Johnathan Thurston Wins 4th RLPA Award


North Queensland Cowboy Johnathan Thurston has won his 4th Rugby League Player’s Association player medal.

“In my eyes this is the highest accolade a player can get, to be voted by your peers as the best in your game,” Thurston via video message.

“I am truly humbled and blown away to receive the RLPA players’ player medal for a record fourth time.

“Our game is littered with stars, we’ve got future Immortals playing, Smithy [Cameron Smith] GI [Inglis], we’ve got future Origin stars in Ben Hunt and James Tedesco, who have had outstanding seasons, [and] probably one of the best Kiwi fullbacks by the time he finishes his career in Roger Tuivasa-Sheck, who’s had an outstanding season.
