World News – UA – Joey’s incredible honor for Raiders superstar


The immortal Andrew Johns declared Jack Wighton as the top five-eighth in the NRL and one of the top three players in the game

The Wighton Raiders’ pistol emerges as key if Canberra is to upset the Roosters in tonight’s hit semi-final at SCG

The 27-year-old’s status in the game has grown steadily over the past few seasons, but Johns has provided perhaps the most emphatic endorsement yet

« He’s the best five-eighth in the competition, » Johns told Wide World of Sports’ Freddy and The Highth

« He really is a threat and right now he has a presence for him, a presence on the pitch that is just absolute superstar quality

« He has such an impact, his passing game is improved, but when he throws the ball – and he was in it all the other night (final win over Sharks), making some big tackles

« I think right now he’s one of the top three players in the game and in the photo finish, he’s just ahead of Cody Walker so far in five eighths »

NSW coach Brad Fittler, one of the best five-eighths of all time, also praised Wighton by comparing him to another great Raiders

« Laurie Daley they run a little different, Laurie just got this handsome – he could move with his body – while Jack is a little straighter

« But they have this ability, they beat you before they even got near you – they just knew they were going to beat you

« So they would only push you away before they think about the next player they were going to beat

« He was planning to fight you because you were already gone because he would just push you away
