The Cowboys welcome back some serious big guns this week – Thurston, Cooper, Tamou, O’Neill, Scott and Morgan. That will change the complexion of any team, that lot! This will only add to the fact that they are almost impossible to beat at home, so despite Manly gave them a good run for their money last time up there, the Bulldogs will have their work cut out for them.

The Dogs have been humming along nicely but they haven’t been playing sides of this calibre so it will be a good test for them as they take on the reigning premiers. I do believe the Cowboys will pack too many guns and should take this out with something to spare, looking at the line I don’t think it is big enough, so let’s go with the Cowboys – 7.5 at $1.97.

The Cowboys will get off to a bright start with all their cattle back, I am tipping the big bopper Jason Taumalolo at $34 to score the First Try. This will be a great game to start the week and hopefully a profitable one.
Cowboys -7.5 - 1pt @ 1.97
Jason Taumalolo - 1pt @ 34.00
