He's clocked up more than 200 appearances and there's still plenty of running in his legs. However, the Cheltenham born flanker is now looking to teach a few others some tricks of the trade.
At a club level, the man who started out his own playing career with Cheltenham Tigers is now stepping up his involvement with Cheltenham Saracens.
"I was Assistant Coach last year, we had quite a good year and got promoted out of our division. It was good fun really."
"It's quite a nice club, still quite amateur in its ways but they're relatively ambitious and are building things. They got given the clubhouse a couple of years back at King George V and are slowly making it better. They've just stuck a balcony on it which will be interesting!"
"There's a real club feel about it, the guys stick around after a game and have a few drinks and it takes me back a bit and reminds me a bit of why I first started to play the game."
"I'm doing my level 3 coaching badges this year and I need to do more coaching if I'm going to be serious about it so it fits in quite well. It'll be tough as we've just gone up a division, a couple of players have moved on so we've got to find more but it's enjoyable."
At the same time, the 33 year old is also taking on an increased role with the Gloucester Rugby Academy, helping to shape the talent of tomorrow.
"I did a little bit last year with the Academy and took one or two sessions which I quite enjoyed and it'll be good with the Under 15s as they'll be keen and receptive."
"I'll be working with Mark (Cornwell) and Billy (Clark) and they're going to give me quite a free rein. We'll train twice a week until late August/ early September and we've six or seven fixtures lined up and then it goes once a week with games on a Wednesday. It'll fit in quite well."
"One of the things that Billy and Pasty want to do is get a few more of us to come in and coach the kids and pass on some game knowledge."
"I see quite a few youngsters coming through and they're very well trained as individual athletes, very aware of their bodies, very good ball skills, very well conditioned etc."
"But they don't seem to be quite there when it comes to the team ethos side of the game. So, it'll be great to build on that through my involvement with the U15s and hopefully it'll carry through as they move through the age groups."
"They haven't had many fixtures which hasn't helped and that's what we're looking to address so we get more of a buy in to the Gloucester brand if you like. They'll get to play with each other as a team which is ultimately why you train."
"And I think that's the plan for the Academy as well, to get more meaningful fixtures which I think is a good way forward."
