Jonathan Thurston – Cowboys
No surprise here, but big players stand up in big games and I expect Thurston to do exactly that.
He has forced 29 dropouts this year and builds pressure better than any other individual in the competition. Against a Broncos defence that loves to slide, I think he will add to his 29 try assists on Friday night.
I think you’re almost guaranteed to see a short pass to Gavin Cooper for a line break or a try.
Sit back and marvel at the time he seems to have with ball in hand and the way he controls a game.
