Toyota Cowboys coach Paul Green says his team have yet to find their rhythm in 2014 as they head into a Monday Night Football clash with the Gold Coast Titans at Robina tonight.
A completion rate of just 68% – the second worst in the competition – from their opening three games makes it clear where North Queensland will be looking to improve in round four as they try to end a two-game losing run.
The majority of those errors have come when the Cowboys have been attacking the opposition’s line.
“At this stage of the year, it’s really more about us,” Green said of his preparations in the lead-up to the second Queensland derby of the year.
“We haven’t found our rhythm yet as a team and we haven’t really been consistent with how we play.
“We’re working hard on a few different things and the boys are improving.
“We’ve just got to make sure we get it right.
“The boys have acknowledged what we need to do better which is important. That’s the first step to improving.”
The Cowboys and Titans came face to face at Broadbeach this morning when their game-day swims almost coincided.
As the Coast squad were walking off the beach, the North Queenslanders arrived, leading to some friendly banter and chat between the two teams.
The Cowboys are expected to be 1-17 tonight with Joel Riethmuller to warm up as 18th man.
