Gloucester have officially confirmed that Wales scrum-half Tavis Knoyle will move to Kingsholm on a two-year deal.

The 22-year-old has long been linked to a reunion with Gloucester director of rugby Nigel Davies, who worked with Knoyle during their time together at the Scarlets.

Knoyle, who has been capped nine times, will now compete with Jimmy Cowan and Dan Robson for the No 9 jersey.

"I'm extremely honoured and excited to sign for Gloucester for a whole host of reasons, but not least the passionate supporters, the quality of the playing squad, the famous history of the club and because of Nigel Davies who was my coach at the Scarlets," Knoyle told the club's official site.

Talented

"I would like to thank the Scarlets and their supporters for the support I received whilst at the club, but I now look forward to my immediate future at Kingsholm."

Davies added: "I obviously worked with Tavis from his arrival with the Scarlets. He's a very talented scrum-half, and a real competitor.

"He'll add something else to our squad. We've already got two fine scrum halves in Jimmy Cowan and Dan Robson, and Tavis will complement them nicely.

"At 22, he's also still a very young player, despite his considerable experience. His best years lie in front of him and, hopefully, they'll be with Gloucester."
