Johnathan Thurston speaks ahead of milestone 300th game

Johnathan Thurston will tonight etch his name further into the annals of Rugby League history, playing his 300th NRL game.

The Cowboys captain will become just the 30th player to reach the illustrious milestone when he runs out in front of a rapturous home crowd in Townsville to take on Cronulla.

The halfback debuted in 2002, has won two Premierships, four Dally M medals, played 37 matches for Queensland, 38 for Australia and is already tipped as a future immortal.

Despite what is a momentous day, Johnathan made time to talk with Alan.

He says, “it’s come around fairly quick”.

“To play 300 games is something I’m extremely proud of. That’s what I feel, immense pride.

“In the history of Rugby League, I become the 30th player to play 300 games, quite unique and very special.

“It’s insane, it’s been a wonderful journey.”
