NFL – Johnathon Thurston (pictured) has declared himself unavailable for the Indigenous All Stars clash in Brisbane next month.

The side will instead be lead by South Sydney skipper Greg Inglis.

Thurston has been a part of the All Stars clash since its inception but says while he’s fully fit, with the World Club Challenge to be played the week after, the better option at this stage of the season is to miss the All Stars game.
