North Queensland Cowboys v Sydney Roosters
Round 12, 2011
Dairy Farmers Stadium

It was the death of former team-mate Sam Faust that inspired the Cowboys to a memorable 20-6 victory against the Roosters in Round 12 last season.

Faust died of leukaemia days before the clash and players wore jerseys with his name embroidered on the left breast. Halfback Thurston was the star performer, scoring a try, laying on another and kicking four goals on the way to collecting three Dally M points.
