North Queensland Cowboys vs Cronulla Sharks
The North Queensland Cowboys welcome the Cronulla Sharks to Townsville for this highly anticipated round 3 match up from the 2019 NRL season and the great news for all fans of the NRL is that you can watch all of the action live online via our NRL live streaming partners.
Whilst both teams may not have the same quality and depth and a few years back when they were amongst the favourites for the title, they still have the quality to take on and defeat anybody on their day and that should set this up to be a great match.
This is the first of 3 straight matches at home for the Cowboys who will be wanting to take full advantage of the hot and humid conditions to place themselves in a strong league position, especially after a slow start derailed there season last year.
Both teams have played 2 matches this season with both winning 1 and losing 1.
The Cowboys make a number of changes with Martin going to fullback and Clifford named in the halves.
O’Neill and Opacic drop out to be replaced by Hampton and Kahu. Coen Hess comes in for the injured Jason Taumalalo which see’s McGuire go to loose forward. The last change sees Jensen join the bench.
Cronulla make no change.
The Cowboys biggest problem over the past 18 months or so has been getting a settled squad out on the park and finding consistency, probably due to that.
With so many changes once again for this one and with the Sharks naming a settled squad, what will likely be a close game throughout could come down to error made and that should paly into the favour of the away side who we are going to back for the win, but this is one of those game that really is to close to call.
