    I think he did, but they don't and won't ever pick him. So he may see the light yet....

    Yep.. a chance to blame a failed season on injuries instead of their own shit coaching abilities. Congrats Steve.

    A better chance to blame failed seasons on an icon mistaken for a saviour . . . Steve has 7 rounds to make the team go better without Johnson

    PCL injury, not ACL.

    Will miss rest of the season because Warriors suck, but it's a 6-8 week injury not 6-8 months.

    If you guys could turn him into a Thurston level half you'll have my eternal gratitude, and the Cowboys shall be my 2nd team for eternity.

    Good news, Johnson has been ok this year considering some of the pelicans around him. His one on one defence has improved too.

    Kiwis and the world cup in general def need him.

    Shaun Johnson is the most exciting player in world rugby league -- and I include the stars of Super League in my judgment of him. Shaun Johnson is a magician who can help NZ win the World Cup.

    It all depends upon if the Warriors can make the playoffs without Shaun Johnson. If they can then he can return from injury, refreshed, in time for the preliminary finals and the Grand Final, and win it for the Warriors.

    So it all depends on whether super star Shaun Johnson's replacement Mafoa'aeata Hingano can do the business for the next 8 weeks, and help Roger Tuivasa-Sheck, Keiron Foran and Solomona Kata win the remaining regular season games for the Warriors.

    It's a 50/50 chance. Either they win the Grand Final, or they don't.

    You generally only say 'still' when someone was a chance of doing it previously.
