Billy Burns signs new contract to remain at Gloucester Rugby

BillyBurnsGloucester

Gloucester Rugby can today confirm that fly-half Billy Burns has agreed a new deal at Kingsholm, tying the Junior World Champion to the club for the foreseeable future.

Burns, 20, made his first start for the Cherry and Whites against Worcester Warriors, alongside elder brother Freddie, on the final day of the 2013-14 Aviva Premiership season and, to date, has made 13 first team appearances.
 
Burns, alongside team-mates Callum Braley, Ross Moriarty and Henry Purdy, under the stewardship of Backs Coach Nick Walshe, were part of the England Under 20 squad that successfully defended their Junior World Championship title in New Zealand this summer.
 
The young fly half is the latest first team player to agree terms on a new deal in recent weeks, following in the footsteps of Matt Kvesic, Jonny May, Ross Moriarty and Gareth Evans.
 
Director of Rugby David Humphreys said:
 
"Billy has shown that he has all the attributes to be successful in a Cherry and White shirt, and his attitude and application to learn have been top notch.
 
"He is always willing to take on advice from the likes of James (Hook) and Greig (Laidlaw) and we are delighted he has agreed to continue his development as a professional player at Gloucester Rugby.
 
"He's a bright young talent and we hope to see him continuing to progress and fulfilling his undoubted talent.”
 
And Burns himself was pleased to have put pen to paper when he spoke exclusively to the club website:
 
"I'm delighted to be extending my time at the club. I've been really pleased with how my game has come on during my time here, and am really excited to continue working with the players and coaches in this squad.
 
"It's a great honour for me that the coaches believe in me, and a big opportunity for me to continue my learning and development at such a great club.”
