Cronulla coach Shane Flanagan said he had mixed emotions as he was happy with his side's effort for all but the final five minutes of the game.

"The boys tried their backsides off for 75 minutes ... that last five is something I'd like to forget," he said post-match.

He said while the loss wouldn't cost them a place in the finals, it could cost them a home final if they don't manage to win and finish sixth in their last round match against the Cowboys.

Skipper Paul Gallen said the performance showed his team could compete with the top teams in the competition.

"The biggest thing for us is that we learn from that," Gallen said.

"The game goes for 80 minutes not 75, that's what we need to learn."
