Tigers vs Cowboys match preview

After 2 last-minute wins against the fancied Eels and Rabbitohs in recent weeks, the Tigers looked to be turning their season around. However they came up short against the Dragons and Manly, despite some strong attacking plays against the latter.

The Cowboys keep improving this season and in recent weeks have knocked over the Raiders, Titans, Eels and Knights. Admittedly they're not all powerhouse teams, but the Cowboys are finding form to now sit fourth in attack.

We expect the Cowboys to continue their strong form of late and chalk up their fifth win in a row.
