XXXX things you need to know: Round 3 v Dragons

The North Queensland Toyota Cowboys travel to Sydney to take on the St George Illawarra Dragons at Netstrata Jubilee Stadium on Saturday evening.


The Cowboys are searching for their best start to a season in 17 years. A win on Saturday would mark three-straight to start 2024, a feat the Cowboys have not achieved since 2007, when Graham Murray’s side won their first four games on their way to a third-place regular season finish and a preliminary final berth.


North Queensland have enjoyed a successful run against the Dragons over the previous five seasons. Stretching back to 2019, the Cowboys have won six of the previous eight fixtures, including the past four. The two sides clashed once last season, with the Cowboys securing a 42-22 victory on the back of doubles to Tom Dearden, Kyle Feldt and Heilum Luki.


Boasting one of the best mullets in rugby league, Jack Gosiewski returns for his first NRL action in 2024. Gosiewski has been named on the bench, with Kulikefu Finefeuiaki promoted to the starting side to replace the injured Heilum Luki. The remainder of Todd Payten’s side remains unchanged.


Kyle Feldt equalled Matt Bowen’s all-time Cowboys try-scoring record of 130 last weekend and now needs just one to stand alone as the greatest try-scorer in club history. Feldt has crossed the stripe in each of the first two games of the season.
