Your Say

Anonymous says: Biggest hitter in game ever!
Johnston hit harder more often then any other player I have seen.
Tackle technique was perfect , all shoulder, all tough!
Always played tough and within the rules (14/01/2012)

Anonymous says: Absolutely spot on with that comment mate.The nicest bloke aswell. (04/03/2012)

Anonymous says: true blue hitman - every game you'd see a pearler from him - that would rock opponets backwards - once rated "the most feared man in the winfield cup"... who would take that title these days? (01/09/2012)

Anonymous says: remember this guy pulling off some big hits (06/05/2014)

Shaun Rewiti says: I am from NZ and first saw Peter Johnston play by accident as I was setting up my video recorder to record the warriors play he played for Paramatta N0 #10 and dropped a massive hit on Mario Fenech for the the North Sydney Bears I assumed it was a fluke so began to watch his games instead and never stopped and I agree 100% he is the biggest hitter and cleanest with the best tackle technique by then and todays standards wish I could find his games again to record even use as a teaching tool (09/06/2016)

Darryl says: Absolute knockout, defense commitment second to none (04/02/2017)

Andrew McGrath says: Yes definitely one of the biggest hitters I ever seen play the game. I remember when Harragon & Spud Carroll were lining each other up every time they played and beat each other senseless. Johnston played against both players and knocked them both out on more than one occasion with perfectly timed hits using chest & shoulder. Great bloke also, went to tech with his younger brother another great player (09/07/2017)

Mike says: It would be mighty hard to find a more convivial bloke than Peter. His enthusiasm for the game has not diminished a jot, which customers of his Subway franchise in Wollongong can discover if they ask him the right questions during a quiet spell in the late afternoon.

Apparently, an apt phrase to describe Peter would be what legendary Coach Gibson used to say: played strong, done fine! (21/03/2018)
