Ackermann's off-season recruitment in full cry
TRANSFER NEWS: Gloucester has signed London Irish hooker Todd Gleave.
Gleave, who turned 23 last week, is a product of the London Irish Academy who has made 13 first team appearances for the Exiles since joining ahead of the 2016-17 season.
He will provide a further option for the hooker position, competing for game time alongside James Hanson, Franco Marais, and the Academy’s Joe Mullis and Henry Walker.
Gloucester’s experienced Wales hooker Richard Hibbard left Kingsholm at the end of the season.
Meanwhile, flyhalf Lloyd Evans has signed a new contract with the club. The 22-year-old came through Gloucester’s academy and has made 13 first team appearances, scoring one try and 29 points in total.
He made his senior debut for Gloucester in the LV= Cup at Northampton in November 2013, and in May 2015, Lloyd made his Aviva Premiership debut as a replacement against Bath.
He has represented England Under-18 and England Under-20.
