GLOUCESTER Rugby can confirm that Karl Pryce will join Wigan Warriors Rugby League side.
Pryce (21) joined Gloucester last October on a three-year contract and although featuring in the Guinness Premiership, has been dogged by injury since his debut against Northampton and has made three first team appearances in all competitions.
"Karl is a talented and gifted rugby player and has worked hard but we all felt his future development in the game was best served by playing regularly in an environment he was familiar with," said head coach Dean Ryan.
"It is with considerable regret his time at Gloucester was not more fulfilling and we hope he goes on to have a very successful career with Wigan Warriors."
Tom Marshall scored his first Gloucester try in the 31-23 win over Saracens on Friday evening and was named Man of the Match. Talking to GRTV, he praised the forwards for setting the tone on the night.
Matt Scott was on media duty this week, and the Scottish international spoke about the benefit of having a full week of training with his club mates and the determination to get back to performing well against Saracens this Friday evening.
After the disappointment of last weekend's performance at Leicester, Director of Rugby David Humphreys told GRTV that he expects a big response from Gloucester in Friday's Aviva Premiership fixture at home to Saracens (kick off 7:45pm).
