Just a quickie; How good is Andrew Johns? Only nine games in two years and in one night he has crushed the hopes and dreams of Queenslanders everywhere. I like that.
I had heard ramblings on the local FM tripe radio this morning where he was compared with players like Wally Lewis and Allan Langer. Credit where credit is due, fine players in their own rights, but never in twenty-five years of watching sports have I seen one man lift a team to such an extent as last night. I have taken a poll of fanatics this morning and we all (four of us at this stage) agree that he is probably the best we’ll see in our life time.
So if you don’t really have an interest in the Origin Series or couldn’t make it to a TV last night; do yourself a favour and catch the decider (July 6th I think) so you can tell your grandchildren about it one day.
The only thing that pisses me off about Origin at the moment (other than Billy Slater and Carl Webb) is that once again the selectors have overlooked Raiders who are clearly good enough to get amongst it.
