North Queensland Cowboys v Cronulla Sharks
Round 25, 2011
Dairy Farmers Stadium

Despite the records heavily in the Sharks’ favour, the Cowboys won both 2011 clashes.

In Round 25 in Townsville, the Cowboys came from behind with 10 minutes to go to beat the Sharks 28-20. The win, which pushed North Queensland into the top four with one round to play, came at a cost however, with boom rookie forward Tariq Sims breaking his leg. Another young forward, 18-year-old prop Jason Taumalolo stole the show for the home side, scoring two tries.

Earlier in the season at Toyota Stadium in Round 7, the Cowboys recorded an emphatic 30-12 victory. The Sharks, however, could blame the loss on a crippling injury toll, with backline stars Albert Kelly and Nathan Gardner forced from the field with leg injuries.
