The man the myth the legend Brad Thorn has decided to come out of retirement at the age of 41.


With Rob Simmons missing the majority of the games for Queensland Country, due to international duties, Brad Thorn has decided to fill the gap himself. He undertook the role in Queensland as a player-coach and it seems he fully intends to get some solid game time under his belt. With 59 test caps for New Zealand, he’ll certainly bring experience and we can’t wait to see this man back in action!


He was interviewed in 2014 by Fox Sports where he stated

“I didn’t actually retire because of my body,”

“I retired because it seemed like I should — I turned 40. If you had of put the number 32 next to my name I would have signed another two-year contract.

“My body feels good. And I’ve had a few contacts from clubs about playing overseas, and I sort of say to them ‘that would be fun’ because I just love playing, but this is my focus now and it’s good to have the family back here, and it’s sort of the long-term plan and not popping around everywhere.”

Queensland line up against Canberra Vikings on the 27th of August so mark your calendars and get hyped.
