Ospreys sign Campbell Johnstone until end of season

The Ospreys have signed former All Black Campbell Johnstone until the end of the season.

The team says the move provides "much needed cover for existing tight-heads Aaron Jarvis, Adam Jones and Joe Rees who are all ruled out with injury. "

The 32-year-old from Waipukurau will start at the club in time for back-to-back Heineken Cup clashes.

Johnstone's arrival comes just days after the return of Cai Griffiths on loan from London Irish.

The arrival of Campbell and Cai gives us some much needed options at tight-head given the injuries we've suffered and the ongoing commitments we have to the national set-up at senior and age-grade level.

– Andy Lloyd, Rugby Operations Manager at the region
