Macca’s Match Up – 2017 Round 11 – Cronulla Sharks v North Queensland Cowboys
We did well last week with the last game of the round, so this week I’m flipping the tables and picking the first game for my Match Up.
It’s the Premiers against a weakened Cowboys side, who shocked many by beating the Bulldogs last weekend. But I think that it will be a harder competition against the Sharks tonight who are looking like a sure thing.
Cronulla’s defence is as good as it was when they won in 2016 and while JT might have been able to help North Queensland’s chances, without him, I think the big guns from the Shire including the likes of Fifita and Gallen will play a big part in helping the reigning Premiers prevail. Cronulla have been going strong since round one and it will be interesting to see if they can maintain their form after 26 rounds.
