Cameron Smith has paid tribute to Johnathan Thurston and his Origin retirement, inviting JT up on stage to hoist the Origin shield following QLD's series win.
In a classy move, Smith also gave a short speech thanking JT for his service to the jersey. Watch the video below.
"We've had our own presentations and discussions around Johnathan's his last game which was game two," Smith said.
"It was unfortunate that he couldn't finish tonight in front of his beloved Queensland fans.
"I don't think I've come across a more passionate Queenslander, and mate for what you've done in this jersey, I don't think anyone could ever thank you enough mate.
"I reckon you're the greatest person or player that's ever pulled on the Maroon jersey."
