Gloucester have confirmed that Franco Marais will return to Kingsholm until the end of the season,
The 27-year-old hooker has previously made 35 appearances for the Cherry & Whites and he will now look to add to that tally before heading to the Red Hurricanes in the Japanese Top League at the conclusion of the 2019-20 Gallagher Premiership campaign.
Franco will re-join the squad for training today, as preparations continue for the eagerly anticipated restart.
