They will go up against either the Parramatta Eels or Canberra Raiders, depending on which team prevails on September 16.

The winner will go through to the Grand Final on October 2, with the Cowboys second favourite with the bookies to win their second premiership, behind the Penrith Panthers.

The Cowboys’ Jeremiah Nanai and his partner Jordii buy their first house.


North Queensland have spent the year quietly climbing the NRL ladder, while away from the game, their squad has been busy on the property scene.

Jeremiah Nanai and partner Jordi Mahendrarajah have bought their first home together, suggesting they see their future in Townsville, amid contract talks over the 2022 breakout backrower’s future.

The couple, who are just 19 and 20 years old respectively, recently purchased a four-bedroom house, which was listed for offers over $549,000. On a 480sq m block, the property has the “ultimate kids cubby with a private letterbox, decking and a slippery dip”.

Kiwi lock Jason Taumalolo has been busy collecting properties Monopoly style in Queensland. He owns four properties worth around $1.6m in Belgian Gardens, The Gap, Mount Louisa and Condon.

Prop Jordan McLean owns an Alice River home bought in 2017 for $760,00, while Maroons forward Reuben Cotter owns a $237,000 unit in South Townsville, publicly available property records show and a $442,000 home in Railway Estate.

Coach of the year contender Todd Payten has also been in on the action, buying a $1.12m home off market in March last year in Mundingburra via Janice Gallagher Real Estate, property records reveal.

And their rivals have been just as busy when it comes to real estate.

Parramatta Eels superstar Mitchell Moses owns more than $4 million worth of real estate and has spoken about his desire to get involved in property development when his footy career ends.

The 27-year-old, who will face off with the Eels against Penrith in Friday night’s NRL 1st qualifying final at BlueBet Stadium, benefits from the guidance from his NRL legend uncle Ben Elias.

Moses’ property portfolio includes a Gladesville investment home worth around $1.9m, a $1.5m Epping property and a $600,000 Toongabbie investment unit.

“I like to look at the property market as much as possible to see what is going on, where I can buy and sell,” Moses told The Daily Telegraph.

“I have started something with my brother Stephen [who is a real estate agent]. Hopefully we can do some development when the time comes. Football is not going to be there forever.”

Eels forward Ryan Matterson recently enjoyed a $200,000 windfall when he sold his Botany investment unit for $1.12m.

Moses’ opposite on Friday night, Panthers skipper Nathan Cleary owns a tastefully renovated four-bedroom home not far from the Panthers’ home ground.

Cleary cleverly coughed up $1.05 million for an updated 1970s home just 5km from BlueBet Stadium in 2018.

His Panthers and NSW teammate Brian To’o recently bought his first home, with a difference.

The blockbusting winger bought the home for his parents, Fati and Fale.

To’o bought in Ropes Crossing, on the fringes of Penrith, for $859,100, last month.

He secured a 2015-built home sold off market through the local Ray White agent Vedant Agrawal.

It has three bedrooms and two bathrooms, on a 275 sqm block which traded for $419,500 in 2013, before its ­construction.

The Eels will play the Canberra Raiders on September 16 in the first semi final, while the Sharks will take on the Rabbitohs in the second semi the following day.

The Cowboys will then take on either the Eels or the Raiders in the first preliminary final on September 23, while the Panthers will run out against either the Sharks or the Rabbitohs on September 24.
