North Queensland Cowboys vs Wests Tigers Preview & Prediction

The Cowboys are playing their best footy of the season as they prepare to host the embattled Tigers on Saturday night in Townsville.

It was a nightmare start to the season for the Cowboys – and they hit their lowest point against the Tigers when they suffered an embarrassing 66-18 loss last month, which was their heaviest defeat in the Todd Payten era.

However, the Cowboys have bounced back brilliantly from that defeat and come into this clash on the back of victories over the Storm, Panthers and Rabbitohs – three of the favourites for the premiership.

North Queensland destroyed the Storm 45-20 and Rabbitohs 31-6, while they showcased their toughness by grinding out a golden point victory over the Panthers without their Origin stars.

All of a sudden, the Cowboys are just two wins away from the top four – and with a bye and game against the Sea Eagles coming in Round 20, they can pick up another six points over the next three weeks.

Meanwhile, the Tigers have gone in the opposite direction since that crushing win, losing their next three games against the Raiders, Titans and Storm.

Injuries to Luke Brooks and Api Koroisau means the Tigers are looking devoid of ideas in attack, scoring just 18 points in the last two weeks.

VERDICT

Revenge is on the menu in Townsville and the Cowboys could be set for another massive victory. The Tigers have been terrible over the last three weeks and injuries to their two main attacking weapons obviously doesn’t help matters.

North Queensland covered a -16.5 line in wins over the Storm and Rabbitohs, so imagine what they can do to a depleted Tigers side at home (Best Cowboys -16.5 line odds $2.00 with bet365.)
