London Wasps have confirmed the signature of Cheetahs loose forward Ashley Johnson on a two-year deal.
The 25-year-old former hooker, who has a few Bok caps to his name, has endured a frustrating Super Rugby season to date, with Cheetahs Naka Drotske opting to use hi as an impact replacement this year, rather than a starting option. Johnson has himself confirmed the move via Twitter, although the timing of his departure is not yet known. It is assumed, though, that he’ll head to the UK ahead of the start of the next UK season in mid-year.
Wasps, who are struggling financially and may go into administration unless new investment can be obtained, have also signed veteran Welsh flyhalf Stephen Jones.Tweet
