Gloucester Rugby is deeply saddened to hear the news of the passing of former Club Captain, Dave Sims aged 52.
First representing the Cherry & Whites via the Colts side in 1987, Sims' debut for the first team came off the bench in 1988 against Ebbw Vale. Sims went on to have an illustrious career for Gloucester Rugby, providing them with 12 years of sterling service as an uncompromising second row forward, having also played at number 8 during the early part of his career at the Club.
Sims also went on to play for England 3 times.
Dave Sims will be forever etched into history at Kingsholm, and will remain a true great of the Club.
Our thoughts are with Dave's family and friends at this sad time.
