Thurston injury update

Australian, Queensland and NQ Toyota Cowboys halfback Johnathan Thurston underwent scans today on an injured right ankle. This injury occurred last night in the Telstra Premiership Round 22 game against the Brisbane Broncos at Dairy Farmers Stadium.

The preliminary results are that Johnathan has a tear to the Medial Ligament in his right ankle. A specialist will be consulted early next week.

Johnathan is unlikely to play for the Cowboys for the rest of 2010, however the injury should not affect any representative duties that he may be selected for at the end of the season.
