The Welsh international second row joined Gloucester for the 2006-7 season from Cornish Pirates and after 7 seasons at the club, announced his retirement from professional rugby in 2014 to become the Head of Rugby at Ampleforth College, Yorkshire.

As well as being the Chairman of the RPA, Will enjoyed a great career in Cherry and White and throughout his professional career, after captaining Gloucester on his 150th appearance against Munster Rugby in October 2013 in the Heineken Cup.

He was included in Warren Gatland’s 2008 Six Nations squad and Gareth Jenkins’ World Cup Squad. 

At 6ft 6in he became a crucial member of the Gloucester squad thanks to his work-rate, fitness and physicality.

As a front jumper, Will also combined his line-out contribution with power at the scrum and ball carrying qualities as well as setting a fine example to younger members throughout the club.

Will signed a 2 year contract extension in January 2010 and enjoyed a typically solid season in 2010-11, making 21 appearances. 

2011-12 saw him feature regularly again and he put pen to paper on a new contract in the spring, while 2012-13 saw him step up to the plate particularly following the loss of Alex Brown to injury.

Will lead the team out, along with his two daughters on his final Kingsholm appearance against London Irish in May 2014
