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."
