Johnathon Thurston has been declared fit to take on the Kiwis in Friday nights ANZAC Test match in Canberra.

Thurston has been sidelined for the past four weeks after injuring his calf but once again, his remarkable recuperative powers have allowed him to be ready for the Test match.

Kangaroos halfback Cooper Cronk says he has absolutely no doubt that Thurston will be fit for what will be the first of a number of significant games  in Thurstons final season in the Green & Gold.
