Scott van Breda has been appointed as the new captain of Jersey Reds.
The South African full-back, who played for Western Province and the Stormers before moving to St Peter this summer, succeeds Pierce Phillips after his departure to Premiership Worcester Warriors.
The 25-year-old started two of the club’s three pre-season matches and took the armband for their home victory against Coventry.
The Reds begin their sixth season in the Championship at home to Doncaster Knights on Saturday.
Last year the club enjoyed their best ever campaign finishing fifth in English rugby’s second tier and reaching the final of the British & Irish Cup.
