Johnathan Thurston previews the Cowboys 2013 season.
Victims of what fans will call a semi-final robbing, the North Queensland Cowboys were extremely unlucky to miss out on a Grand Final appearance last season.
Riding on the impressive form of Jonathan Thurston and dynamite fullback Matt Bowen the Cowboys will be hoping to carry that momentum into the 2013 season.
Arguably the best player in the NRL, Thurston has been playing better than ever and the rest of the team has been keeping up.
With a forward pack led by Australian representatives Matt Scott and James Tamou the North Queensland team now boasting Clint Greenshields from the Catalan Dragons, will be a dominant force in attack.
This season may be the opportunity the Cowboys have been waiting for to clinch that elusive premiership title. They already proved they are the new big names of Queensland after tumbling their ‘big brother’ Brisbane Broncos out of the finals.
