Johnathan Thurston Farewell to a Legend Headgear Display
NRL Immortality awaits Johnathan Thurston after a historical Rugby League career - 13 of those years shared with his beloved North Queensland Cowboys. It was no coincidence that JT's arrival at the Cowboys in 2005 culminated in a Grand Final appearance for the club - combining that with his first Dally M Medal in the same year, the Cowboys and their fans had a taste of what JT would ultimately deliver them in the thirteen years to follow. Individual awards are plentiful on JT's mantlepiece - four Dally M Medals (a feat no-one had managed before him), three Golden Boot Awards and four RLPA player of the year awards - just to name a few. One achievement, however, would stand above all - securing his team's first NRL premiership with a clutch goal just two minutes extra time - setting off unbridled jubilation. Thurston hailed North Queensland's maiden NRL premiership as the crowning achievement of his career, cementing one of the most complete records in rugby league history and securing his standing as the greatest player in Cowboy's history.
Champions, in conjunction with the North Queensland Cowboys and National Rugby League, are proud to release "Farewell to the Legend". This stunning piece pays the ultimate respect to Cowboys games record holder Johnathan Thurston's illustrious career with North Queensland. "Farewell to the Legend' comes personally signed by Johnathan Thurston and includes a replica of JT's official Madison Cowboys Coolmax headgear. It is officially licensed by the NRL and RLPA. Each display is presented in a deluxe black frame and encased in a custom crafted Perspex case, which will best enhance the three-dimensional nature of the headgear. The display measures an impressive 550mm wide x 850mm tall. The edition is strictly limited to just 50 displays only. This is a must have for all Cowboys fans and astute collectors alike. Don't miss out - secure your tribute to one of the game's greatest ever players before they sell out!
