Cowboys must up the ante in attack to beat Storm

Cowboys must up the ante in attack to beat Storm

You need only look at the face of Ethan Lowe for an example of the determination shown by North Queensland to reach the NRL grand final.

The North Queensland Cowboys battled bravely right to the end were barely in the contest right from the outset against a Storm side that were clinical and relentless from the opening whistle in Cronk's final game in purple.

"Cameron Munster and Tim Glasby will run out for the Melbourne Storm while North Queensland Cowboys hooker Jake Granville and Gavin Cooper will run out in blue and yellow".

They have instead been forced to move their final training session to Sydney's Jubilee Park in Kogorah. They get behind you. You are going to be better for the run for this year.

ANALYST: Ipswich Jets co-coach Shane Walker has given the QT the good oil on strategies he says can work for both teams in the NRL grand final.

Curtis Scott sealed the title - and their 10th straight win - minutes later when Josh Addo-Carr scooped up a Cowboys error deep in their own territory and found his centre. Their game plan without Thurston was sturdy and low-risk, good enough to get them past brittle opponents in September but no match for the Storm in October.

That they even made the finals was impressive.

In front of a crowd of 79,722 at ANZ Stadium, the big three of Cameron Smith, Billy Slater and Cronk then put on their signature three-man play for Addo-Carr to complete a brace.

And for the first 20 minutes of the second half, they were the better side.

Now out of contract, he must decide if he wants to play on in 2018.

'Thank you for everything you've done for me over my career, but especially the last few years. Armed with a mischievous smile and speed to burn, Addo-Carr was such a revelation on the left flank in his first season at the Storm that it's hard to remember the raw three-quarter who didn't seem to be going anywhere at Wests Tigers. They've been playing together for years, not just for Melbourne but for Queensland and Australia too, and know how to win big games.

"When he is at his best, Melbourne are at their best", he said.

'I'd just like to finish off by thanking one more person. and that's my wife, ' Slater said as he got choked up.

Their path to the Grand Final has been easy and dominant, and their dominance over the Cowboys in recent years is absolute.

The injured Slater watched from the sidelines 12 months ago as Cronk and his team-mates suffered a 14-12 upset to Cronulla Sharks in the season decider. Morgan has grown into one of the best halves in the league and Taumalolo might be the best player in the world full stop.
