Jonny is Brendan's boyfriend and a former rugby player. He's very tall, extremely handsome, and makes sure to treat Tom very kindly, especially right after Tom moves to Coghill. Jonny works in the sheds with Brendan, so Tom sees him fairly often and becomes aware that he stays the night with Brendan regularly. Later, Brendan explains that Jonny is somewhat paranoid about Tom knowing that Jonny is dating Brendan, so Brendan sits Tom down to openly discuss their relationship and their sexuality. Jonny is also deathly afraid of flying, which is why he never travels anywhere with Brendan. Tom eventually learns that prior to the accident Jonny and Brendan had planned to move to Sydney, but they chose to stay in Coghill so that Brendan could take care of his family.
