Watch Bernard Fanning Dedicate His Origin Performance Of ‘Wish You Well’ To Johnathan Thurston

Written by Emmy Mack on July 12, 2017

In a touching bit of pre-Origin spectacle, Powderfinger legend Bernard Fanning has dedicated a performance of his hit ‘Wish You Well’ to series retiree Johnathan Thurston.

The Cowboys five-eighth was on the scene despite getting ruled out of tonight’s decider with a season-ending shoulder injury, after announcing that this year would be the last time we saw him don a Maroons jersey.

And, following an emotional tribute to JT, Fanning came out to the middle of the stage (in a maroon suit-jacket no less) to serenade the league legend with his uplifting tune ‘Wish You Well’.

Catch footage of Fanning’s performance and Origin’s bloody emotional tribute to Thursto, below.
