Cowboys forward pack and all round work horse Patrick Kaufusi has taken to Instagram letting us know that his foot injury will see him sidelined for the rest of the season.
The Cowboy had come off the bench to represent Tonga in last weekends rep rounds, where he received structural damage to his foot.
After undergoing surgery he took to Instagram saying
''Will be supporting the boys from the side, 100% know we have the squad to go all the way.
''Surgery went well, and I am on the mend! I know everything happens for a reason, and trust that this is part of God's plan.''
This comes after captain JT has also been ruled out of tonight’s game following a shoulder injury playing in the Anzac Test for Australia.
Selectors have their fingers crossed that Thurston will be back to full health for Origin.
The Boys will take on the Doggies at 7:50 tonight (11th of May) at ANZ Stadium.
