JT. One of the greats, simply the best. He is Johnathan Thurston.

As a young Brisbane kid, Johnathan Thurston was written off as too skinny, too slow and too wild to play rugby league professionally. But he defied the odds to become one of the game's greatest players.

In this young readers' edition of his bestselling autobiography, follow his journey from his debut with the Canterbury Bulldogs in 2002, to State of Origin star, and to total legend of the game.
