May wants Gloucester Rugby wing position

There was a time when Johnny May was the Jack of all Trades in the back line, but now, the youngster wants to be the master of one.

The extremely versatile flier for Gloucester Rugby wants to become an expert winger and Director of Rugby for the club Nigel Davies has backed the young gun to live up to the role. The 22 year old has been extremely impressive for The Cherry Whites from inside centre out. However, the speedster born in Swindon wants to settle down into the role of a winger.

Gloucester Rugby finally Sign D’Apice

Tomasso D’Apice may be considered as a hidden gem for the Aviva premiership Rugby Union side Gloucester Rugby and had to work very hard to earn his one year contract at Kingsholm, but Nigel Davies has backed the Italian to secure a long term future at the club. The Italian hooker had been training with The Cherry Whites for almost five weeks but it was only on the 4th of September that the club took up the option of signing him and registering him for the Aviva Premiership.

Gloucester Rugby make Hamilton New Captain

Aviva Premiership Rugby Union side Gloucester Rugby have made the formal announcement that Jim Hamilton will be taking over as the new captain of the club for the new season of English professional rugby and ends months of speculation regarding who will be chosen to lead the side on to the field. The appointment of Hamilton as the new captain of the club follows the departure of Luke Narraway, who captained the club last season to Perpignan over the summer transfer window.

Gloucester Rugby Secure Rob Cook Signing

Aviva Premiership Rugby Union side Gloucester Rugby have secured the services of Rob Cook from the RFU Championship side the Cornish Pirates and bolstered their ranks ahead of their pre-season training camp in France.

The full back will join up with the side across the Channel during the training camp after agreeing a long term deal with the club. Born in Lincoln, the player who celebrated his 28th birthday last week was a regular for the Cornish Pirates during their Championship campaign last season and was a regular scorer for the side as well.

VOYCE TO MOVE ON

Tom Voyce, the ARCH finisher for the Aviva Premiership side Gloucester Rugby is almost certain to leave the club at the end of the season after the coach Bryan Redpath decided not to offer him a contract extension.

KNIGHT GETS HIS CHANCE

Shaun Knight’s appearance at the Aviva Premiership was quite an experience for him. Representing the Gloucester Rugby club for the first time, he managed to make quite an impact.

Irrespective of the impact, what is more promising is the fact that he managed to make his debut in the prestigious Aviva premiership which has been known for having great skilled game play.

GLOUCESTER LOOKING GOOD

Gloucester were in great shape and form as they took on their rivals London Wasps at Kingsholm.

They played brilliantly and thrashed their opponents thirty nine to ten in the Aviva Premiership. They played some exceptional rugby to thrash the Wasps heavily in the much awaited fixture.

This great win now places Gloucester at the fifth place in the league while the embarrassing loss for the London Wasps saw them drop down to the ninth spot in the league table.

GLOUCESTER FORM A WORRY

Gloucester’s current run of form is proving a major worry for head coach Brian Redpath. Wining just once in their last seven Premiership games has led to the Scot calling an emergency meeting to plot a way for the Cherry and Whites to get back to winning ways.

The most recent defeat, perhaps the most worrying so far saw Gloucester throw away a lead for the fourth time this season, leading 20-10 until the sin binning of Alasdair Strokosch, the Cherry and Whites looked comfortable. But basement boys Newcastle struck back to pick up only their second win of the season 26-25.
