The article focuses on the rugby league football tournament Origin 1. In a worrying sign for North Queensland Cowboys just a week out from Origin Two, playmaker Johnathan Thurston admits he is suffering from a serious crisis of confidence. Cowboys coach Graham Murray admits his team has hit the wall in recent weeks, but in his role as Blues coach he probably wouldn't mind seeing Thurston struggle again. The Cowboys fought back well after a slow start against the Wests Tigers, recovering from 18-4 to trail 18-14 midway through the second half.
