READ/WATCH: Wire head coach's praise for Luis Johnson

Here's facts you may not know about his career so far:

  • Johnson featured off the bench as a prop forward against Wigan, after only four matches in the position for the Wire's under 19s academy team. His accustomed position is second row, but he stood out against experienced Tony Clubb, NRL-bound Ryan Sutton, French international Romain Naverett and the explosive Taulima Tautai in the ranks of second-placed Wigan.
  • The athletic forward was seen catching speedy Wigan centre Oliver Gildart to prevent a try in the second half. Afterwards Gildart Tweeted: "How fast is he."

Warrington Guardian:

  • After Johnson's debut on Friday night, he was back at the club at 7.15am the next morning to get on the coach with his under 19s teammates to go to Hull and support them in the last game of their season.
  • Warrington paid Castleford Tigers £45,000 last winter to sign Johnson on a four-year contract.
  • He featured in the 2017 Academy Grand Final for Castleford Tigers against Wigan Warriors. His coach then was Peter Riding, who is now Wire's head of youth.
  • Johnson starred in the England Academy side coached by Warrington's Lee Briers last autumn and was named player of the series against France.
  • Wolves chief executive Karl Fitzpatrick said ahead of the Wigan game that Johnson deserved his first-team chance. "He's been the stand-out player in the academy team of late," he said.
  • His first appearance for The Wire came in last year's Christmas friendly against Widnes Vikings at the Halton Stadium, starting in the second row but moving into the centres after Bryson Goodwin was concussed on debut.

Warrington Guardian:

  • At that point he said the hardest thing he had ever done in his life was tackle an Army camp with his new Wire teammates last December. “The night we got home I slept 15 hours," he said. "My mum said I passed out and I woke up about 10.30am the next day."
  • Johnson is aged 19 (Date of birth: 20/02/99), hails from Leeds and is 6ft 3ins tall.
  • He first joined Castleford on a second-year scholarship in 2016.
  • Castleford Tigers supporters named him as their under 19s player of the year in 2016, when Johnson was still 17.
  • Johnson started his rugby league career with the Oulton Raiders club in Leeds.
  • Stephen Fox, who coached Johnson for a spell at Oulton Raiders, described him as 'an absolute pleasure to coach' and 'total team player'.
  • Johnson can be followed on Twitter @luisjohnson99 and on Instagram at luisjohnson99.

His debut for Wire in the loss against Wigan has got everybody talking.

Here's some of the things fans have been saying.

David Ford: I thought Johnson looked very good, made yards on impact and chased back, well looks a very prospect.

Ryan Maxwell: Awesome. Congratulations Luis.

Andrew Johnson: Fantastic debut, really excited to see him develop in the team.

Mark Gee: Looks to be a top notch player.

Shazza Langhorne: He did really well.

Mark Giblin: Really put his hand up on a tough stage!!!

Mark Christopher Moore: He did very well but you have to question why we paid £40k for a lad at 17? Trust in our own Academy instead!

Stefan Rossi to Mark Christopher Moore: A lot of money for a 17-year-old but do you not think after last night's performance he’s worth the money. I know we should trust our own academy but when you see talent like that why not snap him up before he gets better and cost a bomb. He reminded me of a young Morley the way he ran and tackled the Wigan players. I’m happy with that signing, he’s quality for 18.

Mark Christopher Moore to Stefan Rossi: Wait and see if he can carry it on consistently I’ve seen too many young players look good on debut then fail to make further impact. And no matter what, £40k in our game is a lot of money even for an established player.

Adam Birchall: Luis Johnson was outstanding.
