Gloucester have confirmed the signing of Northampton second-row Tom Hicks.

The 21-year-old Saints academy product has been a regular for the Northampton Wanderers side in the Premiership A League over the last three seasons and spent time on loan at Moseley in the Championship last season.

Director of rugby Nigel Davies told Gloucester's official site: "Tom is a promising young prospect with the ideal build for a second row in the professional game.

"He's an ambitious young man, and he's opted to join us at Kingsholm because he feels we have a reputation for developing young talent and providing good playing opportunities for younger players where appropriate.

"He's already shown what he can do at A League level and this move is a chance for him to develop his game and push on.

"We see a bit of Alex Brown in him so we're looking forward to Tom arriving, getting down to some hard work with us and seeing where that takes him."
