Thurston donates match-worn Origin jersey to flood relief

North Queensland Toyota Cowboys legend Johnathan Thurston is lending his hand to the North Queensland flood crisis, donating one of his signed, match-worn Origin jerseys to be auctioned.

Talking on hit105’s 'Stav, Abby and Matt' this morning, Thurston spoke highly about how the Townsville community has come together to help each other over the past week.  

“They are a very resilient bunch up here in North Queensland,” Thurston said.

“They certainly get behind each other when we are doing it tough.

“We have definitely seen it in spades this week.”

JT, who is expecting his fourth child in just three weeks, said that he was thankful wife Sam didn’t go into labour over the weekend.

“That would have been panic stations,” the four-time Dally M Medallist said.

Fans will be able to bid for Thurston’s game-worn jersey on hit105’s website in the coming days.
