The Rabbitohs have flexed their premiership muscle and crushed Manly's title prospects in the process, taking an emphatic 40-24 victory at Allianz Stadium.
Over 80 minutes of a semi-final clash 10 years ago, the North Queensland Cowboys came of age as a club and won over the locals for good.
Don't think for a second either side will have forgotten the Rabbitohs being lapped 30-20 by the Sea Eagles in last year's grand final qualifier.
The Broncos must be leading the Cowboys after 20 minutes if they are any chance of causing an upset in Saturday night's Elimination Final at 1300SMILES Stadium.
The truth behind the first finals meeting between the Cowboys and Broncos a decade ago.
The first weekend of the finals wraps up with two teams that are precariously placed given the new finals system.
Penrith have ended the Warriors' season with a 22-6 win, done Brisbane a massive favour and earned themselves a top-four berth in the process.
The Titans have come back from 18-0 down at half time to stun the finals-bound Bulldogs 19-18 with a field goal in golden point extra time.
Newcastle capped off a strong finish to a disappointing season in style, racing out 40-10 winners against the Dragons on Old Boys' Day.
Penrith are chasing a top-four spot and the Warriors are most likely fighting for their season, this game also affects a host of other sides' finals placings.
