Denton to join Gloucester Rugby

Leinster Rugby can today confirm that Tom Denton will join Gloucester Rugby at the end of the season.
Denton will join Gloucester after four seasons at Leinster, having arrived from Leeds Carnegie (now Yorkshire Carnegie) back in 2012.
Denton made his professional debut for Leeds in the 2008 season as a 20-year old, representing the Yorkshire side in the Premiership and the Championship, going on to make 60 appearances during his time at Headingley.
So far this season, Denton has made 10 appearances for Leinster, including appearing as a replacement in three Champions Cup pool stage games.
Denton said that while he’s looking forward to returning to the Premiership, there is some unfinished business to take care of with Leinster first.
“I’m very excited about the prospect of returning to England and having another crack at the Premiership with a club like Gloucester, one with a great history but a bright future as well.
“I feel that my game has developed a lot while with Leinster and I know that I’ll need to perform well as Gloucester already have a number of quality second rows.
“However, we’ve got a big semi-final against Ulster to prepare for next Friday in the RDS and my focus is completely on that as I’d love to bring my time at Leinster to a close having helped to secure the Guinness PRO12 title.”
Leinster Rugby would like to wish Tom the best of luck for the future.
