Souths brace for Cowboys backlash

Afp
Thursday, June 26, 2014

SYDNEY - South Sydney are keen to avoid a repeat of a familiar script when they travel to Townsville to play North Queensland in round 16 of the NRL on Saturday.

The Cowboys have been roundly criticised after their loss to Newcastle on Monday, with their finals credentials coming under heavy scrutiny. The NRL's perennial underachievers, the Cowboys sit in 11th place with a 6-8 record and their hopes of a top four finish quickly fading.

Meanwhile, Souths have reaffirmed their credentials as a premiership heavyweight over the first half of the season.

Sound familiar?

With coach Neil Henry sacked just days before, the Rabbitohs travelled to Townsville for round 21 last season to face a cornered Cowboys side who needed to win all of their six remaining games to make the finals.
