Bosses at North Queensland have postponed a meeting with star halfback Johnathan Thurston over an incident that led to his arrest by police.
Cowboys board members were due to meet with the Queensland and Australia superstar tommorrow, but have delayed the meeting to allow Thurston to prepare a response.
Thurston, 27, was arrested by police in Brisbane for alledged “public nuisance” offences last week and will face court on October 6.
Club chairman, Laurence Lancini, said: “As we said at the time, the Board and management of the club are disappointed with Johnathan’s actions and he will be required to explain the circumstances surrounding the incident.”
“The Cowboys maintain strict player behaviour protocols and are committed to ensuring that players understand their commitment to members, sponsors and the community.
“We will set a new date for the Board meeting to discuss Johnathan’s actions as soon as possible.”
