Samoa international James Johnston leaves Wasps

05 January 2016 10:53

Wasps have announced that Samoa international prop James Johnston has left the club to 'pursue alternative options'.

Johnston suffered an injury while with Samoa during the build-up to last year's World Cup, and Wasps say that subsequent injuries meant the 29-year-old was unable to train fully or play a first-team game during his five months with the club.

" It is unfortunate that James has not been able to train regularly since joining the club, as we were really looking forward to seeing the impact he could make in a Wasps shirt," Wasps director of rugby Dai Young said.

"Unfortunately for both parties, this couldn't happen, and he leaves with our very best wishes for his next steps."
