HE was only around for three games but Andrew Johns made a lasting impression on Warrington Wolves and Super League.

The legendary Australian half-back joined The Wire for an audacious end-of-season spell in 2005, taking advantage of a signings loophole at the time by linking up with Paul Cullen's side after his Newcastle Knights season ended in the NRL.

Warrington was struck by Johns fever, a full house rocking The Halliwell Jones Stadium to the fore as the Kangaroos Test star steered The Wire to a convincing victory over a mighty Leeds Rhinos side and backed it up with another fine display in the final league game of the season against Hull FC at the KCOM Stadium.

The Black and Whites got their revenge seven days later, knocking Warrington out of the play-offs and reminding everyone that a week is a long time for turning form around in rugby league.

Bradford copied Wire's lead that year in making a last-gasp signing, fetching future Wire captain Adrian Morley back from the NRL on a short-term deal and Moz ended up adding a Super League winner's ring to his Premiership success in Australia.
