The Cowboys are coming for our Ranch

The high riding Cowboys are on their way down to 4 Pines Park this Friday night for a mouth-watering feed.

But to understand these men better from far North Queensland, you need to learn some true Cowboy expressions and Wild West slang phrases a little more.

There’s no doubt the Sea Eagles will need to be In Apple Pie Order (top shape or high quality) to get over the top of these robust Cowboys.

They have some big outlaws in Coen Hess and Jason Taumalolo, but we have some great protection ready to defend our 'ranch' in Toff Sipley and Josh Aloiai.

Fortunately, we have an Ace in the Hole (hideout) in 4 Pines Park. Four wins from four matches has made our home a Bone Orchard (graveyard or cemetery) for opposition teams this season.

We know some of you City Slickers might be caught up in a Bag of Nails (chaos; confusion) about how you are going to leave work early for the 6pm muster.

And we don’t want you to be in a Bad Box (caught in a bad situation) at work with your boss as we know you are far from a Bad Egg (mean or untrustworthy person).

However, if your stable is based on the Northern Beaches and you can get to 4 Pines Park, then don’t be a Barn Sour (loves being a homebody).

Leave those fascinating Wild West Weekly (series of cheap paperbound novels about various western adventures) by the camp fire for just this one night.

So, put on your Best Bib and Tucker (nice clothes) and bring your Calamity Jane (your Queen of Spades) out for a wonderful night of rugby league to show her you are not a Coffee Boiler (lazy person).

Remember, like any good attacking side, and the Sea Eagles are certainly that, if you Hang Fire (procrastinate or delay), you may be left behind.

So, Get A Wiggle On (hurry) for your tickets. The Cowboys are coming, and we need you at the ‘Fortess’.

You may even have A Hog-Killin’ Time (really fun time).
