Founded in 1873, Gloucester are a historic club. Playing out of Kingsholm, Gloucester are always a challenger for the Aviva Premiership title, despite last topping the Premiership table in 2008.
Gloucester’s big matches against local rivals Bath and Worcester Warriors are some of the most exciting derbies in English Rugby, and are always fiercely contested. In 2015 they won the inaugural Challenge Cup Final.
X Blades currently manufactures the classic ‘Cherry and White’ Gloucester kit. Some notable current and past Gloucester players include James Hook, Greig Laidlaw, Mike Tindall and John Afoa.
