"There's a lot of great women out there that have done a lot of amazing things involved in the game," Thurston told Wide World of Sports' JT's Toast and Roast. "I just want to send out my best wishes to everyone who has been apart of the game and helped the game evolve.

"Myself personally, my mum has made a lot of sacrifices to help get to where I am today.

"I remember as an 11-year-old, her taking time off work to drive me up to the sunshine coast from Brisbane to stay at a caravan park to play in a carnival up there.

"I remember we stayed in bunk beds. I was in the top bunk and almost fell out on my first night. That's just one of the great memories I have spending time with my mum and the sacrifices she's made."
