Storm vs Cowboys 2018 Testimonial Game
Cameron Smith and Johnathon Thurston are two of the most successful NRL players in the league’s history, and as they enter the twilight of their respective careers, it is fitting that they be recognised in this testimonial game. The game has been dubbed ‘A Night with Cameron Smith and JT’, though the event will not be confined to the game itself; plenty of game-day entertainment and fan involvement activities will be on offer as well. The match will raise money for the NRL Cowboys House, Ovarian Cancer Australia and the Prostate Cancer Foundation, which were hand picked by Thurston and Smith.
Though this will be the first game of its kind to be played, the two teams have a decorated history, having matched up against one another in each of the past three finals series. In 2015, the two sides met in a preliminary final, which the Cowboys won 32-12 before winning the Grand Final the following week. The next season, they met in a qualifying final, and this time it was the Storm who ended up victorious. The most recent game between the Melbourne Storm and the Cowboys was the 2017 Grand Final, which saw the Storm win 34-6 to take out the third premiership in the club’s history.
