Gloucester extend Martyn Thomas' contract
July 2, 2013
Gloucester have given a new one-year contract to fullback Martyn Thomas.
Thomas, 26, who joined the club on a one-year deal last summer, made nine starts in all competitions last season.
"In the last year Martyn has shown us glimpses of what he's capable of," director of rugby Nigel Davies told the BBC. "I spoke to him at the end of the season and he felt a little frustrated as he felt there's more in him to give, as do we."
