174 days from now

Presented by Major Events

Major Events proudly presents a unique opportunity to share an evening with rugby league royalty and likely future Immortal Johnathan Thurston.

There are very few sportsmen who dominate at every level of their chosen sport; Johnathan Thurston is one of these rare commodities. From humble beginnings, JT as he is affectionately known, rose through the ranks to become arguably the most influential player in rugby league’s 108 year history.

Thurston has excelled across every level, winning club premierships with the Canterbury-Bankstown Bulldogs and North Queensland Cowboys, inspiring Queensland Maroons to more than a decade of Origin dominance and proudly representing his country as an Australian Kangaroo.

Along the way Thurston collected every award available. Dally M Player of the year a record 4 times, halfback of the year, several Golden Boots for the World’s Best Player and numerous International position awards, Clive Churchill and Wally Lewis Medals and many more. Thurston was also a finalist for the 2018 Australian of the Year.

Johnathan is a proud Indigenous and community leader, loving father and husband, who is universally respected both on and off the field. With his career coming to a conclusion this will be a unique opportunity to hear from Johnathan as he reflects on an illustrious life on and off the field.

“I am excited to provide an insight into my childhood, culture and career in an intimate setting on stage at The Star Gold Coast” said Thurston.
