Johnny Sexton's younger brother, Jerry, signs for PRO14's Southern Kings

Johnny Sexton's younger brother, Jerry, has signed for the Guinness PRO14′s Southern Kings.

Jerry Sexton will join the South African side on a three-season deal after impressing during his two-year spell with the Jersey Reds in the Greene King IPA Championship.

The 26-year-old, who was part of the Ireland Under-20 side that played in the World Rugby Under-20 Championship in 2013, plays as a lock and represents an exciting acquisition for the Kings.

Currently the captain of the Jersey Reds, Sexton has previously been on the books of London Irish, Exeter Chiefs and Auch Gers.

The switch means that the Sexton brothers could well line out against one another in the PRO14 next season, when Leinster and the Kings clash.

"This is an exciting period in my career," Sexton told the Kings' official website.

"I have been following the Isuzu Southern Kings, particularly in the Guinness PRO14, and I am looking forward to be part of the team, the culture and the exciting new era that lies ahead for the franchise.

"I am grateful for the years spent at Jersey Reds and the role the club played in the growth of my career. I look forward to further growth and making a positive contribution at the Isuzu Southern Kings."
