Townsville Bulletin - - SPORT -

Michael Mor­gan, left, and Scott Bolton, be­low, have lifted their games to an­other level for most of the sea­son, and they will have to con­tinue to do so. Mor­gan reg­is­tered 11 tackle breaks against Mel­bourne last week and has made it a fo­cus to take on the de­fen­sive line. His set plays with full­back Lach­lan Coote are get­ting bet­ter each week as he ad­justs to life with­out Thurston. Bolton has taken on a lead­er­ship role on and off the field with Matt Scott out, and he has been in near ca­reer best form. For the Cow­boys to go far into Septem­ber, the fringe for­wards who have been thrown into the deep end like Corey Jensen, left, and Sam Hoare need to at least break even with their ri­vals when they come off the bench.
