Gloucester sign new scrum half

Gloucester Rugby have added strength at the scrum half position with the signing of Andy Williams from Moseley on a short term contract until the end of the season.

The 28 year old who counts Bath Rugby, the Newport Gwent Dragons and the Ospreys amongst his former clubs, joined Gloucester on loan over the Christmas period with Rory Lawson sidelined after a blow to the head.

A Welsh international, he made his first senior Gloucester appearance as a replacement against the Worcester Warriors in the Guinness Premiership in January and will now remain at Kingsholm until the end of the season.

With Gloucester heading towards the business end of their campaign, Head Coach Bryan Redpath knows that strength in depth will be critical.

“Rory Lawson is currently with Scotland and Jordi Pasqualin will be with the England U20s squad during their Six Nations campaign so we were looking a bit thin at the position.”

“Andy’s an experienced campaigner. He’s an international who has also played a significant amount of Heineken Cup rugby so he knows all about performing at the highest level.”

“He will be with us initially until the end of the season and we’ll see where things go from there.”
