DANIEL SIGNS NEW DEAL

Gloucester’s in-form England winger James Simpson-Daniel has signed a new deal with Gloucester. The 28-year-old has spent his entire career at Gloucester, having made his debut against Rotherham in 2001.

“I’m absolutely thrilled,” Simpson-Daniel told BBC Gloucestershire. “Every time I’d think about leaving it would scare me. Almost like changing school.

LAWSON URGES FOR RESPECT

Gloucester’s Lawson has said that the team should be more respect to the Rovigo trip. Gloucester won the home game 90-7 at Kingsholm in October and will be targeting another bonus point win.

Lawson told BBC Gloucestershire: “They are a proud side, and like any team at home they’ll look to come out and play with a lot of attitude and aggression.

“We’re travelling into Europe, we need to get our heads round that and put in a performance off the back of it.”
