|Rugby union career|
He is perhaps best known for being Martin Johnson's younger brother, but yet played over 200 times for Leicester and gained a number of caps for England 'A'. A good club man, known for technique and work rate, Johnson started the epic 2001 Heineken Cup Final against Stade Francais, breaking his arm and being replaced by Paul Gustard. The following year he was an unused replacement as Leicester retained the trophy. Johnson played seven times for England A but never made the break through to international level, in a similar fashion to another Leicester back rower John Wells.
Johnson joined Coventry R.F.C. in July 2006 and was made club captain, but left in December of that year to join Italian side Benetton Treviso. Since then he has moved on to captain Rugby Nice Côte d'Azur where he plays alongside Dan Luger and Kevin Yates.
