Thurston to back-up after Origin

Johnathan Thurston has declared only an injury would stop him backing up for the Cowboys during the State of Origin series.

North Queensland play the Roosters three days after the first Origin game in Brisbane, the Warriors three days after Game Two in Sydney and the Newcastle Knights five days after the Origin finale in Brisbane.

If Thurston has his way, he’ll be there for all three, even though he admitted he is still very sore after his 160 minutes of football at the weekend.
