There is a clear conspiracy against North Queensland.
This has been evidenced, as noted by Johnathon Thurston, in the Shark's 7th Tackle win against the Cowboys.
North Queensland is continually discriminated against by Brisbane and the southern "rust bucket states".IT was a night of double celebration for Johnathan Thurston, although not everyone was happy about it.
The North Queensland captain last night was let off without a fine over his explosive comments following the Cowboys' controversial elimination final loss to Cronulla. And a few hours later he was crowned the best player in the game by his peers at the Rugby League Players Association awards.
Thurston had taken aim after the club's 20-18 loss on the back of a seventh-tackle try to the Sharks, claiming a bias towards Sydney clubs that was fuelled by Queensland's eight-year dominance of State of Origin football.
Cowboys coach Neil Henry, who made similar claims of a Sydney-centric conspiracy, was also cleared.
