North Queensland's NRL Premiership-winning hero Johnathan Thurston and former Sydney Roosters fullback Roger Tuivasa-Sheck have been short-listed for the prestigious Golden Boot Award.

Thurston, who kicked the golden point field goal that saw the Cowboys beat Brisbane in one of the most memorable grand finals in years, is aiming to become the first man to win the award three times having been crowned the world's best player in 2011 and 2013.

Kiwi fullback Tuivasa-Sheck, who will join up with the Warriors for the 2016 season had a sensational final season with the Roosters, who claimed a third successive minor premiership.
