Thurston's new Cowboys role revealed


//

NRL legend Johnathan Thurston has been handed a new role with the North Queensland Cowboys after ending his playing career at the end of last season.

Thurston has been appointed as an official Cowboys ambassador and will be working with the commercial and community teams to build relationships and foster connections with industry partners.

The 294-game legend who was a part of the club's maiden NRL premiership said he was excited to remain a member of the Cowboys community.

"I love the club and this community and always wanted to continue to be involved in making this an even greater place to live, work and raise a family," Thurston said in a statement.

"I'm enjoying life and having the time to think about where I can make a difference, and where I want to be.

"Coming back home to the Cowboys feels like a natural fit for me and the chance to work off-field with their highly-regarded team of professionals is a fantastic opportunity for me."

Cowboys CEO Jeff Reibel said that the club was thrilled to have Thurston involved with the club in his post-football career.

It was always our ambition to have Johnathan continue in an off-field role with us in his rugby league retirement," Reibel said in a statement.

"There's no question that very few individuals hold the influence and reputation that JT does, and his commercial acumen will be a great asset to our team.

"We're looking forward to having JT's competitive edge and insights with us on the other side of the club."
