Cowboys vs Titans Betting Tips & Match Preview

It is a Queensland clash this Friday as the Cowboys host the Titans in Townsville as round three of the NRL season continues. 

North Queensland is looking to maintain an eight year unbeaten stretch against the Titans, who have not lost against the Gold Coast at the venue since 2012. 

Cowboys Form & Team News

The Cowboys split their opening two games of the NRL season before the hiatus, losing to the Broncos in round one before bouncing back sharply against the Bulldogs on May 19.

The North Queenslanders will be hoping that Valentine Holmes can make more of an impact after an unexpectedly quiet return to the NRL. Holmes is one of the league's most explosive players and represents great value in the anytime try scorer market.

The Cowboys team for Friday night can be found below:

1. Valentine Holmes 2. Kyle Feldt 3. Justin O’Neill 4. Esan Marsters 5. Ben Hampton 6. Scott Drinkwater 7. Jake Clifford 8. Josh Mcguire 9. Jake Granville 10. Jordan McLean 11. Mitchell Dunn 12.

Titans Form & Team News

It didn't surprise anyone to see the Titans drop their first two games prior to the Covid19 enforced hiatus, but coach Justin Holbrook will be disappointed in their lack of fight before the break. The Titans lost by a combined 58 points against the Raiders and Eels to sit anchored to the bottom of the ladder.

Is it too early to put a line through the Titans in season 2020? Another heavy loss on Friday would almost rule them out of finals contention. 

The Titans team for Friday night can be found below:

1. Tyrone Roberts 2. Anthony Don 3. Dale Copley 4. Tyrone Peachey 5. Phillip Sami 6. Ashley Taylor 7. Jamal Fogarty 8. Moeaki Fotuaika 9. Nathan Peats 10. Sam Lisone 11. Kevin Proctor 12.

Cowboys vs Titans Match Up

The battle of the fullbacks will be the key match up to watch heading into Friday night. Holmes failed to fire in the opening two rounds of the season, but we're anticipating a return to his best form in Townsville. Tyrone Roberts isn't the glamorous player Holmes is but he's work ethic got him into the NRL and we're anticipating a workman-like performance.
