Cowboys Legend Johnathan Thurston Considering NRL Return

Cowboys Legend Johnathan Thurston Considering NRL Return

Johnathan Thurston is on the brink of a sensational return to the NRL.

The North Queensland Cowboys legend admits he's having some serious thoughts about potentially coming back and helping his beloved club following the sudden departure of 2015 Premiership-winning head coach Paul Green.

With the team currently sitting in 12th place on the NRL ladder, it's understood JT is open to stepping into on a role at the club which could see him pull on the famous navy, white and gold jersey once again.

"I've started thinking about that a lot more lately, given the position the club has been in," Thurston told Nine's Wide World of Sport.

"The stuff that I've been involved with in the club has been totally off-field.

"I wanted to develop myself in going to different types of meetings with our CEO and chairman to get that experience in the boardroom which I have missed playing rugby league.

"It's all been about my personal development, but seeing the state the club is in now, it's probably time in the next year or so to have a look at that.

"I'm emotionally attached to the club, I love the club and to be able to help nurture those young blokes coming through that we've seen, hopefully we can see the club back at its best in the next few years."

Thurston hung the boots back in 2018 after successfully co-captaining the Cowboys to their inaugural NRL Premiership in 2015.

But with the NRL looking to relocate to Queensland - combined with the news of a change in coaching staff - now could be the perfect opportunity for Thurston's second coming.

Cowboys fans would undoubtedly welcome it with open arms.
