Cheetahs No.8 Johnson to join London Wasps

Springboks and Cheetahs No.8 Ashley Johnson will join English Premiership Rugby Club London Wasps after the Super Rugby season.

The news of Johnson joining London Wasps comes a day after the Rugby club issued a press release urgently calling for investors to save the club from going into administration.

Ashley Johnson began his career as a hooker but a move to the back row in recent seasons has seen him excel at both Super and Provincial level with his performances earning him a first call up for the Springboks in 2009.

He won three caps in the 2011 Tri-Nations series and was considered unlucky not to be included in the highly competitive back-row mix for South Africa at the World Cup.

Johnson has been named on the bench this weekend against the Chiefs and will be used as an impact player.
