Date of birth





Fly-Half Russell Bennett arrived from Championship Champions Jersey Reds following their demise earlier in the season.

Originally from the South Coast, Russell made his way through the London Irish age groups all the way through until U18s.

Having fallen out of the system, Russell made his way to Cardiff Metropolitan University to study whilst playing in BUCS Super Rugby. Due to the unfortunate circumstances of COVID his university playing time was cut short. But, as restrictions began to ease, he managed to find himself a spot in the Ampthill squad during his last year of university. He went on to make 29 appearances for Ampthill over 2 seasons before joining Jersey last season.

Russell featured in 28 games last season for Jersey on the way to lifting the league title and being cup runners up.
