Wales star Anscombe ‘signs for Gloucester’

Gareth Anscombe has reportedly signed for Gloucester.

The Wales outside-half was offered a one-year deal by the English club last week, with RugbyPass now reporting the contract has been signed. The Gallagher Premiership club have been in the market for a new No.1src for next season, with Scottish fly-half Adam Hastings heading to Glasgow.

Anscombe has been out of action since suffering a groin injury in the warm-up ahead of the World Cup clash with Georgia last year.

His registration Japan League One club Tokyo Suntory Sungoliath was cancelled after just two weeks, when a scan revealed he would need an operation on his groin injury. Since then, Anscombe has been back in Wales, training and rehabbing with the Welsh national team as he nears a return to action.

However, despite being unregistered in favour of Argentina fly-half Nicholas Sanchez, his contract in Japan, which lasts up to this summer, wasn’t strictly cancelled. But it seems unlikely he’d feature for Sungoliath ahead of the end of their season in May, given only three foreign players can be registered at any time – with Sam Cane and Cheslin Kolbe registered in addition to Sanchez.

Anscombe is understood to still be a part of Wales’ plans moving forward. While the move to Japan was always going to rule him out of the Six Nations, the fly-half has made no secret of his availability for the summer tour.
