New Gloucester deal for Redpath

Gloucester head coach Bryan Redpath has signed a new contract with the Aviva Premiership title challengers.

And Gloucester forwards coach Carl Hogg has joined Redpath in committing his future at Kingsholm until at least 2014. Former Scotland scrum-half Redpath is in his second season at the helm after initially joining the club as backs coach.

And a new deal is no surprise, given Gloucester's success this season that has already netted the LV= Cup - the club's first silverware in five years - and a third-place Premiership finish which means a play-off clash against Saracens at Vicarage Road next Sunday. He said: "We've got an outstanding group of staff and all their hard work has gone into what we've achieved so far this year."

Redpath's fellow ex-Scotland international Hogg, meanwhile, has been at Kingsholm since 2006 and served as academy manager before taking on his current role as forwards coach.

He added: "The performance so far has yielded a contract renewal for myself and Carl, and I'm delighted to stay. I've thoroughly enjoyed it, even though it has been tough. We're trying to build an old-fashioned club culture.

"I can't think of any better place to do that than at Gloucester, and three years gives us a good platform. The challenge now is to improve again for next season."
