He played Rugby League for the Gold Coast Titans U20s after school, before returning to Rugby Union at the end of 2013, when he joined the Queensland Reds wider training squad and returned to his former club GPS.
Johnson made two Super Rugby appearances for the Reds and was named on the bench a further three times, before joining his club-mates at Scotstoun.
The Queensland-born centre was jointly voted as Player's Player of the Season at the 2017/18 awards dinner, having impressed with a string of consistently high-quality performances in the Warriors midfield.
