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 2014, the Cowboys again progressed to the finals after finishing fifth in the regular season. After comprehensively defeating the Broncos 32-20 in the elimination finals the side controversially lost to the Roosters 31-30 in the next round. The loss sparked outrage across the rugby league community and triggered the side’s star playmaker, Jonathan Thurston, to proclaim that the NRL administration did not want to see the Cowboys in the finals.
