Centre Robling spent three years at Jersey Reds, where he has played 60 matches and scored 36 points. 

The 25-year-old came through the ranks at the Dragons Academy and later played for the senior side, Newport, Cross Keys and Bedwas. 

"I am looking forward to a new challenge after being at the Jersey Reds for three years,” Robling said. "Having spoken to Ben Ward (Ealing Trailfinders DoR) I am excited to be a part of a club that wants to play expansive rugby and that has great ambition. 

"It'll be nice to be reunited with a few old teammates and I'm looking forward to settling in quickly.”

Prop forward Tampin was born in London but played all his rugby in Yorkshire – for Rotherham Titans, Yorkshire Carnegie and Wharfedale – before he joined Jersey Reds in 2016.

Since then the 25-year-old has played 10 times for the club.

"Ealing Trailfinders is obviously a club on the rise, and having a few friends at the club who speak so highly of it, you can tell it's somewhere you want to be,” Tampin said.

"The players are clearly well coached and supported by the staff which is what you want as a player. After having not played anywhere near the amount of rugby this year that I am used to, or would like, I'm already looking forward to getting started and challenging for a space in the team, and hopefully helping the club take another big step next year.”
