Tom Savage has become the latest player to commit his future to Gloucester, with the news that he has signed a new three year contract to remain at Kingsholm.

Savage has been one of the real success stories of the past two seasons for Gloucester.

The 23-year-old came to Gloucester’s attention when he skippered Hartpury RFC in 2010-11, and he made a quick impression when invited to train with the Gloucester first team squad.

The Rugby World Cup gave him an opportunity to taste first team action quicker than he may have originally expected, but he seized the chance with both hands and went on to make 12 starts in 2011/12.

He’s already well on his way to surpassing that total this season. Now a regular in the starting line up, whether at blindside flank or in the second row, he is producing high quality performances on a weekly basis.

Director of Rugby Nigel Davies admitted that Savage is one of the players who has most impressed since he arrived at the club in the summer.

“Tom’s proof that you don’t necessarily need to have been capped at U18 or U20 level, or come through an Academy, to make it to first team level.

“He’s got real talent, but he allies that with hard work, a genuine desire to continually improve his game and a willingness to play wherever the team need him to.

“I can’t speak highly enough of his attitude and his performances this season. He’s become an integral part of the squad and his new contract is a reflection of that.

“I’m very happy that Tom will be a part of what we’re looking to achieve here at Gloucester Rugby over the next few seasons.”
