Road ahead: Rounds 13-26
With six of their first nine games being played at home, the North Queensland Toyota Cowboys are now in the midst of a tricky period where just two of eight games will be played at 1300SMILES Stadium.
After back-to-back Sydney matches – with split results versus the Bulldogs and Sharks – the Cowboys will embark on consecutive road trips, firstly to Darwin to take on the Eels, and then to Melbourne to tackle perennial heavyweights the Storm.
That match in Melbourne is shaping to be a key moment in the Cowboys' title quest as it will be played without both teams' State of Origin players, a true test of squad resilience and depth.
There's plenty of big-game footy ahead for Cowboys members and fans!
