Johns favourite to be next Immortal
by NRL

Online bookmaker has installed Newcastle great Andrew Johns as the $2 favourite to be the next man inducted into rugby league's most select club, that of the Immortals.

For the first time in nine years Rugby League Week will increase the membership of the Immortals, with tipping that Johns will join league legends Clive Churchill, Reg Gasnier, John Raper, Bob Fulton, Wally Lewis, Graeme Langlands and Arthur Beetson in the exclusive set.

"Johns ($2), Mal Meninga ($2.50), Norm Provan ($7) and Ron Coote ($10) are shaping as the leading contenders, with the odds favouring Joey and Big Mal because of the groundswell of opinion that the judges will want to recognise someone from the most recent 20 years of rugby league.

"Another factor that makes Johns the favourite is that it's probably about time that one of the Immortals was a halfback given that number seven is, arguably, rugby league's key position."
