Why Cowboys Fans Have A Case Of Dejavu

A mid-season Cowboys signing has got fans feeling like we've rewound the clock 12 years to 2005.

Fresh face to the Cowboys camp Te Maire Martin has recently signed with the club and it's got us feeling like we've seen this before...

  • Martin has left his Sydney Club, Penrith Panthers to join the Cowboys
    Thurston left his Sydney Club, Canterbury Bulldogs to join the Cowboys
  • Martin is becoming a Cowboy at 21 years of age
    JT became a Cowboy at 22 years of age (close enough!)
  • Martin has almost an identical physique to that of JT's, both tipping the scales at 87kg (that's Johnathon Thurston, not bulldozer Jason Taumalolo)

We think this NZ five-eighth couldn't be anymore similar to our King of the North. Will he one day earn the same title? 

For now we'll embrace the new kid on the block as he gets set to debut with the boys in Blue & Grey against the Raiders this weekend in Canberra.
