This Rugby Player And His Daughter Just Won The Grand Final Of Cuteness

Cutest grand final ever.

Posted on

Johnathan Thurston has done a lot in his career: representing Australia 32 times, winning multiple State of Origin series, four Dally M medals and two Golden Boot awards for the best player in the world. But this photo may be the best thing he's done.

It was quite a night for the Cowboys co-captain on Sunday as he attempted to lead his team to its first ever NRL Premiership. For one of the game's greatest ever players, a victory would have sealed his status as one of the game's immortals.

So for the first time ever the grand final went into Golden Point extra time. And again, it was up to Thurston to kick a field goal to seal victory. He didn't miss this time and people were pretty excited.



Thurston is cuddling with his daughter Frankie. An earlier version of this post incorrectly identified her as his other daughter, Charlie. Both Frankie and Charlie are still very, very cute.
