The Sea Eagles saw this out well. FULLTIME. They soar into the top eight.

79min

Hammer almost hurts them. Cust tries to dribble one deep but Hamiso Tabuai-Fidow goes about 60 metres just beating players for fun. It sets up something for the Cowboys but the move breaks down. CHALLENGE from the Cowboys. UNSUCCESSFUL.

Cowboys try to throw it around but the final pass to Feldt is forward, lost.. take your pick.

40min

Here we go! Hope everyone is refreshed and comfy. We're ready for the second half as Manly strolls out with a six-point advantage.

That was almost a slips catch from Jack Gosiewski from the Eagles. The bleach blonde forward grabs a rebounding ball but makes the spill then Cowboys return in kind. Scrum Cowboys.

4min

Pressure is building here! DCE this time rolls one through and catches the defenders in-goal. Levi went close, so did Cust but the Cowboys have held firm thus far.

2min

PENALTY SEA EAGLES! Cowboys after a short kick were too eager getting off their line. Offside.

KICK-OFF! Sea Eagles loft it high and we're underway!

We get our first look at Josh Hannay as Cowboys coach. He has chosen the box for his debut game, as we switch back to the Sea Eagles rooms! They are ready to stroll out, wearing their maroon jerseys onto the Townsville surface. Next up, the Cowboys head out in their home kit, looking to continue strong form at home. Addin Fonua-Blake is back for the visitors as well. Kick-off is moments away

Happy Friday! We've all got through another week, so sit back and enjoy this footy double header! We start off up north! North Queensland after their battling effort against Penrith, host a resurgent (maybe?) Manly side after they ambushed the Eels last Saturday. Both sides need the points and in quite calm conditions we should see some exciting football! So grab a drink, food and kick up your feet! Kick-off is 6:00PM AEST.
