In a year disrupted by a serious knee injury and suspension, Johns proved once again that he is the world's premier rugby league player.

A key figure in Australia's World Cup winning side, few players have his ability to take charge of a game.

He gave a dazzling man-of-the-match display in the NRL Grand Final to help Newcastle beat Parramatta.

Johns tackles and breaks the line like a forward, his passing, kicking and vision are world-class and his competitiveness is legendary.
