Be good to see him make a real impact. He's been about a while now. Maybe going to Widnes will help him get his career back on track.

Johnson always looked a decent prospect coming through the juniors at Saints but unfortunately for him his lack of size & strength hampers him at 1st team level. He simply doesn't have the frame to be a good prop or the pace & skill to be a good back rower.

 

He'll make a good squad player at Widnes but isn't really going to improve their team

About right I reckon. He's a big hearted and very committed player, one who perhaps one or two of the players still on Hull's books could learn a lesson from, but simply isn't big enough to make any impact in the forwards.

Best of luck to him in the future.

                               

                     Hull FC are continuing to slide down the league...

                             you'll all just have to get used to it
