Grand Final Winner North Queensland Cowboys

Rugby league - NRL 2018 - 29 Jul 08:50

Last season North Queensland Cowboys had some devastating luck with injuries

They spent most of the season without their main man Johnathan Thurston. He's their leader & captain, the 4 time Dally M medal winner and one of the best players in the world.

They also had long spells without the likes of Matt Scott, Jason Tamulolo, Gavin Cooper, Justin O’Neill, Lachlan Coote, Antonio Winterstein, Michael Morgan, Patrick Kaufusi, John Asiata & Kalyn Ponga.

You could almost make a top squad just from their injured players, it really was ridiculous.

Going towards the end of the regular season the injuries were taking their toll, they were in real danger of missing out on a top 8 spot and place in the play-offs.

They eventually nicked 8th spot though, giving them a poor draw the play-offs. They then did the unthinkable and actually made the Grand Final! Eventually losing out 34-6 in the final against the Storm.

A remarkable season given their injuries problems, I thought they'd miss out on the top 8 but to make the final was something else.

This season we can expect them to be MUCH better as every one is back fit.

With a fully fit squad they have one of the best sides in the NRL. Just think if that battered side from last season can make the Grand Final then surely a fully fit squad this season can win it right?!

It's also Johnathan Thurston's last season before retirement so expect him to go out with a bang.

With everyone back and this being the great JT's final season I'm almost thinking that North Queensland Cowboys will be the team to beat in the play-offs.

6/1 is a very good price in my opinion.
