Kiwis to leave Pirates for Jersey
Nathan Kemp
Nathan Kemp returns after a year with Cornish Pirates
New Zealander Nathan Kemp is to return to play for Jersey RFC, a year after leaving for National League One side Cornish Pirates.

The versatile forward, who was one of the island's first professionals, is bringing Pirates centre Nick Buckley with him to strengthen the Jersey side.

They will help Jersey's promotion push from London South Division Two.

Kemp, who played for Manawatu Province against the British Lions in 2005, is returning for "family reasons".

Pirates say Buckley has been released after a job opportunity arose for him to join Kemp in Jersey, raising speculation that he may well be the latest addition to the island's professional ranks.

The island side already has a host of professionals including coach Barry George, former Bradford player Kearn Yates, Tongans Latu Maka'afi and Talite Vaioleti and Kiwis Sam Tuia and Keeiaho Bloomfield.
