Sharks kept scoreless as Cowboys storm into NRL prelims

THE COWBOYS have stunned the Sharks to book a place in the NRL preliminary finals.

North Queensland ran riot over Cronulla in Townsville on Saturday night, with a staggering 39-0 victory, to head into next week’s clash against Melbourne with great momentum.

Man of the match Michael Morgan crossed the line twice, while tries also went to Justin O’Neill, Scott Bolton, Antonio Winterstein, Kyle Feldt and Ethan Lowe, with Johnathan Thurston (pictured) booting five conversions as well as a field goal.


Morgan picked up an ankle injury, but is expected to be fit to take on the Storm.

Next weekend’s other preliminary final is between the Brisbane Broncos and Roosters.
