Gloucester second rower extends until 2012

Gloucester Rugby second row Will James has signed a new two year contract with Gloucester Rugby which will keep him at Kingsholm until the end of the 2011-12 season.

James, who made his debut against Bath Rugby back in September 2006, is the latest player to extend his stay with Gloucester having joined the club from the Cornish Pirates.

A Welsh international who was part of Wales’ 2007 Rugby World and 2008 RBS Six Nations squads, James has become a key part of the Gloucester squad impressing with his power in the scrum and ball carrying ability in the loose.

James, who has just returned to full training following a knee injury, was understandably pleased to remain at Gloucester as he told the club website today:

“I didn’t hesitate when it came to signing on the dotted line because the time I’ve spent at Gloucester has been the best of my career.”

“Now that my future is settled, I can fully concentrate on getting match fit and playing my part in the rest of this season and beyond.”

Head Coach Bryan Redpath added,”The past couple of weeks have shown that we’re building a squad here at Gloucester that is capable of challenging for honours.”

“Will has a big part to play in that. We’ve got some quality performers in the second row and real competition for places which is exactly as it should be.”
