Alex Johnston had a brilliant performance against ‘the beast’ Manu Vatuvei in their victory against the Warriors and will, without a doubt, be a handful for the opposition.
Issac Luke is ruled out of tonight’s line up with a medial ligament injury, which will see Cameron McInnes into hooker and John Olive make his debut on the wing.
