He has represented England at U21 and Saxons level and toured South Africa with the full England side in 2007, only missing out on a full cap because of injury. He was also part of the England 2009 summer squad for the matches against the Barbarians and Argentina.
Having only turned 27 last weekend, Wood is one of the most experienced young props in the Guinness Premiership with arguably the best years of his career still ahead of him.
Making his debut as a replacement against London Irish in the Premiership at the Madejski Stadium in September 2003, Wood has since gone on to make well over 100 appearances for the club.
Head Coach Bryan Redpath told the club website today:
"I'm really pleased that Nick has committed to Gloucester Rugby. If you look at how many appearances he's made over the past few seasons then you'll understand what an integral part of our scrum he has been."
"He's only just turned 27 and quality props seem to get better as they get older so we're expecting big things from Nick."
Wood himself is simply glad to have resolved his future:
"It's good to get it done. I've been at Gloucester my whole career and couldn't really see myself anywhere else."
"We've been so close to major honours during my time here and I want to be part of a Gloucester side that takes that next step."
"For now though, it's all about the rest of this season and winning as many games as possible."
