Matt Johns hits brother Andrew with a SAVAGE sledge about his love life in hilarious Origin dig

Former NRL star turned Fox Sports personality Matthew Johns has made a savage joke that is likely to land him in the doghouse with his brother Andrew, Blues coach Brad Fittler and his own wife Trish.

It started as an innocuous segment on SEN Breakfast where the panel was chatting about State of Origin on Monday morning.

New South Wales has developed a reputation for picking and flicking players in recent years, unfairly jettisoning talent when they make a single mistake or before they even have a chance to settle into their jersey.
