Rabbitohs outside back, Alex Johnston, isn’t concerned about what position he is selected to play in this weekend when the Rabbitohs return to Perth to take on the Gold Coast Titans – the Souths Junior is simply prepared to do his job for the team.
Since returning from a ham-string injury, Johnston has played at fullback and on the wing, But while comfortable on the flank, Johnston told the media today (Monday) that he has much improvement left in him if he is to become a permanent fullback.
“I feel as though I’m most comfortable on the wing in this grade,” said Johnston.
“I’ve played a lot on the wing but I still really want to make that transition to fullback – I’ve got a lot of work and improvement to do, that’s for sure.”
Johnston also responded to questions about the Club’s two Origin representatives, Greg Inglis and Adam Reynolds, and whether the pair will back up on Sunday in Perth after facing off in Origin I on Wednesday.
“I think so. I haven’t heard too much,” admitted Johnston.
“’Reyno’ and Greg – they’re great players and tough, and they’ll do whatever they have to, to do the best for the team. I think they’ll be ready.
“I’m sure they might sit a few training sessions out and get the body right, but I think they’ll play.”
