Henry Paul has signed a new three-year
contract with Gloucester and vowed to see out his rugby career at Kingsholm.A statement on the club's website says that Paul will remain with the
Cherry and Whites.
The deal,unlike Paul's initial arrangement after he joined Gloucester from league giants Bradford Bulls in October 2001,does not include Rugby
Football Union funding.Paul's new signature will end stop speculation that the former rugby league star may have wish to return to the other code.The
New Zealand-born centre, made his name in rugby league with Wigan and Bradford before switching codes with financial backing from the RFU.He has made
three Test appearances for England and been a mainstay of the Sevens team in recent seasons.Paul is currently enjoying his best season with
Gloucester,having produced a string of top-drawer displays.He currently tops the Heineken Cup points chart with 97,and will be a key man in next
Sunday's European quarter-final against Wasps.
