Everyone’s A Leader In This Side: Johnston

Landing the Rabbitohs top try-scoring tally for the third year in a row, winger Alex Johnston will enter the 2017 season one four-pointer shy of the 50 try milestone.

Johnston says that he had several highlights throughout the season but there were two particular moments that stood out to him the most.

“I probably had a couple,” said Johnston.

“One was putting on the Indigenous Jersey, I thought it was pretty cool the whole process of putting our handprints on and having our tribe on there. It was very special for me to wear that jersey.

“Another big game for me was 50 games this year. I had a few coaches say that you’re not really a first grader until you play 50 so it was good for me to get that 50 games.”

Johnston will enter the 2017 season with 61 games under his belt and will carry over 49 NRL career tries looking to reach the 50 try milestone.

Completing his third year with the Rabbitohs, Johnston is enjoying his time at the Club and is striving to become a Senior player down the track.

“Everyone’s a leader in this side.

“Third year now at Souths and I’m loving every minute of it and to think I am becoming more of a Senior player, I’d really love that role and I’m striving towards that.”

Johnston will spend a week in Fiji before he heads back into training to prepare for the 2017 season.
