GLOUCESTER prop Terry Sigley has left the club by mutual consent.
The 28-year-old has made 37 appearances in three years at Gloucester, as well as appearing on loan for Pertemps Bees and Bath this season. His current contract had 13 months to run, but he will now move on in search of more regular 1st XV starting opportunities.
"Terry has a lot of natural talent and we wish him well in the future," said head coach Dean Ryan. "Hopefully he'll make a full recovery from his current wrist injury and be back playing rugby as soon as possible."
Sigley added: "I'd like to thank the club and the fans who have supported me over the last few years at Gloucester. I look forward to returning to Kingsholm in the future."
Speaking to the local media this week, David Humphreys insisted that Gloucester are looking forward to kicking off the new European Rugby Challenge Cup against Brive on Thursday evening, although an unfamiliar opponent and a five day turnaround will pose a challenge.
Director of Rugby David Humphreys felt that his Gloucester side put themselves in a position to put Saracens under real pressure at Allianz Park on Saturday, praising his team's commitment and defence, while admitting that a lack of accuracy hit their chances in the second half.
Speaking to the local media at Allianz Park, Tom Savage was disappointed after the defeat at Saracens, but claimed Gloucester did plenty of good things and could've taken more than a losing bonus point.
In case you missed it, there was plenty of activity on the official Gloucester Rugby website following the 55-0 European Rugby Challenge Cup win over CA Brive, including a number of post match video interviews.
