JT’S ORIGIN CAREER HIGHLIGHTS

Johnathan Thurston’s State of Origin tenure may be over thanks to his season-ending shoulder injury, but the memories he created in the Maroon jumper will last a lifetime.

Second on the all-time Origin appearances register with 37 – including a record 36 in a row before he was ruled out of this year’s series opener – JT’s Queensland legacy arguably elevates him above the likes of Langer and Lockyer, and alongside Lewis.

Kick back and marvel at Thurston’s astonishing highlights reel of accomplishments in the game’s toughest arena.
