Shay Kerry

Kerry, 28, arrives at the club following a two-year spell with French side Rouen Normandie, where the nine-year professional plied his trade for parts of the past three Pro D2 campaigns.

The six-foot-six forward started his professional career in Worcester Warriors’ academy program in 2013, and would go on to make five first-team appearances for the team in the British and Irish Cup before departing England for French side Oyonnax two years later.

Following three years in eastern France that were highlighted by winning the 2016-2017 Pro D2 title and earning promotion to the Top 14, Kerry ventured south for a season with Federale 1 side Narbonne.

After a season apiece with RFU Championship clubs Ampthill and Jersey Reds, Kerry returned to France for his most recent stint with Rouen, where he suited up alongside his new Arrows teammate Shane O’Leary.

Born in Canterbury, England, Kerry moved with his family to New Zealand as an elementary schooler, where he cut his teeth as a rugby player. He earned national selection at the under-17 level and featured for National Provincial Championship side Bay of Plenty before returning to his native England.
