James Newey joined the Knights in June 2020 having developed an impressive reputation in the Championship with Jersey Reds.
Newey made his Championship debut as a teenager on loan from Bristol, featuring four times in the Reds’ 2017/18 campaign.
His efforts were enough to earn him a full time contract with on the Island and he went on to score nine tries in 40 appearances over two season.
James was particularly prolific against the Knights, scoring in three of his six encounters against us for Jersey.
Despite growing up in Brecon, Wales, James represented Ireland at Under 18 level through the Exile program & his efforts in a green shirt earned him his first pro contract with Bristol.
James made just four appearances for the Bears but still managed to score against the Knights in the British and Irish Cup in October 2017.
