Rory Teague has returned to the club where he started his playing career as he takes on the role of skills coach.
Gloucester-born Teague began his playing career at Kingsholm before moving down the M5 to join Bristol. He subsequently spent several years playing in France before moving into coaching at a relatively young age as he took a role at Harrow School.
He has since gone on to build an impressive coaching resume, spending time with Saracens and Wasps before moving into the international arena with a successful spell as Backs and Attacks Coach with England U20s, a period that included the team winning the Junior World Championship in 2016.
