Jersey Reds have made 25-year-old Wasps hooker Antonio 'TJ' Harris their sixth summer signing.

The former Bedford and Nottingham man made 14 appearances in two years with the Premiership giants.

He comes in following the news Jersey's longest-serving player, and fellow hooker, Nick Selway is to leave the club.

'Salad', as he is known, has decided to step down from full-time rugby and will play for National 1 side Chinnor next season as he pursues a career outside of the sport.

Harris is one of three hookers on Jersey's books for the 2019/20 season, with 31 players in total signed up for the next campaign.

TJ is a talented player who has had limited opportunity for game-time in the Wasps' 1st XV and now has the chance to make his mark in the Championship and to really show what he's capable of.
