After their stunning win over Cronulla Sharks last night, North Queensland Cowboys Coach, Paul Green, is adamant that a bigger task lays ahead for them when they go up against the Melbourne Storms in the NRL grand final qualifier.
The Cowboys successfully crushed the Sharks’ hopes of ending a 49-season title drought with a 39-0 victory at the 1300SMILES Stadium in Townsville, Australia.
In their 20th anniversary season, the North Queensland outfit is now focused on meeting the Storms in the NRL preliminary finals for the fourth time in club history and the first time since 2007.
Coach Paul Green said that he was happy with the boys’ performance, adding that there was still room for improvement.
“I don’t want to sound too harsh on them but we will need them to be (better) over the next week or two.”
Co-captain of the Cowboys, Matt Scott, shared the coach’s sentiments: Melbourne is a different kettle of fish. We can’t get too far ahead of ourselves.”
Cowboys co-captain Johnathan Thurston added: “We still have a mountain to climb”.
