Eighth Immortal Andrew Johns has chosen his all-time NSW team to celebrate home state’s 40th birthday, with James Tedesco the only current player to make the team

Tedesco, with 10 Origin appearances to his name, narrowly beat Anthony Minichiello (11 Origins) and Tim Brasher (21 Origins) for the fullback position

The Roosters champion lines up in a star cast that also includes Brad Fittler, Laurie Daley, Glenn Lazarus and Paul Harragon

Johns picked Jarryd Hayne to play on a wing after being the closest thing to a thorn on the Queensland Dynasty side, winning several man of the match awards on a flank at a time when the Blues whipped the boys

Speaking about Hayne’s role on this New South Wales squad, Johns was impressed with his ability to clearly stand out on pitch that also included Queensland legends Cameron Smith, Johnathan Thurston, Billy Slater and Greg Inglis

« Jarryd Hayne played in a time when Queensland were so dominant and he is still the best player on the pitch, in both teams, » Johns said

« Some of the things he did in those shows were just amazing and when they won the show it was on his back, the only time in 12 seasons Amazing player « 

Hayne played wing, center and back during a 23-game Origin career that began in 2007 and ended in 2017 The only streak he won was in 2014, when he played in the Non1 jersey

Johns said one of his toughest decisions in team selection was how to get two undisputed champions Brad Fittler and Laurie Daley in together

Both played some of their football at center and lock, but were known primarily as five-eighths Both also inspired during their time as captain on the NSW side

Johns called on Daley to take the No6 jersey to his side due to his choice of half-back, Ricky Stuart wearing the No7

« Growing up, that was the time in the early 1990s when they had three consecutive wins (1992-1994), it was on the backs of these players, » Johns said

« The Raiders were on fire at the time, they were unbeatable, and just that combination, Ricky’s long death and Laurie’s run »

Johns chose the intimidating frontline couple Paul Harragon and Glenn Lazarus, describing Lazarus as « the best lead rower I’ve ever seen »

« Very early on I got to play the whore between these two and Lazo taught me a lot about ruck defense, not only was he a great player but he was incredibly smart, » said Johns

Paul Gallen was the other recent player to get the nod from Johns, the man Queensland loved to hate during the dynasty era winning a seat on the bench alongside Craig Wing , Steve Roach and Steve Menzies

“I couldn’t pick him in the front row ahead of Chief (Paul Harragon) and also Lazo,” said Johns “He played in that time of total domination of Queensland, but I thought his leadership at that time and also the way he stood up to the Queenslanders, that’s what we are in NSW »

Johns chose Phil Gould as his pick for NSW’s top coach in Origin’s 40 years

« He taught me so much about football, he taught me so much about the mindset before the big games and he was the perfect coach during that six week period to put everyone in tune and that everyone is traveling in the same direction « Johns told me
