Warriors halfback Shaun Johnson is usually the one dishing out autographs and selfies to adoring fans but it was the Kiwis international who was star struck when he met Home & Away star Ray Meagher today.

Johnson went into fan-boy mode when he met the Australian actor, who plays gruff but lovable Alf Stewart on the long-running sitcom, while in the Radio Sport studio during the Crowd Goes Wild Breakfast show this morning.

Johnson had just completed an on-air interview with hosts Andrew Mulligan and Nathan Rarere when Meagher arrived to chat about his role as Bob 'the mechanic' in the Auckland production of Priscilla Queen of the Desert.

The pair enjoyed a quick chat and shared a laugh with Meagher obliging Johnson's request for a quick selfie video in which he recited Alf's famous and well-worn line "stone the flamin' crows".

"I've seen him play many times and he is absolutely phenomenal," said Meagher.

"I mean, how do you tackle that? He just keeps moving in different directions and very quickly."
