Johnson: “It’s all a bit of a blur”

Shaun Johnson claims he can’t quite picture his match-winning try against England at Wembley but describes it as the biggest moment of his career.

With just seconds to spare, the 23-year-old received the ball in space and cleverly stepped a charging Kevin Sinfield before crossing to level the scores then calmly slotting the conversion to send his side into the World Cup final.

“It was a bit of a blur, to be honest,” the halfback said.

“The whole match, we’d been hitting the right edge and I looked up and saw a bit of space on the left and just went to that side.

“I got a pass, saw someone come at me, was able to beat him and just scored.

“It was probably handy I scored nearer to the posts. In the circumstances, it was a tough kick.”
