Good Friday’s clash between the Rabbitohs and Bulldogs will see two giant forward packs come together, and Rabbitohs winger Alex Johnston believes he’ll have one of the best seats in the house to watch it unfold.
There’ll be matchups aplenty when both sides go head to head, with the likes of Bulldog, James Graham and Aiden Tolman facing off against George and Thomas Burgess and the rest of the Rabbitohs pack.
Johnston is excited by the prospect of being on-field to see the battle first-hand on the ground.
“I love playing footy and watching it from the side there – just watching the forwards clash,” said Johnston.
“It will be a good game and a tight contest.”
Johnston has started the 2015 season with a bang, having scored an incredible try against the Roosters in Round 2, as he continues to cement his place on the Rabbitohs flank. But while the Souths Junior says he is feeling more confident nowadays, he is the first to admit that he has plenty to learn.
“I’m getting a lot more confidence that’s for sure,” said Johnston.
“Definitely, I’m still learning a lot. I’m still just trying to get my foot through the door and just learn from the others.”
