Head to Head - Cowboys v Titans

Myles' defensive workload has been tremendous in most games and he has been playing big minutes. He knows what a task he has in this match against fellow international props Tamou and Matthew Scott. Now refreshed after playing an inspirational role for Queensland and carrying some niggling injuries, his go-forward and responsibility to curb the Cowboys' go-forward is integral to his team's chances.

Tamou's size alone make him a threat to any team - he can roll through the defensive line and take three defenders with him and also has a dangerous, if selective, offload. To average 132m this season (it was 146m in 2013) is outstanding and his form has lifted in recent weeks. The Titans will have to minimise the momentum Tamou and Scott give their side early in the tackle count.
