The England international number eight moved to Kingsholm from the Scarlets in the summer of 2012 and has gone on to become a crucial part of the first team, closing in on 150 competitive appearances.

Director of rugby David Humphreys feels that there is still a lot more to come, even though the club’s media release didn’t reveal how many more seasons the player has actually signed for.

Ben has been a revelation for us over the past couple of years. He has worked so hard on his fitness and his skills in a bid to contribute as much as he possibly can, and it’s certainly paid off in terms of his performances.

“He has also become a real leader in the group. That’s not just in terms of captaining the side on a matchday, he also helps to drive standards in all areas. We’re delighted that he’ll be staying with Gloucester.”

Morgan himself admitted that it had been a straightforward decision. “It’s well documented how I feel about the club. I grew up as a Gloucester supporter and it was always a dream of mine to play for the club.

“As such, I feel honoured to have worn the Cherry and White for so many seasons and look forward to doing so for several more and helping the club to achieve success on and off the field.

“I’m enjoying my rugby as much as ever and am genuinely enthusiastic about the direction we’re heading in under Johan. I didn’t have to think too long when talks started about a new contract and I’m delighted that it’s all been agreed so quickly.”
