NRL 2019, Cowboys team roster news: Michael Morgan position switch, Justin Hodges


North Queensland coach Paul Green has been working with his team's backline to find some spark, and Maroons legend Justin Hodges thinks there is one more move he needs to make.

Prior to last Saturday's clash with Cronulla, Green put Ben Hampton and Jordan Kahu in the centers, with Te Maire Martin heading to the quarterback and Jack Clifford coming in five-eighth.

"They have no attack to be honest. There is no strike," said Hodges Only Queenslanders in Fox League.

"If you look at the sides that are at the top of the competition and for the sides that win the big finals, they have unbelievable packages going forward, but the attack is great, that's what wins the games, besides the great work . the attackers do the middle.

"They brought Clifford there, but I think they need to take Morgan to the eighth because he's a good football runner.

"He just adds that different dimension to his game and he can create opportunities for players.

"At the moment, there is no structure. They are running past the ball.

"The time is all wrong and they are going backwards and the sides are just starting to move away much sooner because their outer edges are going too fast over the line too early and that takes away all the pain of the attack."

Queensland legend Gorden Tallis agreed that Morgan should change his position, but he also noted his lack of defensive stance against the Sharks.

"Lots of pressure on Morgo & # 39; to enter the first receiver. I think he's better on the second receiver, "Tallis said.

"Coaching with Ben Barba throughout the off-season (the Sack of Beard) put a wrench in the works.

"They're trying to find a number 1 to tie the guys out.

"They are fighting a bit at the moment, but they can get back on top, but it's their attitude, they've lost a lot of plays in 30 points."

"That's not the Cowboys standard."
