Johnathon Thurston (pictured) will go into his final year in a Queensland jersey knowing he has just three more chances to cement his legacy as one of the greatest players ever to pull on the maroon jersey.

Thurston confimed this week that 2016 will be his final year in representative rugby league.

A vital part of the champion Queensland team, Thurston says he’s looking forward to one final series against the Blues that will feature two Origin games at Lang Park.
