Last updated: 10 March, 2017

North Queensland CowboysThe North Queensland Cowboys were introduced to the NRL in 1995, and play their home matches in Townsville, the region’s largest city.

North Queensland backed up their premiership win with a strong campaign in 2016. 17 wins saw them finish inside the NRL’s top four and while they were able to rebound from a qualifying loss to Melbourne with a semi final win over arch-rivals Brisbane, a preliminary final loss to Cronulla ended their title defense.

Senior coach: Paul Green
Captains: Jonathon Thurston, Matthew Scott
