Gloucester have confirmed that back-row forward Jack Clement has signed a contract extension with the Gallagher Premiership club.

Clement began his rugby journey at Bournside School in Cheltenham when he was 14 years old. He continued to play rugby when he moved to Cheltenham College, where he went on to captain their first XV.

The 23-year-old joined the academy of Gloucester aged seventeen and made his senior debut during the 2019/20 season and has 83 appearances to his name. He also represented England at the Under 17, Under 18 and Under 20 levels.

“When I first came in, we could see that Jack had all the attributes to become a great player," he told the club's official website.

“He’s worked really hard in a very competitive back row and has been very impressive this season so far.

“The most exciting thing for us, is that he’s still not reached his potential, and he’s only going to get better from playing more and learning from the more experienced back row players at the Club.”

Gloucester are positioned ninth in the Gallagher Premiership table with four wins from 13 matches.
