Thursday, July 9, 7.50 PM, Round 9, Queensland Country Bank Stadium, Townsville, North Queensland Cowboys take on Sydney Roosters NRL Match Preview

Roosters coming off a loss against the Storm who some believe to be the best regular game seen in twenty years, Cowboys coming off a loss that could be considered embarrassing thanks to the Parramatta Eels who were relentless and deserving of the win, Cowboys will be out for redemption and the Roosters will turn up to show all the doubters last weeks loss was a minor discrepancy, both teams contain giants in their forward packs whoever lays the platform will have control of the game, an interesting matchup with Valentine Homes playing on the wing.
