James Hanson Commits to Staying at Holm

James Hanson Commits to Staying at Holm
Gloucester Rugby are delighted to confirm today that James Hanson has signed a new contract at Kingsholm

The Australian international initially joined Gloucester Rugby in 2017 on a short-term deal, but his eye-catching performances, and desire to play in Cherry & White, led to the hooker signing a permanent deal.

Since then, Brisbane-born Hanson has gone on to make 32 appearances for the club, scoring 6 tries in the process. Widely known as ‘Chibba’ amongst the squad, Hanson is recognised for his dynamic style of play and impressive record at the set piece. He will form a key part of the Gloucester Rugby squad going forward, and the player himself is looking forward to getting back out on the pitch.

“I can’t wait to pull on the jersey again and run out in Cherry & White. It’s been a great honour to represent this club and playing in front of the passionate Gloucester fans has been amazing.

“We’ve made great progress as a team, and I truly believe that we have a bright future ahead of us.”

Lance Bradley, Chief Executive Officer, commented “We’re delighted that Chibba has decided to stay at the Club. We were aware that he had been exploring options with other clubs, but when we sat down with him and outlined our vision for the future, and the part we saw him playing in it, it was clear that he wanted to stay. We’re all looking forward to seeing him playing at Kingsholm again soon.”
