The surface at Townsville starting to look dangerous. Huge divots all over the field.

Sutton with a good stint.

Surprised we have not gone right more often. Cowboys seem light out there.

Had a foot out I think.

Curtis Scott has had a promising half. Hitting the line with much more impact than we've seen since the competition resumed.

I don't recall anybody saying we wouldn't miss him on the field.

Williams can't handle the heat and humidity? Would be a shock for the Englishman.

I was looking for a solid 20 minutes start. Was probably the worst opening to a game for us this season.

Wighton needs to get his head in the game.

Curtis Scott showing us something tonight. Nice ball skills in that try. His hit ups have been excellent. Yet to be really tested in defense bit done everything right so far.

Agreed. Their defence on that edge is raggedy as.

I think this is Scott's best game for us, so far. Semi looks stable. Bateman is a beast and we have missed him on that side. Rapa still making metres. Starling looks good again.

Scott has been good.

Team has been ordinary. Just a big bunch of nothingness, going through the motions

It's been a regular theme at Cowboys home games since the resumption. I think the same day travel has seen lot of Southern teams struggle early in the game. Takes them time to warm into it. I don't think any visiting team have been near their best up there.

Happy with that first half from Curtis. Ran the ball hard and showed a good set of hands for the Williams try. Cowboys have not targeted him much in defence if at all.

Harawira-Naera fresh on the bench still. He must be desperate to get out there finally.

Interesting, if we get an ugly win I'll happily take it

That's about as warm as the UK gets in the peak of summer, and its no where near as humid as Townsville.

Lets hope this half can be a spring board to get Scott back into some good football
If he can simply do this for a few weeks... that is to make the right pass, carry strongly without error and be unnoticed in defence, then that'll be a good base to rebuild from.
Early days, game is only halfway done but that this is a much improved performance

Scott maybe our best player in that first half. Papa and Tapine also good.

Wighton really needs to straighten up his running and energy.

He certainly felt that
Gina Riley: Oh, come on, John. That’s a bit old hat, the corrupt IOC delegate.
John Clarke: Old hat? Gina, in the scientific world when they see that something is happening again and again and again, repeatedly, they don’t call it old hat. They call it a pattern.
