North Queensland Cowboys

North Queensland CowboysThe North Qld Cowboys were introduced to the NRL in 1995 and played in the Super League in 1997. It took nine seasons for the club to make its maiden finals appearance after finishing many years at the root of the Premiership ladder. The Cowboys have now become a regular in finals football, making their maiden Grand Final appearance in 2005 whilst also making Preliminary finals in 2004 and 2007.

In 2015 the Cowboys won their first Premiership in a nail-biting Grand Final. Trailing to the Brisbane Broncos with just seconds remaining, a Kyle Feldt try pushed the game into golden-point, where a Jonathan Thurston field goal sent the Provan-Summons to North Queensland for the first time.
