Australian and Newcastle captain Andrew Johns will miss the remainder of the National Rugby League season and the Kangaroo tour because of a bulging disc in his neck.
Johns, who missed last year's finals, with a back injury, injured his neck against last weekend during the Knights 60-24 humiliation of the North Queensland Cowboys. Newcastle secured 8th position on the ladder following that victory.
