Reds sign hooker from Munster

01/04/2021

Jersey Reds have signed hooker Eoghan Clarke from Munster.

The former Ireland under-20 player, who will turn 23 in June, was brought up in Dublin and played his first rugby for Seapoint RFC and at school for Christian Brothers College Monkstown, earning the opportunity to represent Leinster at under 19 level.

Clarke then made the move to join Munster's academy section in 2018, the year when he also represented Ireland under-20s in the Six Nations and Junior World Cup.

Director of Rugby Harvey Biljon said: 'Eoghan comes highly recommended and has been unlucky not to get more opportunities in Ireland - the move should enable him to relaunch his career in a fresh environment.'

Biljon said the new signing will bolster the Reds' front row options; fellow hookers Harry Doolan and TJ Harris are currently unavailable following injuries, with Harris potentially out of action for the remainder of the current season.

The Reds will next be in action when they take on Doncaster Knights at Castle Park on Saturday April 10th, kicking off at 2.30pm. The match will be available to stream live via the Greene King IPA Championship website.
