    Certainly true. Thurston didn’t figure much in the 2004 Grand Final...come to think of it, he didn’t do much in 2015, either. It was a very flat performance from him on the night, I thought Milford played all over him.

    The CCM was laughable. He wasn’t in the top 5 players on the field that night. To be fair, Johns didn’t deserve the medal in 2001 either, but he certainly played a great game in both Grand Finals. Thurston was great in neither of his.

    You mean an international tournament that generally only has one outcome that no one really cares about?

    Sorry, you’re new. That’s what happens to new members. You get berated as an alt straight up.

    Sorry again, I’ve ignored every person that claims I’m an alt. It’s working because I’m not a an alt at all.

    surely you jest? The bloke was always in the top 5 most missed tackles. A human turnstyle for quite literally an area that makes up 50% of the game......Defence . Thurston had the benifit of playing alongside some great players. Joey made others great players. Huge difference. I know who I'd choose if I had to select one of them to play for my life.......A Johns everyday of the week and twice on Sundays.

    We can Albert “Adam” Stephenson,

    Joey was a much better defender but Thurston was a lot more fit then barge ass. Thurston was always competitive though. His an ordinary human

    Thurston was better at cover tackles...but it’s a bit of a back-handed compliment. A lot easier to take blokes down when they’re running away from you than front-on.
