Gould not confident Johns will be
fit for Origin

New South Wales coach Phil Gould is hamming it up again over Andrew Johns, saying he is not confident the Captain will recover from a viral infection in time for Wednesday's final State of Origin match. But Gould says Johns will be given every chance to prove his fitness after joining his Blues team-mates in Brisbane today.

Johns has arrived at the Blues training session at Suncorp Stadium and Gould wants him to get a sweat up before determining Johns's fitness during his recovery. Bulldogs halfback Brent Sherwin is training in place of Johns for the Blues' final two sessions.
