Friday night football in Round 10 will feature two interesting matchups in Queensland. First up, the Cowboys will start a new era without Paul Green against the Sea Eagles. Meanwhile, the Broncos could be in for a tough night against the Storm at Suncorp Stadium.
(Fri, Jul 24 6:00pm)
The Cowboys horror 2020 season just continues as they’ve now sacked head coach Paul Green after a 3-7 record. With plenty of injuries and one of the youngest sides in the NRL, it’s been a tough ask for Green this season. So we’ll see if the coaching change gives them a spark on their home turf this week. Last week’s defeat against the Panthers in Penrith was a decent performance so there’s hope for the Cowboys if they can get a win on the board soon.
After a dreadful second-half display against the Dragons in Round 9, the Sea Eagles looked like a different side in Round 10. After just 40 minutes, Manly led 22-4 after 4 first-half tries. While the Eels came back in the second half, the damage was already done as Manly held on for an important 22-18 victory. Coming into this away game in North QLD, the Sea Eagles will welcome back Addin Fonua-Blake into the front row and Paseka moves back to the bench.
Tough game to predict here with both sides capable of inconsistent performances. The Cowboys have been giving up plenty of points lately but the new coach factor could spark them. Meanwhile, the Sea Eagles are the better defensive side and will be confident after upsetting the top of the ladder Eels. Considering the last meeting resulted in a 2 point margin, we do believe this should be a close contest between two teams that are just outside the top 8 and desperate for 2 points.

48-0 sums up another woeful performance by the Broncos against the Tigers last Friday night. They were simply outmuscled by the Tigers, highlighted by a 773 run metre differential after 80 minutes. So Anthony Seibold has been forced into structural team changes to keep his job alive. Which starts with the out of form Anthony Milford moving back to fullback and out of the defensive line. Tom Dearden will come into the starting side at halfback and Brodie Croft moves to 5/8th for the clash against his former side. Meanwhile, the Broncos have lost Oates, Luke, Isaako and Niu to injury.
Melbourne are coming off a cruisy 42-6 win against the Titans last Friday in their first home game on the Sunny Coast. Nelson Asofa-Solomona had his best game of the season with 2 tries off the bench and Tino Faasuamaleaui gave Keegan Hipgrave nightmares in defence - luckily the Titans have signed Tino up for 2021 onwards. Cam Munster also made a successful return from injury in another positive for Craig Bellamy’s men. At this stage, the 3rd placed Storm are unchanged for Friday night's clash. But Suliasi Vunivalu is a chance of returning before kick-off and that would see a backline reshuffle.
The bad news for the Broncos is that the Melbourne Storm absolutely love playing at Suncorp Stadium as sort of a second home, especially against Brisbane. Such as the Storm have won 6 straight games at the venue (including the 27-25 win against the Roosters recently) and haven't lost against the Broncos here since Round 2, 2009! So while we see another comfortable Storm in the making, we find more value in the Over total since the Broncos could easily give up 40+ points themselves.
