Mortimer keen to learn from 'JT' mentor

Titans halfback Daniel Mortimer has been grilling coach Neil Henry on key facets of the game of his favourite player Johnathan Thurston to make the most of what he says is his best career opportunity.

"[Neil] has coached probably my favourite player in the game in Johnathan Thurston so if I can learn a bit off Neil and he can give me a few tips on how to play my position well it's only going to help me. You've seen the way Johnathan plays, he's quite a freak," Mortimer said.
