Smith and Thurston ‘Testimonial’ jerseys revealed

Ahead of the highly-anticipated ‘A Night with Cam and JT’ testimonial match, both Cameron Smith and Johnathan Thurston have revealed unique jerseys to celebrate the occasion.

Smith’s predominantly white jersey features the colours of the teams he has played in throughout his illustrious career: Logan Brothers, Brisbane Norths, the Queensland Maroons, Australian Kangaroos as well as Storm.

Smith’s two chosen charities, the Prostate Cancer Foundation of Australia and Ovarian Cancer of Australia are both positioned on the jersey beneath the Melbourne Storm logo.

“These charities are an important part of this match. It’s a great chance to support both OCA and Prostate Cancer Foundation Australia, particularly as both have some significance to my family,” Smith said.

“It is an opportunity to create some more awareness for the three charities (Johnathan Thurston’s is Cowboys House) and raise much-needed funds.”

Thurston’s jersey was designed collaboratively by the Cowboys legend himself and his wife Samantha.

“Sam and I thought long and hard about the design, and the final product is something we are both really proud of,” Thurston said.

“I really wanted to capture all the incredible opportunities I’ve experienced throughout my career and pay tribute to the clubs and teams that I’ve had the privilege to represent.

“The testimonial match itself is a huge honour, and a chance to celebrate the achievements of my mate, Cam Smith – I hope everyone gets out to support the event,” Thurston said.

  1. Just my opinion, but Thurston’s jersey highlights a reason international rugby league is struggling. The Queensland colours take prominance over the Australian ones. Also, where are the bulldogs colours “pay tribute to the clubs and teams that I’ve had the privilege to represent”
