Friday, July 24, 6.00 PM, Round 11, Queensland Country Bank Stadium, Townsville, North Queensland Cowboys take on Manly Sea Eagles NRL Match Preview

The Cowboys aimed up against the Panthers and competed for the whole game, unfortunately, only days later they lost their head coach Paul Green which makes their response this round somewhat unpredictable, the Sea Eagles, on the other hand, are looking to stay within the grasp of the top eight, Manly need to make it two in a row to stay in contention for a top-eight position and with AddinFonua-Blake back in the side, it should only help.
