Gloucester sign Leinster lock Tom Denton for next season

  • Leinster lock Tom Denton has signed to play for Premiership side Gloucester in the 2016-17 season
  • The 28-year-old previously played in the Premiership for Leeds Carnegie before joining Leinster
  • Denton has been part of a Leinster side that finished top of the Pro12
Tom Denton will join Gloucester for next season’s Aviva Premiership following four seasons at Leinster.

Denton made his professional debut for Leeds in the 2008 season as a 20-year old, representing the Yorkshire side in the Premiership and the Championship before joining Leinster.

“His arrival only makes us stronger as a unit,” said Gloucester director of rugby David Humphreys.

“We’re looking forward to welcoming Tom into our environment. During his time in the Aviva Premiership with Leeds, he proved to be a quality operator, and he has matured and improved whilst with Leinster.

“I know first hand from my time with Ulster what a quality opponent he is and he will be a welcome addition to our second row ranks.”
