Northampton hooker Reece Marshall has joined Championship side Jersey Reds on a short-term loan deal.

The 25-year-old has recovered from a serious hamstring injury which has seen him miss all of the current season.

He started 12 games for Saints last season and was a replacement in 12 more, scoring six tries.

"I've not been able to get a run of games, so I spoke to Chris [Boyd, Saints' director of rugby] and the opportunity came up," Marshall said.

"I've heard good things about here so why not, it's a good opportunity to get some rugby in," he added to BBC Radio Jersey.
