The footy brothers have had little contact following a heated on-air debate ahead of the State of Origin series opener; now Andrew says that he will have lunch with Matt.
“Just because you’ve played four games and lost all four doesn’t mean you need NSW.”
Now Andrew has revealed that the couple will be smoking the peace pipe and they plan to have lunch together.
Appearing on 2GB, Andrew told presenter Ben Fordham that the pair were going to work on their relationship, but they won’t be taking over Brad Fittler’s job as Blues coach any time soon.
“That won’t happen,” Johns said.
But we are going to have lunch in the next few days.
“I called him and told him I’d talk to you after Origin.”
Matthew has said on his podcast, along with his sons Cooper and Jack, that Andrew was ready to strike the next time their paths crossed.
“I just heard through the grapevine that he basically told people the next time he sees me, he’s going to chop my head off,” Matthew said.

‘Well, I just hope he’s learned how to fight unlike last time we had a little refresher. No, I haven’t heard from him.
While Andrew hasn’t been speaking to Matthew, he remains in contact with his brother’s NRL-playing sons Cooper and Jack.
“I talk to him,” Jack said on the podcast.
He and I are pretty close.
Matty replied, ‘So you’re switching to the other side, huh, Judas?
‘Well, why don’t you all join in and kick me, like your fucking uncle, okay?
Do you think if NSW wins Origin, Joey will call me and bury the hatchet?
Or do you think this grudge will keep him forever? Because I hope it takes forever.
