Championship side Jersey Reds have signed Saracens hooker Jared Saunders, with flankers Seb Nagle-Taylor and Conor Joyce also joining next season.

Saunders, 26, has played 23 times for Sarries across the Premiership, Anglo-Welsh Cup and European competitions.

Joyce, 23, joins from Pro12 side Ulster, while Nagle-Taylor, 22, will arrive from Ealing.

Jersey hookers Jack Macfarlane, 24, and Nick Selway, 27, have also signed new contracts to keep them at St Peter.

"Jared's had Jamie George and Schalk Brits ahead of him in the queue, but I expect hooker to be a competitive position in Jersey next season as well," said Reds head coach Harvey Biljon.

"Seb is a great athlete and we are looking to realise his rugby potential, and Conor has showed in the British & Irish Cup games that he has the ability to be a stand-out Championship player."

The length of the deals have not been disclosed by the club.

Jersey are rebuilding their squad for the 2017-18 campaign, with five of their forwards leaving to join sides currently in the Premiership.
