Gloucester have confirmed another part of their new-look coaching team with the appointment of Laurie Fisher as the club's new head coach.

Fisher joins Gloucester from the Brumbies and will work under new director of rugby David Humphreys and alongside attack coach Nick Walshe and defence boss John Muggleton. Gloucester are yet to announce whether Trevor Woodman is staying on as forwards coach.

Fisher, 56, has been at the Brumbies since 2012 and Gloucester CEO Stephen Vaughan hopes he will help bring through the next crop of players at the club.

"We're absolutely thrilled that he'll be joining us at Kingsholm as part of the new coaching set up," Vaughan said. "He deservedly enjoys a reputation as one of the shrewdest minds in world rugby, an individual who has continually sought to improve himself and his coaching methods. The references and feedback we have had regarding Laurie from high quality people that have worked with him have been very impressive indeed.

"That has been reflected in what he has achieved over the years with both the UC Brumbies and Munster. The number of young players he has coached to achieve great things within the game are too many to mention. It's been an incredibly hectic few weeks at the club, but we're delighted with the make-up of the playing squad and coaching staff as we look ahead."
