South African one, two, three for Jersey Reds

Rugby | Published:

JERSEY REDS will be led by a trio of South Africans in 2017/18, with captain Scott Van Breda being supported by fellow new signings Roy Godfrey and Jared Saunders.

Fullback Scott Van Breda, centre, will captain Jersey Reds this season. Hooker Jared Saunders, left, and prop Roy Godfrey, right, have been named as vice-captains

Van Breda (25), who moved to St Peter from Western Province this summer, had his captaincy officially confirmed yesterday after representing the club at Twickenham for the Championship launch last week.

The fullback guided the Reds to victory against Coventry in pre-season, with prop Godfrey (28) and former Saracens hooker Saunders (26) leading the side against RC Vannes and Harlequins respectively. The front-row pair have since been named as vice-captains.

Jersey begin their sixth Championship campaign at home this Saturday, against Doncaster Knights.
