Former Bradford Grammar School pupil Jacob Rowan has left Leeds Carnegie to join Gloucester.

The 24-year-old from Cononley captained Leeds to a third-placed finish in the Greene King IPA Championship this season before they suffered play-off elimination over two legs against London Welsh.

Rowan also skippered England Under-20s during the 2010 Junior World Championship in Argentina, leading a side that included current Gloucester players Jonny May and Shaun Knight.

“I am at the stage of my career where I want to really test myself at the highest level on a consistent basis,” said Rowan.

“When I heard that Gloucester were interested in me, it was too good an opportunity to turn down.”
