Alex Johnston Wins Tooheys New Fan Player of the Year
Rabbitohs winger, Alex Johnston, has been judged by Members and supporters as the 2015 Tooheys New Fan Player of the Year.
For the second year running, Souths Junior and winger, Johnston, was the Club's top try-scorer with 17 tries to his name, including one that will no doubt be remembered as one of the tries of the year.
Playing against the Roosters in Round 2, the brilliance of Greg Inglis combined with Johnston’s incredible speed to deliver a scintillating 110 metre effort in front of a Sunday afternoon football crowd of nearly 30,000.
Johnston’s 68 points for season 2015 was only bested by the goal-kicking genius that is Adam Reynolds, with Reynolds top-scoring for the side with 111 points. But it wasn’t just points that Johnston would contribute to the Rabbitohs season.
The La Perouse product would prove an effective deputy at fullback when required, providing safety under the high ball as well as unpredictability in his kick-returns.
In total, Johnston appeared in 25 matches, racking up a total of 2448 metres off 247 runs, while breaking the defensive line on 21 occasions and offloading 13 times.
The Tooheys New Fan Player of the Year is the culmination of a season-long online voting process that allows Members and supporters to vote for their Tooheys New Player of the Month.
Alex was presented the award by Rabbitohs Chairman, Nick Pappas. Congratulations to Alex on being named the 2015 Tooheys New Fan Player of the Year.
