Now 31, Johnson also has three caps for the Springboks. 

Remarkably, he has transformed from a No 8 to a hooker in England, and he was wearing the No 2 jersey on Saturday as Wasps thrashed their northern visitors 40-10. 

Johsnon was also given the honour of leading the side out onto the field with his son alongside him. 

He took to Twitter to describe it as a "moment I will always remember".
