No doubting the tough match against the Scum, but Sundays crunch match for the Gummies may leave Manly unpressured going into the last round of the season. The Sharks look the goods at home with arguably their best side for years running around. And beating the Rorters added an air of confidence to their charge. But the Sharks have traditionally been missing around this time of year, and while they have wrapped up a finals position, it is the Cowboys who need to put in the hard yards this week. After hitting some form with 4 nice wins, North Queensland are anything but assured of a finals spot. With 5 teams fighting for what is really only one spot, a win for the Cows should cement their position, and give them options with a home game against the Tigers in their final match. The Sharks are great at home, but better on a cold windy night, so not that great advantage on Sunday arvo. I expect the Cowboys to be hungrier than the Sharkies, and that can only be a good thing for Manly, who lock in a 4th spot with a Cowboy upset.
