Thurston could make union switch

Johnathan Thurston has sent shockwaves through Australia by admitting that he could “easily” see himself playing rugby union.

The North Queensland halfback, who is off contract as of next season, has also revealed that he does not feel a deep-seated allegiance to the code.

“I could easily see myself being a Wallaby,” Thurston told The Courier Mail.

“I could easily play rugby, I watch the Wallabies a fair bit and I could certainly see myself playing the game,” Thurston said.

“I have to think about what’s best for me, and if playing rugby is what’s best for me, I’ll take that option up.”

“I could easily go if I think it’s the right option. It’s just a matter of doing what is best for me and my family.”

Thurston’s manager Sam Ayoub has reportedly recieved a deal worth $1.1million for Thurston to play union in Japan.

A new Super 15 team based in Melbourne is also reported to be chasing the former Canterbury Bulldogs player.
