Mark joined the club from Bedford Blues ahead of the 2014/15 season. He began as an outside half during his time at both London Wasps and Sale Sharks. But during his time with the Blues at Goldington Road, he developed into a hugely exciting centre.

His versatility across the backline, aligned to his size and speed, mean he has been a very welcome addition into the Gloucester back division and another example of the quality of rugby players in the second tier of English club rugby.

Mark made an impressive 23 appearances in his first season in Cherry and White, scoring four tries and followed that up with strong contributions in his next three seasons, particularly making his mark in the club's European campaigns. He scored six tries in 2017-18 - a season best for him in a Gloucester shirt.

He passed a century of appearances for the club in 2018-19 and was selected in the Premiership Rugby Team of the Season. Mark also earned a Barbarians call-up to play against England at Twickenham.
