Sometimes life can be cruel, and how Thurston finished Origin is one of those moments. The fact that Johnathan Thurston has already played his final ever State Of O match with one more decider match still to go tonight, makes us feel pretty sad.
The man has given so much to Queensland over the years and so it was only fitting that someone made a heart-wrenching tribute to celebrate his 37-odd caps for the Maroons.
Thurston has already reportedly told the QLD locker room that they don't have to win it for him, but if you think for a second the Maroon boys aren't gonna run out onto Lang Park ready to rip it up, then you're wrong.
Those NSW boys won't know what's coming.
