Australia - NSW
Newcastle Knights, NSW and Australian rugby league captain Andrew Johns has twice been named the BEST RUGBY PLAYER IN THE WORLD - the only player to have achieved this glowing double.
The 'best in the world' rankings from Rugby League World magazine reaffirmed the status Johns enjoys in the NRL competition. For the past four seasons John has been voted the best player in the game in a Rugby League Week survey involving 100 players. No other player has been voted in No. 1 position as many times since polling commenced in 1986.

Awarded a Centenary Medal by the Australian Government in 2003 for his services to rugby league and as a role model for youth, Johns has won every major award the game offers: Golden Boot (1999/2001), Dally M (1998-1999), Proven-Summons People's Choice (1998/1999/2000/2001), Most Valuable Player in 1995 World Cup, Player of the Series Australia v Great Britain 2001, Clive Churchill Medal (2001) and Rugby League Week Player of the Year (1998-1999).

Since making his debut for Australia in 1995, the durable Knights No. 7 has played halfback and hooker for Australia with great distinction.

Johns has played 18 Tests for Australia, made 21 State of Origin appearances for NSW and is the highest points scorer in the Knights history with more than 1,800 points from more than 200 first-grade matches.
