Jersey have signed former Exeter youngster Charlie Walker-Blair for the remainder of the season.

The 24-year-old, who played one game in the LV= Cup for Exeter.

Walker-Blair is coming back after being sidelined by a serious knee injury he suffered a year ago.

"I'm grateful for the opportunity to get back playing with Jersey and help the club during the final two months of the season," he said.

"It's been frustrating to have been injured, but now I just want to get out on the pitch and get some games under my belt."

He can play on the wing or in the back row and is expected to be in contention for a place in the island side's squad when they face London Scottish at the start of March after suffering a minor ankle injury.

"Charlie is an exceptional player who has been held back by injuries, and I am looking forward to him showing Jersey supporters the talent that earned him a Premiership contract," said Jersey director of rugby Ben Harvey.
