Wasps have announced the signing of Crusaders flanker Jonathan Poff.

The 27-year-old, a former New Zealand Under-21 international, made his Crusaders debut in 2009 and also captains Tasman in the Air New Zealand Cup provincial competition.

He said: "This is a really exciting move for me. I am looking forward to a different challenge in England."

He added: "It has been difficult to be behind such a great player as Richie McCaw, and my opportunities to start games for the Crusaders have obviously been less than I would have liked."

Wasps chief executive Chris Thomas added: "Jonathan has excellent leadership qualities, and having featured for a number of seasons in one of the best club sides in the world, he will bring a lot of top experience to the squad."
