Cameron Smith believes the North Queensland Cowboys are better placed than any other team in the past decade to win back to back titles.

Do you think think Cowboys can win the Premiership in 2016?

“Out of any team of the past 10 years, they’ve got the best shot of anyone,” the Storm skipper said. “They’ve still got their squad, nearly every player from their grand final team is back there again. It’s going to be another season of experience for the younger guys and they’ll get a lot of confidence from last year. Every team is going to get them … [The pressure can be suffocating] but it can make you play really well also.

“It doesn’t matter who you play against, you know you’ve got to be on your best game every week. It’s probably a good thing they’re isolated up there a bit, there’s an advantage of playing half a season in Townsville. It’s a long way for everyone to travel to play, so they’ve made that a real fortress last season.”
