Build an Andrew Johns Statue in Newcastle

Andrew Johns is the halfback of the century, the eighth immortal, and the best rugby league player I've ever seen.

The have built a statue of Wally Lewis in Brisbane, they're going to build one for Jonathon Thurston, other sports have commemorated their greats, so the greatest of all time deserves a statue of his own.

Yes, he has a stand named after him, but I want a big bronze statue that I can get a photo with.

Andrew Johns should have a statue built of him in Newcastle, out front of McDonald Jones Stadium, as a permanent reminder of everything he did for this town and region, and a constant reminder that the greatest there ever was is one of ours.

Let's make this happen!

***UPDATE*** 19 October 2019

We are starting to get to a bit of the crunch point in our project.

Myself and businessman, Andrew Hughes, are working with Venues NSW, the regulatory body that oversees McDonald Jones Stadium, to get the statue built.

Myself and Andrew will soon begin depositing the funds raised through GoFundMe into our bank account so that we can start preparations. In each instance, money will be issued either via electronic transfer or cash, and receipted accordingly.

EVERY payment will be recorded.

Let's #BuildTheStatue.
