ITV News can exclusively reveal Jersey RFC captain, Alex Rae, has applied for the Forwards coach role vacated by Steve Boden.
It was confirmed last week that Boden would join the Reds' Championship rivals Yorkshire Carnegie at the end of this season, and the current skipper has told us he could bring '"good experience" to the job if he is offered the role.
Rae moved to St Peter in the summer of 2013 from Wasps and has captained the side since his arrival, helping guide the team from second tier strugglers to play-off challengers in three years.
The club are expected to announce Boden's replacement on Thursday morning.
