Meanwhile, Jersey have also revealed they will host Plymouth Albion in a pre-season friendly at St Peter on Saturday, 8 August.

"We enjoyed our encounters with Albion and are pleased to have an early chance to renew acquaintances as the new season gets under way," said Jersey chairman Bill Dempsey.

"Director of rugby Graham Dawe is looking to develop a very competitive squad for the forthcoming season in National One, and this will be a good test for both clubs."
