    Needed one to keep related Cowboys news.
    With Thurston gone who will the halves be, maybe as Maroon Faithful said give Anthony Watts a run with Thompson??

    Is Payne still playing on through is injury? If he needs time on the sidelines Watts would need to play 9?
  3. Lukic L Popovic

    6. Bowen
    7. Thompson could be coming in the future.

    They'll panic and throw Rovelli in there I reckon. They shouldn't, but I think they will.
  5. Paddy P Orr

    Paynes injured too though and awta, I havent liked what Rovelli has provided so far this season, if they do pick him he is seriously gonna have to step it up.

    Was an idea I thought of but Rob made a good point Bowen will be a defensive liability in the halves.

    If anything they should give one of their under 20's a go or have a look at the Northen Pride, have a few decent halfs tbh.
  7. Paddy P Orr

    Yeah I much prefer the idea of them bringing in younger players, give them some first grade experience.
    Smart of them if they retain Thompson who wasnt great last night but its only his second game.

    Yeah, Thompson is a solid defender - much better option than Rovelli even if he doesnt play that great.
  9. Paddy P Orr

    If the forward pack doesnt end up with a great deal of injuries and the only real serious injury is Thurston then I dont see why the Cowboys couldnt win a fair few games, seems when Thurston was out there they relied on him to do everything.
    When he left the field the Cowboys seemed to work better defensively, lifted quite a bit.
    They will be favourites for the spoon but I think the Cowboys will do better then people think.

    Cowboys played better without Thurston on the field tbh last night. Looked much more of a threat with Thompson and Watts/Payne doing the bulk of the work.

    Rovelli really only had one very bad game against the Drags. He's been okay-ish this season and last, and scored IIRC in his last NSW cup match.

    I think Gallant's earned his spot at the back, and Bowen's gonna slot in at 6 if Thurston's gone.

    1. Gallant

    6. Bowen
    7. Thompson

    9. Watts

    17. Rovelli

    Would be the best side i'm picking, obviously with Payne out. I'd say he is, because he's been playing fair shit this season
  12. Julian BJ Taylor

    Qld Cup.

    I'd deffo have Rovelli in the 17 as well.
  13. Maroon_Faithful M Faithful

    What a crock of shit. He was disgracefully bad last year and started this year the same way. Absolute hack in both defence and attack.
  14. SM MD Dorn

    He's never going to set the world on fire like JT, but he's steady ish
  15. Paddy P Orr

    Defensively Rovelli has been rubbish this year, attacking wise he hasnt had impact either.
  16. League Lover L Lover

    On the news tonight Hennry came out and said that Payne, if he wasnt injured was their next choice to go into the halves ITSTL.
  17. SM MD Dorn

    win / win really.

    Means Watts gets more game time
  18. Lukic L Popovic

    Glad it isn't a long one for Thurston.

    Would rather Thurston gone for the year and Moltz for 2-3 weeks tho.
  19. SM MD Dorn

    Stop ****ing derailing threads into how much you love the Tigers and would turn gay for them
  20. Lukic L Popovic

    I haven't derailed shit you stupid ****.
