Newcastle halfback Andrew Johns.

On this day, Andrew Johns shows his Immortal class, the Dogs get a lucky break and Ricky Stuart celebrates a milestone in style.


Semi Radradra was born in Fiji. A junior rugby player, he was recruited to the Eels in 2013 and scored 82 tries in 94 matches during five seasons at the club. He was controversially selected to represent Australia in 2016 after playing four Tests for his native Fiji. He left the NRL at the end of 2018 to take up a lucrative offer to play rugby in France.


Andrew Johns completes one of the most memorable fortnights of his career by landing a match-winning conversion from the sideline at EnergyAustralia Stadium to break a 30-30 deadlock in the clash between Newcastle and St George Illawarra.


Canterbury benefit from one of the most controversial calls of the season when second-rower Tony Williams is ruled to have legitimately regained possession after accidentally knocking the ball forward before sending fullback Will Hopoate away for a crucial try against St George Illawarra at ANZ Stadium.
