What is Wrong with the Cowboys??? Hayne Explodes

The Parramatta Eels, courtesy of some brilliance from Jaryd Hayne and an insipid North Queensland Cowboys side, returned to form with a convincing 36-24 victory. Hayne, stung by criticism, has returned to his brilliant best as the Eels threaten to do the unthinkable, like 2009, and threaten for the title again. Rarely do you see one side so reliant on the form of one player, as the Eels are with Hayne.

While talking about reliance, the Cowboys are in a similar position with Jonathon Thurston, however this is quickly becoming an annual farce of no form, no wins and no pride. Why the coach moved Matty Bowen back to fullback and replaced him with Grant Rovelli is beyond most people that know a bit of rugby league. But it as again their defence that lost them the game. No-one doubts their attacking potential, they must learn how to stop attacks, before they will consistently win football games.

Surely there must be a cleanout in Townsville, as this side has been mediocre for too long. Some things must change, their fans deserve better.
