Johnathan Thurston may be one of the game’s most dangerous play-makers, but for Adam Reynolds, the half is just one of many Cowboys ready to take their opportunities this Saturday night at ANZ Stadium.
Reynolds will line up against Thurston, who will wear the number seven for the North Queensland outfit in Saturday’s round 24 clash. But Reynolds says his side is wary of this week’s opponents, who narrowly went down to the Panthers on Monday night.
“They’ve been playing some good footy,” said Reynolds.
“Any team that has him (Johnathan Thurston), Matt Scott and the rest of their players – it’s definitely going to be a tough ask. We’re going to have to prepare well and turn up on the night.”
Before going down to the third placed Panthers on Monday by a single point, the Cowboys had won four matches in a row, including a 64-6 obliteration of the Wests Tigers just one week previous.

The Rabbitohs have now won five games in succession, including a commanding victory over competition leaders, Manly-Warringah, with Reynolds playing an instrumental role.
But despite the solid performances, Reynolds put his showings down to the hard work of his teammates.
“Credit goes to the team,” said Reynolds.
“We’ve been holding onto the ball and playing some good football which makes my job a lot easier.”
