,” Andrew Johns told Wide World of Sports’ Freddy & Joey’s Tips.
“Worried about the Roosters, and the Storm, coming off that physical, high-emotion game last Thursday night up in Brisbane.
“Travelling away for the Roosters. I think the Roosters win, but it’ll be tight.”
Meanwhile, Paul Green’s men will be desperate for any points they could salvage out of this one after a shocking loss last week to the Eels.
When: Cowboys vs Roosters start time – 7:50pm.
Where: Queensland Country Bank Stadium
