North Queensland coach Paul Green knows every Roosters play having helped mastermind last year’s premiership, but the rookie Cowboys mentor isn’t the only ex-Roosters plotting the premier’s downfall on Friday night with 5 Cowboys facing their former club.
Kane Linnett, Tautau Moga, Rory Kostjasyn, James Tamou and Glenn Hall have all worn a Roosters jersey at some level, but online bookmaker sportsbet.com.au doesn’t see them having an impact on the scoreboard, pricing the group at $2.00 to come up tryless.
At the other end of the scale, the 5 ex-Roosters are paying $67 to combine for 4 or more tries.
There’s been more than twice the amount of money placed on the Cowboys to win the match, but the Roosters remain solid $1.47 favourites to progress to a preliminary final showdown against the Rabbitohs.
“The Cowboys price of $2.75 is obviously looking juicy to punters who are extremely confident of an upset. Paul Green’s inside information on the Roosters is definitely an advantage in such a big game,” said sportsbet.com.au’s Christian Jantzen.
