Jersey flanker Graham Bell out for the rest of the season

Graham Bell

Jersey forward Graham Bell has been ruled out for the rest of the season with a cruciate ligament injury.

The 30-year-old former Currie flanker had been captaining the side after Paul Rodgers was ruled out for the season with a knee problem.

"It's a great loss to us," said Jersey director of rugby Ben Harvey.

"We feel very sorry for him because he's been a talismanic figure this season, he's got himself into terrific shape and he's been brilliant."

He added: "But such is professional life and other players get an opportunity and I'm sure they'll do well."

Bell has played in 20 of Jersey's matches in National One this season.
