The Cowboys have confirmed that Johnathan Thurston will play on beyond this year, with JT inking on for an extension with the club.
This will see JT to the end of the 2018 season.
After a bit of a rough trot with injury this year and talk of retiring from rep duties, there was a bit of doubt concerning how long JT would continue to play for.
Rest assured, Cowboys fans (and rugby league fans everywhere) - we'll get to see another year of JT magic.
“It’s a real joy to be able to say I’ll be continuing on with the Cowboys in NRL season 2018,” Thurston said in the Cowboys' statement.
“This club has given me so much over my 13 years here. I’ve played alongside some great talents, worked with amazing people and shared in phenomenal successes.
“It’s been a real privilege to be associated with the North Queensland Cowboys and now that the deal is done, I can concentrate on my footy and helping my teammates on and off the field.”
