Ed Shervington Worcester Warriors 2012

London switch: Ed Shervington

London Wasps have signed hooker Ed Shervington from Worcester Warriors for next season, as well as re-signing Tom Lindsay.

Shervington, who has made 90 appearances for Worcester Warriors since moving from the Ospreys in 2010, has impressed with his physicality, ball carrying ability and reliability at the set piece. The 29-year-old hooker previously represented Wales at U18, U19 and U21 levels, but is English qualified.

Lindsay, who is still only 26, recently passed 100 appearances for the Club and has already featured in 28 games this season. A powerful ball-carrying hooker, Lindsay has consistently provided a huge impact from the bench as well as showing his ability when given the starting shirt.

"We have seen this year that it is important to have three top-level hookers in your squad and with these two players, along with Carlo Festuccia, that is what we will have for next season," said Wasps director of rugby Dai Young.

"Tom Lindsay has been a great servant for this Club, already passing 100 appearances, and, with his ball-carrying ability, he is a great player to have in the mix. Ed Shervington has impressed me with his physical displays for Worcester and I am very confident that he will be a very good addition to our squad moving forward."

Shervington will join the following new signings at Wasps next season: Samoa centre/wing Alapati Leiua, Wales lock Bradley Davies, Italy prop Lorenzo Cittadini, Scotland fly-half Ruaridh Jackson, England Saxons back-row James Gaskell and Saxons full back Rob Miller.
