David Maiden was appointed as the Pride's new coach. In the latter half of the season the Pride won 11 consecutive matches and finished in fourth place. They made the Grand Final, beating Norths Devils 30-20 at Suncorp Stadium to become Premiers. Captain Chris Sheppard won the Duncan Hall Medal for his man-of-the-match performance in the Grand Final, which was his last game before retirement.
