Sydney Roosters v North Queensland Cowboys: Five burning questions - The Sydney Morning Herald

Why are the Cowboys continually underrated?

It was easy to surmise that once they lost Johnathan Thurston (in addition to Matt Scott) the season was over for North Queensland. And so it appeared, before the Red V parted and they found themselves in the finals after all. This team has plenty of remnants from the one that stole it in 2015 and they've done the job as underdogs two weeks in a row. There's a bit of a bubble up there in the tropics but given their talent and experience, as well as the rise and rise and rise of Michael Morgan, folks should hardly be so surprised at their efforts. They are a massive chance to reach another grand final.

Cowboys beat Roosters in NRL preliminary final - as it happened - The Guardian

Nothing short of a boilover, you’d have to say. The story is about the Cowboys, who are playing with both verve and steel at the most important part of the season. They’re genuinely getting better. Every plaudit you read about Michael Morgan this week will be deserved. It’s well worth forgetting about Johnathon Thurston for a brief second here - Morgan was every inch the superstar of tonight, and you can’t begrudge him his overwhelmingly deserved moment in the spotlight. He drove his team tonight - created nearly everything, kicked brilliantly, made huge tackles, and as they say, he iced the game with a composed field goal to finish off the Roosters.

Let’s deal with the Roosters. They seemed to play without any zip, drive, or enterprise - instead favouring a clinical approach that came up short. Could they have ad libbed a little more?

“It was disappointing to get that far and to...

NRL grand final 2017: North Queensland Cowboys halfback Michael Morgan credits Melbourne Storm's Cooper Cronk ... - The Sydney Morning Herald

Michael Morgan has revealed a candid heart-to-heart with Cooper Cronk has been the catalyst for his stunning late season form which threatens to crash the Melbourne halfback's potential NRL grand final farewell.

Only days before the Kangaroos' Anzac Test win earlier this year, Cronk urged Morgan to take control of the Cowboys in Johnathan Thurston's absence, advice which now could come back to haunt him.

Monday Bunker: Storm or Cowboys? Who will reign supreme? - NEWS.com.au

THEN there were two. The competition benchmark, the Melbourne Storm will do battle with this year’s Cinderella story, the Cowboys.

Michael Morgan put in another brilliant display to lead the Cowboys to their second grand final in three years. His opposite number in Saturday’s preliminary final, Mitchell Pearce, had no answer.

While Pearce will focus on next year, Morgan and the Cowboys will now take part in the most unlikely of grand finals.

And it wouldn’t be an NRL grand final without the dramatic storylines.

Will it be Billy Slater’s last game?

Will Paul Green sacrifice one of his finals heroes to make way for North Queensland stalwart Matt Scott?

WATCH THE MONDAY BUNKER REPLAY IN THE PLAYER ABOVE

It’s also the time of the year where the game comes together to celebrate its outstanding achievers.

Can anyone catch Melbourne skipper Cameron Smith, who is considered a walk-up start...

Pizza shop story behind how Jason Taumalolo became North Queensland's $10 million man - Fox Sports

JASON Taumalolo’s first contract with North Queensland was worth $1500.

It was a deal struck at a pizza shop in Townsville.

Six months ago he signed one of the richest deals in NRL history when he inked a 10-year, $10 million contract.

But long before Taumalolo would become a household name, he was a gifted 14 year-old playing alongside his 15-year-old brother in a team filled with teens two-to-three years older than him.

How Melbourne star Billy Slater slipped through fingers of North Queensland Cowboys - Fox Sports

BILLY Slater grew up a horse loving kid in Cowboy country and if not for a sliding doors moment when he was a teenager he’d probably still be there.

That’s right, the champion fullback who’s only ever worn purple at NRL level used to run around in his Innisfail backyard wearing a Cowboys jersey and imitating his favourite player, the long forgotten Reggie Cressbrook.

If his talent had been recognised back then he almost certainly would have signed his first contract with North Queensland and may have been preparing to line up against Cooper Cronk and Cameron Smith this Sunday for a crack at a premiership.
