Gloucester Rugby has announced that assistant forwards coach Trevor Woordman has penned a new contract with the Gallagher Premiership club.

Woodman played most of his professional rugby with the Cherry and Whites between 1996 and 2004 and switched to Sale Sharks before announcing retirement. He also earned 22 caps for England between 1999 and 2004 and was part of the 2003 World Cup winning squad.

The 43-year-old started his coaching with Gloucester in 2014 as a forwards coach and helps in smooth transition from Academy to first-team. He also has expertise in coaching scrummaging.

“Trevor has a huge amount of experience in the game, both as a player and a coach," said Gloucester head coach George Skivington told the official website of the club.

“He’s been doing a tremendous job aiding the development of the Academy forwards over the last couple of years, but also working closely with the first team too.

“Trevor’s an outstanding coach, and his expertise will be crucial part of the coaching set-up to drive this Club forward.”

Gloucester Rugby are positioned ninth in the Gallagher Premiership table with four wins from 13 games and will face Worcester Warriors next on 15th August at Sixways.
