When: 19:50 | Thursday 18/05/2017
Where: Southern Cross Group Stadium
Watch: Channel Nine and Fox League – Live coverage from 7.50pm
The Sharks are playing as good as they were last year but they don’t shut down the game in some of the close games, which they did last year when they had Ben Barba.
With Origin around the corner, the Sharks will lose a few players, which will put more pressure on the squad to get that much-needed ‘W’ and put them in finals contention.
It’s going to be interesting to see how they bounce back after the Origin series.
Last week I said Michael Morgan needed to step up to give the Cowboys a chance of winning and it turned out to be his best game of the season.
That game should cement his spot in the Queensland Origin team.
This match will be a grinding 80 minute game from the Sharks.
You won’t be checking the scoreboard very often, as it will be a low-scoring game.
The Cowboys have come down early to prepare for this game as they want to keep that momentum running from last week’s win, so I think the two points will be on the plane heading back to Townsville with them.
Cronulla at $1.40
North Queensland at $3.00
Tip: North Queensland at $3.00
Line tip: North Queensland +7.5
