Gloucester Rugby have announced that Henry Trinder has made an exit from the club ending his 14-year association.

Trinder made his professional rugby debut with the Cherry and Whites in 2007 and since then has racked up 172 appearances for the club scoring 46 tries. He has also featured in 122 Premiership games for Gloucester.

The 31-year-old will now move to French club RC Vannes to compete in the second tier Pro D2 and help them gain a promotion to Top 14.

“I’ve personally had the pleasure of knowing Henry for a very long time, and for a large part of his journey with Gloucester Rugby. He has been a wonderful servant to this Club, and whilst we are sad to see Henry move on, we are also excited for him and his young family," said Chief Operating Officer Alex Brown.

“It goes without saying that Henry has given a huge amount of his life to this Club and has left many of us with fond memories of seeing his magic on the pitch at Kingsholm.

“We’d like to wish Henry and his family the very best of luck for their new adventure in France.”
