It was the title defence that never really got going.

The Premiership curse continues with the Cronulla Sharks bundled out of the NRL Finals by the North Queensland Cowboys

In a back and forth encounter, a resilient Cowboys side held on for a 15-14 extra-time win courtesy of a Michael Morgan field goal to end the Sharks dream of going back-to-back. 

Not since the great Brisbane Broncos side of 1992/1993 has a side successfully defended their Premiership.

Will anyone ever go back-to-back?
