Not sure if this has been posted already. Thurston has revealed that he will retire from Rugby League at the end of 2018, but he will retire from rep footy at the end of 2017 after the World Cup. He said he will be the first player in the spine to retire, which indicates that Smith and Cronk will continue to play on in 2018. But he did also say that after the first game he started to have second thoughts about retiring at the end of 2017. Who do you think should replace him? And do you think we should blood a couple of players next year to prepare for his retirement?
