Brett Sheehan Western Force scrum half 2013

Wasps stint: Sheehan

London Wasps have announced the signature of experienced Australian scrum-half Brett Sheehan until the end of the Aviva Premiership season.

Following Jack Moates' injury earlier this year, Dai Young has added to his options at scrum-half with the signing of the Western Force player.

Sheehan, who has seven Australian caps to his name, will join them next week. The physical scrum-half joined the Western Force in 2010 after six seasons with the Waratahs and made his last appearance for his country in 2012.

"We have been operating with only two first team scrum-halves in recent weeks, which clearly isn't enough," said Young.

"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."

On the move, Sheehan said: "Having played all 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.

"Since the move was suggested to me, I have been impressed with what Dai Young and his team are doing at Wasps. The young players they have at the Club are very exciting and I hope that I can impart a bit of my experience during my time there; I can't wait to get going."
