The Southern Knights squad has been bolstered by three new players; Alan Gregory, Ciaran Whyte and Dylan Taylor.

Scotland U20 cap Alan Gregory joins the Southern Knights from Northumbria University. The lock, who began playing rugby at Cambridge RUFC, was involved in the Scotland age group’s six nations campaign in 2018.

Ciaran Whyte is a centre who joins the club from Ampthill RUFC in England. Originating from Selkirk, Ciaran has previously played for Isle of Mull and Boroughmuir and has also played for a Glasgow Warriors age grade side.

Back row Dylan Taylor began playing rugby at Tonbridge Juddians RFC in Kent before joining the Saracens Academy and graduating from their U18 programme last year. The powerful flanker joins the Southern Knights after a spell at Stellenbosch, in South Africa.

We look forward to extending a warm welcome to our three new Southern Knights.
