Gloucester have announced that experienced full-back Jason Woodward is amongst three players who will be departing the Premiership outfit during the off-season.

The 32-year-old joined Gloucester in 2017 and represented them in 67 matches, scoring 90 points during that time.

A former New Zealand U20 player, who could also play on the wing and at centre, Woodward joined the Cherry and Whites from Premiership rivals Bristol Bears and also had stints with the Hurricanes and Melbourne Rebels in Super Rugby.

Will Britton (second-row) Jack Stanley (front-row) are the other players who will be departing the Kingsholm-based outfit.

Well wishes

Gloucester’s chief operating officer, Alex Brown, wished the three players well with their future endeavours.

“We’re truly grateful for every player that pulls on the famous Cherry and White jersey for their contribution to our club,” he said.

“Each player that is moving on this season has contributed to the journey we are on as a group, both on and off the field, and we wish them the very best for the future.”

Britton joined Gloucester from Doncaster last season but he did not play any competitive matches for the club due to a long-term injury sustained during a pre-season friendly.

Stanley represented England‘s U18 and U20 teams and made 16 appearances for the Cherry and Whites after moving to the club from Edinburgh in 2020.
