The North Queensland Cowboys have finally earned their first NRL win outside Townsville for more than 10 months with a 36-18 win over Cronulla.
If you don’t feel for the plight of the Shiremen in 2014, you just may have ice running through your veins.
The Cowboys seem to think they have called the bluff of Sharks captain Paul Gallen, who they are expecting to play on Friday night despite a biceps injury.
Rising Sharks players David Fifita and Jacob Gagan have both signed on for another two years at the club.
He's already shown he has the power to match it with the "big boys" but young Sharks winger Jacob Gagan is just happy to be playing alongside Cronulla's stars.
Sharks skipper Paul Gallen will play again for Cronulla this season after scans on his injured bicep revealed he will not require surgery.
After their past two brilliant comebacks, the shoe was on the other foot for the Sharks when they lost 30-18 after being up 18-0 after 36 minutes.
From the highest of highs to the lowest of lows, interim Sharks coach James Shepherd has felt the full spectrum of coaching in the NRL in just two games.
Newcastle put a tough week behind them by coming back from 18-0 down to record a 31-18 victory over Cronulla on Sunday afternoon.
One of these teams will walk away from Remondis Stadium with a hat-trick of wins in the bag and with a finals berth still a mathematical possibility.
