Clearly, the Cowboys are still searching for their first win at their new home and the Gold Coast is yet to win in 2020.
And In what comes as a surprise both Gavin Cooper and Michael Morgan will not be lining up for the Cowboys, while Titans coach Justin Holbrook has rung the changes for just his third NRL game in charge of the club.
For the Gold Coast, the Phillip Sami at fullback experiment is over with Tyrone Roberts shifted from the halves to cover the long-term absence of the injured AJ Brimson.
Ash Taylor becomes the five-eight and Holbrook has turned to 26-year-old Jamal Fogarty to fill the halfback spot.
With Kallum Watkins having left the Titans to return home to UK to deal with family concerns, his centre position is filled by Dale Copley.
Kevin Proctor missed round two and is slated to make his return against the Cowboys in the second-row, along with Keegan Hipgrave who hasn’t played a game in the NRL since round 13 last year due to repeated concussions.
Shannon Boyd is to get his first taste of NRL in 2020 off the bench and promising young forward Moeaki Fotuaika returns to the starting side at prop.
Bryce Cartwright and Brian Kelly have been demoted to the extended bench. Utility Erin Clark becomes Titan No.153 off the bench.
This will be the first time for both teams to show how they’ll adjust to the latest NRL rule change
where, put briefly, a defensive ruck infringement such as holding down, hand on the ball, crowding at the play-the-ball or a leg pull will result in an immediate restart of the tackle count.
With one less referee on the field from now on and an emphasis from the NRL on faster play and fewer stoppages, just how much will these players feel encouraged to test the limits
Is Jason Taumalolo now officially unstoppable? In a year will Taumalolo rack up 450 run metres from one match and we’ll consider it normal? The time for questions is just about over, finally!
North Queensland got their only win this season against the Bulldogs at ANZ Stadium, where they raced to a 22-6 half-time lead and hung on for a 24-16 result.
However In the first week back at North Queensland Cowboys training since round two Gavin Cooper strained his calf
And with limited time for him to train before round three North Queensland coach Paul Green has declared Cooper’s “not worth the risk” to play this week. Morgan continues to recover from shoulder surgery.
Also, Mitchell Dunn slots into the second-row and the Cowboys will look to their new captain Jordan McLean and the likes of Josh McGuire, Kyle Feldt, Valentine Holmes and Justin O’Neill to replace the experience Cooper and Morgan bring.
