- Matthew Johns has made a heartbreaking confession about brother Andrew
- The brothers disagree after falling out over country of origin
- Matthew said he’ll “maybe see him at Christmas” as they’re still not on speaking terms
There is no sign of the bitter feud between Andrew and Matthew Johns being resolved as the two are still not on speaking terms.
Earlier this year, a heated argument erupted between the brothers on SEN radio after former New South Wales star Matty praised Queensland manager Billy Slater.
Andrew, a die-hard bluesman who is closely associated with the team’s coach Brad Fittler, was outraged by his brother’s public praise of the Maroons, leading to an explosive argument.
Many fans and pundits were expecting the dispute to be settled, but the two are still at odds, despite efforts by SEN boss Craig Hutchison to smooth over the siblings’ disputes.
Andrew has since left his Friday morning radio show and is not expected to return.

Andrew “blew up” his older brother over his praise of Queensland before Origin.
Matthew has since revealed he has not spoken to his brother since the row erupted in May, before expressing doubts about whether they will put things right before the end of the year.
“He wasn’t seen at Nobby’s,” Matthew told Sport Confidential via news.com.au.
“Catch plans have been put on hold.” “Maybe we’ll see him for Christmas… maybe.”
Matthew recently revealed he had tried fixes things with his younger brother and rended when Andrew turned 49but received no reply.
Although Andrew hasn’t spoken to Matthew, he keeps in touch with his siblings’ sons, Jack and Cooper.
“I’m talking to him,” Knights backrower Jack said on a recent podcast. “Me and he are pretty close.”

Matthew replied, “So you’re going to the other side, aren’t you, Judas?”
“Well why don’t you all just join in and kick me like your bloody uncle did, okay?”
“Do you think Joey will call me and bury the hatchet? Or do you think he’ll carry that grudge on forever? Because I hope he carries it on forever.’
