Billy Twelvetrees joined Gloucester Rugby from the Leicester Tigers ahead of the 2012-13 season. Originally from Sussex, Billy joined the Tigers Academy in 2007 and had a spell at Leicester Lions as well as scoring 18 tries, 16 conversions, and 13 penalties on loan for Bedford in 2008-09. Capped at Saxons level by England, he possesses an ideal mix of size and skill. He has a fine boot when kicking out of hand and is a more than capable goal kicker. Quickly impressed with Gloucester and earned a call up to England's Elite Player Squad for the 2013 Six Nations, making his debut against Scotland at Twickenham, scoring a try in the process. A fine first season was reflected in his selection for the England tour of Argentina. He scored a try in the first test before being called up to the British & Irish Lions squad. Billy then continued his fine form on the international stage coupled with picking up the captaincy for the Cherry and Whites as he appeared in all 5 games in the 2014 RBS Six Nations. Billy was named club captain of the Cherry and Whites ahead of the 2014-15 season and continued in that role in 2015-16. He is now approaching 200 appearances for the club and has scored more than 360 points in total over the past two seasons as he continues to perform at a high level.
