Ross Moriarty pens new Gloucester Rugby contract

Gloucester Rugby announce that back-row forward Ross Moriarty has sealed a new contract at the club after establishing a place in the first team.

Gloucester Rugby have announced that back-row forward Ross Moriarty has put pen to paper on a new contract.

The 20-year-old, who has represented England at Under-20s level, has established himself in the senior team having played a role in every match so far this season.

"I'm really excited to have signed on again at Gloucester," Moriarty told the club's official website. "I've obviously been here for a few years as part of the academy, and now as part of the first team squad and I'm really happy to be staying.

"I've been lucky to be involved in every game so far this season, and I'm really grateful for those opportunities and determined to make the most of them. It's been a good season so far, and I just want to build on that and make the most of what playing time I can get."

Director of rugby David Humphreys added: "I'm very pleased that Ross has committed his future to the club. He is still relatively young in rugby terms, but is already contributing hugely to what we are trying to achieve as a team.

"He looks at home whenever we throw him into first-team action. He's a strong, physical player and his understanding of the game gets better and better each and every week."

Moriarty made his first-team debut back in November 2012 in Gloucester's LV= Cup fixture against Ospreys.
