Green con­fi­dent of fin­ish­ing strong

Townsville Bulletin - - SPORT -

NORTH Queens­land’s quest for history starts tonight with coach Paul Green con­fi­dent the Cowboys are men­tally and phys­i­cally ready to launch into the most im­por­tant part of the sea­son.

For­get the first 18 weeks of the sea­son, it means noth­ing for the Cowboys now.

The 12 wins have sim­ply given the club the great­est chance in their 20- year history to break a premier­ship drought and now it’s time to go on with the job.

The play­ers are re­freshed and re­ju­ve­nated af­ter a 16day break be­tween games, ev­ery­one en­joyed at least a full week of hol­i­days and now they could be just 11 games away from premier­ship glory.

But Green is adamant the thoughts of his men are no fur­ther ad­vanced than tonight’s Brook­vale Oval.

“We’ve had good energy at train­ing, so hope­fully that trans­fers into a good per­for­mance,” Green said.

“Of­ten you’re flat the first game out of a bye, but I think it will hold us in good stead for the rest of the year with ev­ery­one get­ting the chance to freshen up men­tally.”
