How much can a Maroon bear?
News source: Sunshine Coast Daily, Saturday 10 June 2006
HOW much can the Queensland State of Origin rugby league side bear?
A fair bit. That was the word yesterday from the Maroons ace halfback Johnathan Thurston, who was at Australia Zoo with the state squad.
Thurston said that Queensland was no longer in awe of the big-name Blues.
He said he had been instructed to take more control of the Maroons' attack.
Thurston said Queensland would have better defence in Game Two at Lang Park on Wednesday.
