Taumalolo can lead Cowboys' 'best ever' pack


//

Jason Taumalolo’s “freakish” performance in North Queensland’s 24-12 win over the Dragons on Saturday night has set tongues wagging over the “best forward pack ever at the Cowboys”.

With 301-metres to his name the 120kg forward muscled his will over the Dragons defensive line in a performance that had fans branding his infamous $10million contract over 10-years a “bargain”.

The Cowboys forward pack comprised of Josh McGuire, Matthew Scott, Jake Granville, Cohen Hess and Jordan Mclean had club great Johnathan Thurston hailing it the greatest he’d seen, a feat that NRL legend Peter Sterling put down to the professionalism of their front-man Taumalolo.

 “We’ve always had power forwards in the game…but with professional football these days the work they put in, Jason Taumalolo is just next level,” he explained.

“He’s a freak, he is a beast.

 “He started on the left edge on this occasion. He’s played his best footy in the middle, but starting with Josh McGuire that pushed him to the edge.

“He looked more comfortable back in the middle I thought, but what a good quandary for Paul Green to have.

“He’s got some really nice things he can do there in relation to moving things around if he feels the need.”

Despite his physicality, Taumalolo’s durability is another factor that makes him such an important piece of the Cowboys puzzle said Jillaroos great Ruan Sims, who thinks the forward is “worth a lot more” than what North Queensland paid.

“He’s not that injury prone so they get a lot of use out of him,” she explained.

“He was phenomenal and they just ended up squeezing the dragons out of the game.

“Jason Taumalolo, I think 10m dollars over 10 years is a bargain, he’s going to be worth a lot more.”
