We Have To Play Our Best Footy: Johnston

After adding another two tries to his NRL career stats, Alex Johnston spoke to Rabbitohs Media after the sides 34-12 victory over the Newcastle Knights.

Describing Sunday afternoon’s game, Johnston not only credits his team mates for their performance but also the fans who made the trip up to Newcastle.

“They were a pretty easy two tries for me, I didn’t have to do much but I’ll take it any day of the week but full credit to the boys to get it out to me,” said Johnston.

“We seemed to attack a lot better but it’s our defence at the moment that we are just thriving off and we did well out there for the fans that came up and we just have to take it into next week.”  

Looking ahead to the Rabbitohs last game for the season on Friday night, Johnston, who took off on a total of 11 runs covering 151 metres and clocked up two line breaks and four tackle busts will be looking to build on what he believes will be a tough performance against the Bulldogs.

“I think we gave a few penalties away today and we really need to focus on our defence. They are in the top eight so we have to play our best footy to beat them.”  

“Whenever we verse the Bulldogs it’s a great game and having our members and fans there just creates the atmosphere here for us that we thrive off.”


The South Sydney Rabbitohs return to ANZ Stadium to take on the Canterbury-Bankstown Bulldogs for the final match of our 2016 NRL season.
