League legend Andrew Johns has taken up a coaching position with the Parramatta Eels ahead of the 2020 season.

The appointment of Andrew Johns joining Parramatta was confirmed Wednesday morning on via the club's website.

Johns has already started working with the squad during their preseason as he will work as the halves and spine coach.

He will mentor the likes of Dylan Brown, Mitch Moses, Clint Gutherson and Reed Mahoney.

The former Australian and NSW No.7 will work weekly with the Eels throughout the 2020 season.

Johns's addition is crucial as the Eels look to finish higher than fifth in 2020.


  1. Parra to win the 2020 comp now! Time to get excited Kev & pay off the layby on that shiny new “BeefEater BBQ” since the last one disintegrated from rust from its last use in 2009.

  2. I think that’s another reason why D Brown resign too cause of Johns.
    Hearing Brock lamb will be signed by end of the week as well

  3. Lambs no “chop”, good reserve grader though.

    As for Johns being in a Parra coaching role of some sort. Just remember he will expose all game day tactics to the Newcastle coaching staff when Parra play them in rnd 24, and within two to three seasons Newcastle will have four or five Parra players.

    Thats how he works, he is a double cross Newcastle agent spy. Hahahaa, dont say I did not warn you guys, I know, he did it at his last mission impossible assignment at the Roosters, before they gave him the big boot.

  4. This is great news for our young spine. Should continue to see development from Brown, and importantly improved game management from Moses. Whilst he had a good 2019, he still lacks the ability to dig us out of a hole, hopefully Joey can provide some assistance in this area.
