Alex Johnston and Nathan Merritt have both been voted on the Wing for the Menulog Team of the Decade and are both South Sydney Juniors.
Between the two speedsters, for the Club they have a combined total of 252 tries from 362 matches. Both Merritt and Johnston have topped the NRL try-scoring (Merritt joint Ken Irvine Medalist with Ben Barba in 2011), with Alex Johnston reaching that milestone twice in his career (2014 and 2020).

They both hold the record for the most tries in a match by a South Sydney player with five tries. Again Nathan Merritt reached this fete in 2011 against the Eels with Alex Johnston hitting the five-try mark twice in his career (against the Panthers in 2017 and the Roosters in 2020). Alex Johnston is only the second Rabbitohs player to reach this milestone twice with the great Harold Horder.
