Description

Sportswear company Canterbury Internationalis "celebrating its long-term partnership with the Maroons with a JT QLD farewell jersey landing in stores soon."

Says a spokesman, Canterbury will no longer partner the Maroons after this season.

North Queensland Cowboys star Johnathan Thurston has played a record number of State of Origin matches for Queensland but injury threatens what was to be his farewell representative match in Origin Three decider next month.

The jersey is due to arrive in stores around Game Three, and pre-order has just gone live. It  features flags on each shoulder - the indigenous flag and the Queensland flag, along with playing number and the years he represented Queensland on the back.

Plus the jersey will feature pencil sketches of JT's playing style and an interpretation of his back tattoo featuring angel wings.

Thurston also wears the Madison Sport headguard, having been signed by the Brisbane brand when he was a promising youngster of 16.
