Put the corks back into your champagne bottles, Blues fans. You might not have seen the last of Johnathan Thurston just yet.
According to Triple M, Thurston has admitted during an appearance on The Footy Show, that he’d be open to making an Origin comeback in 2018, if asked.
“If I got the call from the coach, I’d probably consider it,” Thurston said.
Thurston wouldn’t be the first Origin legend to answer the call; Blues legend Andrew Johns did it in 2005, and most famously, Allan Langer came back from England to win the series in 2001.
It’s enough to make you hope they lose a game, just to see Thurston in maroon one more time.
