Denton making Gloucester switch


Tom Denton is to join Gloucester at the end of the season.

Denton made his professional debut for Leeds Carnegie in 2008 and went on to make 60 appearances for the club before moving to Leinster in 2012.

He has spent four years at Leinster but will return to the Aviva Premiership in the summer.

"I'm very excited about the prospect of returning to England and having another crack at the Premiership with a club like Gloucester, one with a great history but a bright future as well," Denton said.

"I feel that my game has developed a lot while with Leinster and I know that I'll need to perform well as Gloucester already have a number of quality second rows.

"However, we've got a big semi-final against Ulster to prepare for next Friday in the RDS and my focus is completely on that as I'd love to bring my time at Leinster to a close having helped to secure the Guinness PRO12 title.”
