Wasps sign former Wallabies scrum-half
ESPN Staff
January 28, 2014

London Wasps have signed former Australia scrum-half Brett Sheehan until the end of the Aviva Premiership season to add to their options after the injury to Jack Moates.

Sheehan, who has seven Wallabies caps to his name, farewelled Super Rugby in 2013 after three years with Western Force and six seasons with New South Wales Warratahs. He last played for Australia in \2012.

"We have been operating with only two first-team scrum-halves in recent weeks, which cleary isn't enough," Wasps director of rugby Dai Young said of the decision to recruit Sheahan. "To be able to bring in someone with the experience that Brett has is brilliant.

"We have two talented young scrum halves here in Joe Simpson and Charlie Davies so Brett brings a great balance to that group and I have no doubt that his experience will be a benefit for those two, as well as Jack Moates as he continues his recovery from injury."

Sheehan said: "Having played all of my club rugby in Australia, it is great for me to be able to go overseas and experience a different league and a different brand of rugby."
