Haha nice bump. Thanks for reminding us of the JT cheating claims. How much was he fined again?
How Thurston didn't get suspended or receive $50,000 dollar fine over those disgraceful is just pathetic. Questioning the integrity of Rugby League and they think that's ok. QLD took whinging to a level that will never be reached that day.
Good to see the sharks supporters on the forum have suddenly changed their tune in regards to refereeing decisions
just need to have it happen a few years in a row to get a full understanding
Let us know when that happens to the cowboys then
Still crying I see.
How much was JT fined?
Have you managed to go to work this week? Or have you had to take the day off to cry more?
Like most New South Welshmen I have a job. You blokes should try it sometime
Thurston claimed after the match that New South Wales' lack of State of Origin success was filtering through to retribution in NRL games, with the Cowboys on the receiving end of poor refereeing decisions in two consecutive years of finals.
"You can see it, I'm not the only one that can see it, it's there for everyone to see," Thurston told reporters.
"While Queensland dominate at State of Origin level, New South Wales is crying out for something and they seem to be getting it.
I have spoken with both Johnathan and Cowboys CEO Peter Jourdain, who have each given an assurance that the comments were not directed at the administration or the officials.

"It's what the media wants, and fans in New South Wales want - South Sydney and Roosters grand final.
"If you're playing for a team outside of Sydney you're fighting up against it, no doubt about it."
But the NRL's head of football Todd Greenberg says no action will be taken against Thurston for his remarks.
"There is a distinct difference between the comments themselves and some of the interpretations placed on of those comments," Greenberg said in a statement.
"At no stage was there a reference to the integrity of the officials.
"I have spoken with both Johnathan and Cowboys CEO Peter Jourdain, who have each given an assurance that the comments were not directed at the administration or the officials.
"We have also fully reviewed the comments by Neil Henry and do not believe that they contravened the policy.
"The policy allows for coaches to express their disappointment at decisions and we respect that right.
"What does cause an issue is when a coach or player questions the integrity of an official or engages in ridicule or excessive criticism."
Referees Cechin and Perenara were both dropped for the second week of NRL finals.
Let's hope Todd sticks to his word
Does 'work for the dole' really count?
Hopefully Todd can tell us soon
Double standards in thr NRL ?
Is everyone whinging about the decisions or the fines now
Hard to keep up
The fines will just be another example of the consistency
So in your view it's a conspiracy?
the fines will come from the grassy knoll?
No it's Greenberg gauging the mood of social media rather than applying the rules.
