The Premier has announced that NRL legend Johnathan Thurston will be honoured with a statute at the new Townsville Stadium.

Annastacia Palaszczuk delivered the surprise news during Question Time.

Ms Palaszczuk revealed that the bronze statue will be a feature of the new stadium, which is due to open in 2020.  

The Premier also said that the decision would not prevent Suncorp Stadium from building their own statue.  

Other NRL legends to be immortalised in bronze include 'The King' Wally Lewis, Arthur Beetson, Darren Lockyer and legendary former Maroons Coach Mal Meninga.
