Gloucester sign England Under-20 pair
June 17, 2014
Gloucester have signed Bristol scrum-half Callum Braley and Leicester centre Henry Purdy, while fly-half Billy Burns has agreed a new deal.
All three players are part of the England Under-20 squad which have reached the Junior World Championship final in New Zealand.
Braley played 15 games during Bristol's failed promotion bid while Purdy was a member of Leicester's academy set-up. Burns, the younger brother of England's Freddie Burns, has already made eight first-team appearances for Gloucester.
