The NRL season will be over for two more teams after this weekend as the road to the grand final continues.
The North Queensland Cowboys go into their sudden death semi-final on the back of a five match unbeaten run, and coach Neil Henry says they are full of confidence.
“We're playing some good football, and it's going to take a good performance to beat us,” he says.
But the Cowboys will take on the Sea Eagles without veteran Aaron Payne. The departing hooker was initially ruled out for the rest of the season with a knee injury, but the longer the Cowboys can keep their season alive, the better the chances of his making a return.
The Sea Eagles have been boosted with Jamie Lyon named to start despite a calf injury.
Meanwhile, the Raiders say they won't be overawed by the star studded bunnies in Sunday’s match.
And Blake Fergus could be the key to a Canberra win, with nine tries in the last ten matches.
A Raiders victory will take them a step closer to the big dance, somewhere they haven't been since 1984.
