"The Six Nations is a tournament very close to my heart," said Johnson.

"It has provided me with some incredible memories during my rugby career."

Wales captain Warburton, ruled out of the Six Nations following knee surgery, added: "While I'll miss being out there on the pitch it's great to still be involved in this incredible tournament."
