Cowboys dominate in second win


North Queensland Cowboys 26 defeat Gold Coast Titans 14.

Game Review.
The Cowboys vs Titans game saw the big brother up against the little brother in Queensland Rugby League. The game got off to slow start, but a hard fought fight as both teams settled for a penalty goal each in the first 20 minutes of the game. The Cowboys extended their lead through another 2 penalty goals to take the score out to 6-2 in what looked like it was going to be a low scoring game! The Cowboys finally went over the line when a good set play on the Titans line saw halfback Ben Hampton stroll over to score. Only a few minutes later, another brilliant set play by the Cowboys sent winger Kyle Feldt over in the corner to give the Cowboys a 16-2 half time lead.

The second half of the game was most definitely more exciting to start off. The Cowboys were on fire throwing some exciting attack the Titans way, but things turned back towards the Titans as a couple penalties gave the Titans repeat sets on the Cowboys line, along with the injury of Cowboys forward John Asiata who looks to of done a serious shoulder injury. Despite all the pressure, the Cowboys held strong, and kept the Titans to just 2 points with 25 minutes remaining in the game. The game was shortly deemed over when a storming Jason Taumalolo flew through the line to score for the Cowboys off the back of multiple penalties given by the Titans. The Cowboys kept the roll on when Michael Morgan delivered a beautiful short ball to Coen Hess on the Titans line to extend the lead for North Queensland. 

The Titans picked themselves up two late coselation tries through halfback Ash Taylor and Jarrod Wallace to make the score a little more respectful. It was a very ill disciplined game with over 20 errors made between the two teams, not to mention the 20 plus penalties in total. The Cowboys showed complete dominance dispite the sloppy performance from both teams.
