    North Queensland Cowboys v Wests Tigers

    Date

    Ash Gray

    Sort posts by:

     

    The turmoil-ridden Tigers have been demolished by the Cowboys in Townsville. The Queenslanders ran in 12 tries to one as Wests' week from hell off the field continued on the field. They had no answer to Lui and Thurston's smart passing game and Taumalolo's bulldozing runs. In truth, most of the match they looked disinterested. What this means for under-fire coach Mick Potter is anyone's guess but expect more chaos this week as yet more angry fingers are pointed. A terrible evening for the gold, white and black.

    Cowboys 64 Tigers 6

    78th minute:

    Try No.12 for the Cowboys as Moga sleepwalked past a couple of anonymous-looking blokes to score. Actually, Moga did put on a neat step and used his considerable strength to power over. Thurston, having missed with several conversions from the right, attempts the conversion with his left boot but the kick swings wide.

     

    Cowboys 64 Tigers 6

    77th minute:

    Matt Scott has racked up 203m tonight; Taumalolo 206m.

     

    Cowboys 60 Tigers 6

    74th minute:

    A scything 40m run from Morgan threatens to open the Tigers up again, but he's brought down 30m out.

     

    Cowboys 60 Tigers 6

    70th minute:

    Blair threw a shocking pass in front of Sironen and Taumololo steamrolled through to clean up and snatch the four-pointer from 10m. Thurston converts.

    Cowboys 60 Tigers 6

    68th minute:

    Tim Simona put a shoulder charge on Taumololo and the Cowboys attack 25m out.

    Cowboys 54 Tigers 6

    65th min:

    Linnett ran on to a pearler of a short ball from Lui then bulldozed a couple of onlookers in orange-coloured shirts to score. Thurston's kick cannons off the upright and over.

    Cowboys 54 Tigers 6

    62nd min:

    Another howler from the Tigers. Patterson's kick-off sails out on the full.

    Cowboys 48 Tigers 6

    60th minute:

    Normal service resumed. Moga jinked and swerved past a couple of uninterested tacklers to score out on the right flank. Thurston hasn't had much luck kicking from the right side and his effort swings wide.

    Cowboys 48 Tigers 6

    59th minute:

    Oh dear, Curtis Sironen fluffed the kick-off catch and the Cowbs attack 10m out. Another schoolboy error.

    Cowboys 44 Tigers 4

    57th minute:

    The power of the headband. Aaron Woods bullocked his way over from 15m. Great courage from the big hairy man. Cory Patterson converts from in front.

    Cowboys 44 Tigers 4

    55th minute:

    The Tigers have finally got some ball, but their attack lacks width, and their combinations on the edges are very ordinary. 

    Cowboys 44 Tigers 0

    51st minute:

    Beautiful inside ball from Thurston. He waited and waited then hit Morgan who carved up from 15m. Thurston converts from in front.

    Cowboys 44 Tigers 0

    49th min:

    A smart Robert Lui grubber earns the Cowbs a repeat set.

    Cowboys 38 Tigers 0

    48th minute:

    James Gavet looks seriously out of nick for the Tigers. Maybe it's the weight of that ton of hair, but he is consistently slow getting back the 10.

    Cowboys 38 Tigers 0

    46th minute:

    Tigers bomb a try as Lawrence's final pass is deflected away from Rowe who would have been in.

     

    Cowboys 38 Tigers 0

    44th minute:

    Keith Lulia won't be returning for the Tigers - he's out with concussion.

    Cowboys 38 Tigers 0

    43rd minute:

    Winterstein strolls over in the corner for the Cowboys' seventh try after a simple backline movement. Thurston converts from the sideline.

    Cowboys 38 Tigers 0

    42nd minute:

    Ooh, that's gotta hurt. Farah copped an accidental kick in the privates from James Gavet as they attempted to make a tackle. The Tigers' No.9 is down on his haunches.

    Cowboys 32 Tigers 0

     I did write that Farah's influence has been minimal but he has made 31 tackles, so he is definitely putting in.

    Cowboys 32 Tigers 0

    The turmoil-ridden Tigers have put up a shocker of a first half, offering next to no resistance against a slick Cowboys side. Thurston and Lui have been the best for the North Queenslanders, Lui's passing game in particular has been superb, while winger Matthew Wright already has three tries to his name. For the error-prone Tigers, Moses has been the most outstanding in that he has made the most glaring mistakes, while the rest of his teammates have been happy to wallow in mediocrity. Farah's influence has been non-existent. Can the Tigers claw some respectability from this match or will it end up a cricket score? Only time and a massive halftime roast from coach Potter will tell.

    Cowboys 32 Tigers 0

    36th minute:

    What's hard to fathom is how long it's taking the Tigers to set for scrums. It's like watching tired old cows come in for milking.

    Cowboys 32 Tigers 0

    33rd minute:

     

    The Tigers got their first chance in the Cowboys' 30, then snaffled a penalty for a ruck infringement, but Moses stuffed up big time throwing a dog of a pass to no one in particular.

    Cowboys 32 Tigers 0

    29th minute:

    Winterstein crashed over in the corner after slick passing from Thurston. He actually had time to stumble a bit - the Tigers' defence was that far gone. Thurston converts from the left-side touchline.

     

    Cowboys 32 Tigers 0

    25th minute:

    A neat ball from Thurston sent Taumalolo free to put on a massive Fittler-esque step off the right foot and score under the woodwork. Too easy. Thurston converts. What an awesome step that was from the big fella.

    Cowboys 26 Tigers 0

    23rd minute:

    The Cowboys are so confident, they're starting backline movements from their own try-line.

    Cowboys 20 Tigers 0

    21st minute:

    Huge moment: Tigers cross the halfway for the second time tonight.

    Cowboys 20 Tigers 0

    After 16 minutes, the Cowboys have had 82% of the ball. 

    Cowboys 14 Tigers 0

    14th minute:

    Matthew Wright scores a hattrick in less than 15 minutes. He soared above Kurtis Rowe and fell backwards to ground the ball from a Thurston bomb. Spectacular stuff. Thurston converts - at long last.

    Cowboys 14 Tigers 0

    10th minute:

    Poor, poor Tiges' defence as Matthew Wright almost walks in on the right-hand side. A swirling pass from Lui set that move in motion - he's playing very well tonight. Thurston's kick fails to gain altitude and ends under the crossbar.

    Cowboys 8 Tigers 0

    8th minute:

    Lawrence spills a crap pass from Moses and the Cowboys get the feed 40m out. Errors are cruelling the Tigers' progress.

    Cowboys 4 Tigers 0

    6th minute:

    Cowbs penalised twice in a row for lingering in the tackle. At last the Tigers make some headway, but a poor pass from Moses hits the touch judge.

    Cowboys 6 Tigers 0

    5th minute:

    Lui's short balls are proving very difficult for the Tigers to handle. 

    Cowboys 4 Tigers 0

    3rd minute:

    Quick hands from the Cowboys put Matthew Wright into space as he lunged for the line with a one-arm putdown. Horrible start for the Tiges. Thurston hooks the conversion across the face.

    Cowboys 4 Tigers 0

    1st minute:

    Schoolboy error from the kick-off. Moses watched the ball a moment too long and it ended up going dead. Cowbs attack 20m out. 

    Cowboys 0 Tigers 0

    Ominous stat for the Tiges: the Cowbs have won seven on the trot at home.
