Cowboys over Oldcastle @ $2.05
These are just my hopes/wishes/thoughts:
Cowboys lose tonight their season is over - mathematically/physically/mentally/emotionally/mechanically.
If they win tonight all of a sudden they find themselves 2 points out of the eight with 2 weeks to go.
Canberra and Newcastle have a BYE in hand, therefore they will both be on 28 points.
However the Cowboys can also finish on 28 points, as they play Newcastle tonight, then Souths and Parra in R26 with Thurston back.
Canberra's remaining 2 games are against Melbourne and Sharks... definately no certainty of winning either.
Newcastle play Cowboys tonight, then Penrith next week... who are also in the hunt.
Add to that Parra play Roosters tomorrow, Brisbane, then Cowboys.. they are no certainty of winning more than 1 game there.
St George are also part of this as they play Wests, Sharks and Roosters. Should be able to win 2 of those and seal the deal but they are in shit form.
Another thing.. if Manly lose against Souths tomorrow, they are no guarantee of being there next month as they play Bulldogs, then Melbourne to finish off.
I guess the whole point of this is.. there whole season is riding on this match.
Surely playing up here in front of 20,000odd and against Joey :retard: less Knights they should be able to pull this off.
Virtually no team outside the top 2 are safe. Maybe Brisbane also.
In my opinion the Cowboys can finish 5th/6th/7th.
This is just a quick write up of what I had down.
Then scheduled maintenence came up and I lost everything.
