The powerful South African, who played a key role in guiding the Reds to their best ever Championship finish, had his contract terminated last month and has subsequently left the Island. It is understood that he was already on a warning when he breached club protocols in early April.

Exact details of Marx’s misdemeanours have not been made public, with Reds officials declining to go further than simply confirming his departure in a short statement.

‘We can confirm that Koch Marx left Jersey Reds in April having been released from his contract,’ said a club spokesman.

On 2 April the 25-year-old was included on a public list of players retained by the Reds for the 2019/20 season, but this week, when new signings Tom Williams and Greg Dyer were announced, his name was absent.

Marx – hampered by injury over the winter – made 14 appearances for Jersey following his arrival from South African Currie Cup club Griquas, scoring three tries. His last appearance was during the away win against Richmond on 30 March.
