Barrett out of Origin - Johns in

New South Wales half back Trent Barrett has been ruled out of State of Origin II after suffering a thigh injury during a training session in Dubbo today. He will be replaced by Knights half back Andrew Johns.

Reports suggest the Dragons' five-eighth and skipper has been sidelined with a torn quad.

Johns, who recently returned from injury himself, will partner Bulldogs' five-eighth Braith Anasta in the halves when NSW take on Queensland next Wednesday night.
