The ambitious winger insists that he has got what it takes and has thoroughly enjoyed his time at Kingsholm so far.
"Just about a week I've been here now, great bunch of boys.
"I've just finished playing fifteens in the US against Canada and before that 7s for the US in the World Series. I've been playing with them for the last 2 years but I wanted to concentrate more on 15s.
"My coach got in touch with Gloucester and they said they would have a look at me for a week. Luckily enough there was a game so I could impress because it's difficult to get in to training with the players around you.
"You've only got a week really to show what you're about and impress."
Monday nights 34-3 victory over Worcester Cavaliers saw Gloucester United field an experienced and talented squad and Hume is thankful for having the platform of players such as Jonny Bentley and Jimmy Cowan around him to allow him to flourish.
He was rewarded as he crossed for Gloucester's first try and threatened throughout.
"If you look at the team we had out, they're all pushing for the first team, some were on the bench on Saturday so as far as I'm concerned I always play a lot better when I've got better players around me. So we had a great fifteen out there.
"It was a good game, I'm pleased with how I played and the boys around me helped me out."
"I've been staying with Henry Trinder and Martyn Thomas whilst I've been here and they've been joking that Nigel will be doing the gladiator thumbs up or thumbs down, but the game helped me and hopefully I impressed."
Hume, also an experienced Sevens' player has had a busy period of rugby and is determined to carry on his good form in the shortened format and make an impact in England's top league.
"I've been on the Sevens circuit, travelling for the last 19 months of the year. Just finished playing the 15s against Canada for the US and then I came straight to London.
"I want to play at the highest level that I'm capable of, this is a great club and I'd love to stay here. It's a club with a lot of depth in the back three division and it's now in the big man teams so to speak".
