Sam Johnson joined Glasgow Warriors from Queensland Reds and debuted against Ospreys in November 2015.

The centre first played schoolboy rugby for Australia 'A' after winning the Associated Independent Colleges competition with St Edmund's College in 2011.

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 Glasgow Warriors.

The Australian 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.

He was rewarded with a first Scotland cap in the 2018 Guinness Six Nations opener against Italy at BT Murrayfield, scoring tries against Ireland and - in memorable fashion - England in that year's tournament.
