- Channel Nine spokesperson told Daily Mail Australia that the reports were rubbish
NRL legend Andrew Johns and colleague Channel Nine commentator Erin Molan are said to have fallen into a feud so bitter that they can no longer work together.
Johns has denied the claims of the rumors, despite the fact that he has been missed in the commentary field next to Molan in recent months during the Friday night reporting.
& # 39; Where did you hear that? Good old rugby league just thrives on rumors and insinuations, & # 39; told the rugby league immortal Sunday Telegraph.

Andrew Johns described speculation of a rift with Molan as & # 39; rumors and insinuations & # 39;
Channel Nine promoted earlier this year that Johns would be an integral part of the network's Friday night league coverage during the 2019 season alongside host Molan.
But Johns suddenly disappeared from Friday night's mid-season without explanation and was replaced by retired NRL star Billy Slater.
The Sunday Telegraph claimed an argument between the couple as the reason for the inexplicable absence of Johns and that Channel Nine managed the bitter feud & # 39 ;.
Channel Nine & # 39; s sports director Tom Malone closed reports of a rumor breach and said it & # 39; no story & # 39; used to be.
Johns also disappeared from the Channel Nine screens last year after Molan hosted the NRL Footy Show, which was later canceled due to a collapsing rating
& # 39; There are many people on TV who get along and others who don't, & # 39; Mr. Malone added.
Daily Mail Australia contacted Ms. Molan for comment, who passed the survey on to the Channel Nine publicity department.
& # 39; Because this is a nonsense story, we will not comment & # 39 ;, said a spokesperson.
It is not the first time that Channel Nine has been startled by reports about a gap between the couple.
Johns also disappeared in the middle of the NRL Footy Show panel last year after Molan had replaced popular long time host Paul & # 39; Fatty & # 39; Vautin in shock axing.
The Logie-winning sports show was canceled at the end of last season after 25 years due to a collapsing rating.
First broadcast in 1994, the show won 11 Logies as Australia's most popular sports show.
