It was a victory to the Cowboys in the most recent clash between these two teams at Dairy Farmers Stadium in Round 20 last year.
North Queensland outgunned the Tigers 29-16 in a great display of attacking football. Both sides really chanced their arm with a combined 13 line-breaks, 11 half-breaks, 29 offloads and 94 tackle-breaks.
Fullback Matt Bowen was instrumental in the victory for the hosts – ‘Mango’ delivered an awesome display (nine runs for 130 metres), with Matt Scott the best of the forwards with 179 metres and four offloads.
For the visitors, Liam Fulton had a big dig, recording 43 tackles, six tackle-breaks, two offloads, a try assist and a try in a strong performance.
