    Jonathan Thurston last game of his career almost definitely is at CBUS stadium Gold Coast and a idea has been thrown up to move it up to Townsville so he gets a final farewell. Terrible idea. It would set precedent doing something like this, and its also a thin swipe at the Titans suggesting "you don't get many fans going to your games so why should you care?"

    It would be tacky doing something like this, Titans are not out of the finals race yet and already lost a couple of home games from the Commonwealth games. I'm not sure they would be happy playing against a Cowboys team at home looking to put in a big effort for Jonathan Thurston's last one. Just plain stupid.

    You’re missing an ‘a’ aswell the unnecessary ‘h’ in Johnathan.

    Should move all remaining cowboy games to Townsville with Thurston getting a slice of the gate takings.

    Well, if they can make it make financial sense to the Titans then maybe they'll be happy move it. If not, Thurston fans will have to make the trip to Robina. to discharge their ejaculate.

    There has been nothing said officially by the cowboys about moving that game to Tvl. If the GC actually moved it, it would be purely to cash in on the crowd up there that it would draw. They shouldn’t move it imo. It’s probably too late as well.

    If both clubs want it, I see no reason why not.

    Just play your last game as per the draw and retire.

    Sick of the hubbub over this supposedly humble bloke

    The only thing I’ve heard about it is Parker blowing up. Was there actually a proposal put forward or is it just a hypothetical?

    I reckon the Cowboys would make the Titans a competitive offer

    They should move it to Townsville, swap out Titans with the Bulldogs, give Cowboys a 20 point headstart, and finally a wildcard entry into the finals.

    Split gate takings with Cam Smith

    It’ll be a competitive away game for JT

    Next Cam Smith will be wanting 24 home games and up to 4 finals matches played at AAMI

    No. But it won’t stop the usual suspects carrying on as if Thurston rang the GC and asked them to move it. Because, you know, that wouldn’t be worthy of its own f**king thread.....

    I don’t think anyone has seriously suggested moving the match

    Looking online there seems to be a fair amount of tickets already sold for the game at CBus

    I can’t see how they could move it so late in the piece

    Thurston went another year. The club offered him another year. The final game of his current contract states Titans away....the risk you take etc

    I’ve heard JT is getting dropped to Q Cup to make way for a triumphant Grant Rovelli comeback.

    Your sources are wrong bro. Watts is in for Granville. Shannon Gallant for Coote and Manase Manuokafoa for Taumalolo.
