Cowboys mark JT's 300th with win over Sharks

Thurston turned in a solid performance in his milestone night, but apart from his grubber to seal the Cowboys' victory, appeared short on match fitness. On the whole, it was a scrappy affair with both sides well below their best.

Kyle Feldt began his season in ideal fashion, with a towering bomb getting enough hang time to allow a pack of Cowboys forwards to drive Matt Prior back into his own in-goal.

The Cowboys showed they were ready to play patient early, as Jake Granville rolled a grubber into the in-goal to force a repeat set. 

Jonathan Thurston backed new ‘ Roots Long Grain’ rice launched

This is a new rice product introduced under Trukai’s popular ‘ROOTS’ value brand, which is focused on providing a value for money, high quality rice for grass roots consumers.

“With the launch of our Roots Long Grain Rice range we are providing an affordable rice option to the low-income consumer, while still providing a product that is of high quality and flavour,” said Trukai GM Sales and Marketing, Andrew Daubney.

Thurston honoured to fulfil Murray's legacy

Clive Churchill medallist, three-time Golden Boot winner, Dally M Player of the Year a stunning four times, and now a premiership- and World Club Challenge-winning captain, Johnathan Thurston's rise to greatness coincided with his move north to team up with then-Cowboys coach, the late and great Graham Murray.

The North Queensland club's rise to greatness coincided with the recruitment of Murray in 2002.
