Australian, State of Origin and NRL legend Johnathan Thurston is set to finish his career with North Queensland after signing a one-year contract extension.

Thurston said he had no intention of finishing his playing days anywhere but Townsville with the Cowboys.

"It's a real joy to be able to say I'll be continuing on with the Cowboys in NRL season 2018. This club has given me so much over my 13 years here," Thurston said as the new deal was revealed on Friday night at the club's mid-year gala.
