Gloucester Rugby are pleased to announce that the exciting backrow prospect, Joe Howard, has re-signed with the Gloucester Rugby Academy.
Howard captained Gloucester Rugby’s U18s to the final of the 2018/19 U18 Premiership Rugby Academy League and is looking forward to developing further having signed on with the Cherry and Whites.
Growing up playing rugby for Joondalup Brothers RUFC in Perth and KL Tigers RFS in Malaysia, Howard is a natural leader who is looking forward to the opportunities that will come his way in the future.
Howard said: “The culture of the club, it’s me written all over. George Skivington talks about hard work and that’s what is going to get you opportunities. As long as you work hard and have the right attitude and you buy into the team attitude and culture then you’re going to get opportunities. That’s what I believe in and that’s the sort of team I want to play for.
“You look at the Academy for next season and for a lot of these boys it’s our second or third year of being involved in the set up and it shows that they are staying true to their word and that they are nurturing us. They are definitely committed to growing the Academy and a few boys are starting to push through into the first team which is great for all of us.”
