Jersey RFC have signed back row Tommy Spinks from Guinness Pro 12 finalists Glasgow Warriors.

He joins the first eleven squad for the 2015/16 campaign.

Tommy Spinks:

  • Born in Edinburgh
  • Captained Scottish Under 20s in last year's Junior World Cup
  • Two seasons with London Scottish
  • Then returned north of the border to the Scottish Rugby Academy
  • Made his Pro 12 debut for Glasgow Warriors against Munster, this February
  • Won the Melrose Sevens with Glasgow Warriors

Tommy is a player who was on the radar during his time as a Championship player and it's great to have secured the deal that will make him part of our squad. There will be a number of changes to our back row options in the new season and Tommy will be a key part of that unit."

– Jersey Head Coach Harvey Biljon.

The Jersey squad will begin training in June, ahead of pre-season matches against Welsh Pro 12 region Scarlets on 15 August and English National 1 club Blackheath on 22 August.
