The North Queensland Cowboys will be looking to remain in the top four when they do battle with the Newcastle Knights in Round 10 in the NRL on Saturday.
The Cowboys, on paper, have an outstanding team with the likes of Matty Bowen, Jonathan Thurston, Brent Tate, Matt Scott and Dallas Johnson in their ranks, but you fear that if they do not win a Grand Final in 2012 then they never will.
They are currently fourth on the NRL ladder and will stay their if they see off the Knights to record their sixth success of the campaign.
The Cowboys come into this game on the back of a clinical display in their 30-6 hammering of the St George Illawarra Dragons with Bowen and Tate getting on the score sheet.
The Knights, however, remain on the verge of the play-offs in ninth spot and will be hoping to claim their fifth win of the season and hope other results fall their way.
The Knights are now coached by former Broncos and Dragons chief Wayne Bennett, and despite having players like Darius Boyd, Jarrod Mullen, Akuila Uate and Willie Mason they are yet to really impress.
Bennett’s boys will be hoping to bounce back from last weekend’s 24-6 loss at the hands of Sydney Roosters with Mullen the only player crossing the whitewash.
The Cowboys have been installed as slight favourites by Luxbet to win the game and can be backed at $1.85, while the Knights are on offer at 1.95 despite being on home soil.
