AAP writes:  If the Cowboys are ever going to win a game in Sydney this year, they are 0-7 so far, surely this is it. With Origin over, now is their chance against last-placed Cronulla even if they have been hit hard by injuries. Who knows what the Sharks will toss up after their past three efforts but injured skipper Paul Gallen (biceps) said now they are out of the finals hunt they aim to win all their remaining home games. With Johnathan Thurston and James Tamou back from Origin, the Cowboys should have too much class. Thurston is swapping his No.7 jersey for No.16 in a tribute to Alex McKinnon in the round dedicated to him. Anthony Tupou is in for Gallen at lock with Andrew Fifita to start at prop.

Key: Whatever happens, or doesn’t happen, on the Cowboys’ plane flight to Sydney. They have to crack it for a win in the Harbour City to keep their finals hopes alive.
