NRL pundit Nathan Sims said after a fantastic run home winning six games in a row, it feels like the Cowboys are never good enough.
“Last year was meant to be our year we did everything right and due to some controversial decisions we were booted out,” he said.
“History has once again repeated itself, if we are ever going to win we will have to bring our A-game and are going to have to fight for everything in the finals.”
The Cowboys have since been kicked out of the finals and the Sharks will go on to play Manly Sea Eagles on Friday night.
