Back-row forward Ross Moriarty has signed a new contract with Premiership side Gloucester.

The 20-year-old came through the academy at Hartpury College and made his Cherry and Whites debut in 2012.

Moriarty has now made 20 appearances for the first-team, nine of them as an ever-present this season.

He has also represented England at Under-20s level, and was part of the team that won the Junior World Championship in 2013 and 2014.

"I'm very pleased that Ross has committed his future to the club. He is still relatively young in rugby terms, but is already contributing hugely to what we are trying to achieve as a team," said director of rugby David Humphreys.

"He looks at home whenever we throw him into first-team action. He's a strong, physical player and his understanding of the game gets better and better each and every week."

Moriarty is the third player in recent weeks to commit his future to Gloucester, following England pair Jonny May and Matt Kvesic, but the club has not disclosed the length of his deal.
