100 up for Owen Farrell – AND JACK!

Joining Jack’s Jack Johnson had a Saturday he’ll never forget as the guest of honour for England Superstar Owen Farrell’s 100th cap at Twickenham.

Owen asked Jack to join him for the singing of the anthems ahead of the match against the All Blacks.

And Jack’s younger brother James got the call up too!

Owen has backed the Johnson family ever since Jack was diagnosed with Duchenne muscular dystrophy – and locks his fingers in the iconic JJ Salute whenever he slots a penalty.

And things only got better for the Johnson boys as they witnessed England stage an incredible comeback in the last ten minutes to draw with New Zealand.

They were there in the tunnel as Owen came off after the final whistle – giving the Joining Jack and Duchenne UK Ambassador the high five to thank him for the best day out ever.
