Van Dam, 24, has played for New Zealand regional sides Manawatu, Bay of Plenty and Otago.

Geldenhuys, 22, made eight appearances for the Sharks out in South Africa in last year's Currie Cup competition.

Janco, Graham, Hilton and Leroy are players who have shown great potential in their careers in South Africa and New Zealand to date - now they have a chance to push on in a professional setting in the English Championship, and I'll be excited to see how they'll evolve their games after they've got stuck in to pre-season training.

– Harvey Biljon, Head Coach, Jersey Reds

Harvey Biljon has also confirmed one player who won't be part of the squad this summer.

Irish winger Ross Adair has left Jersey, having not played since the Reds' pre-season matches in August.
