The Rising’s equal leading player in terms of NRC appearances (with Jack Debreczini), Johansson has probably been the poster boy for the quality of the Melbourne rugby scene. Melbourne born and raised, Johansson played for the Queensland Reds for four seasons, including three Tests for Australia in 2005.

After stints in Italy and Japan, and returning to Melbourne, Johansson became a foundation Rebel in 2012. The Harlequin centre has been a mainstay throughout the club’s premiership success, with consistent form rewarded with a birth in the Rising squad since the NRC kicked off in 2014.
