Waldouck moved to Saints from Wasps in 2012 and eventually departed in 2015 as Luther Burrell and George Pisi dominated the game time at centre.

Waldouck went on to play for London Irish and Ohio Aviators before linking up with Newcastle Falcons.

He also captained Oxford University while achieving his Masters degree in 2019.

And Waldouck is now ready for the next chapter in his rugby career.

“I’m thrilled to be joining Gloucester Rugby, and thankful to be afforded the opportunity by George to be part of his vision for the club” said Waldouck.

“I’m really pleased to be joining a coaching team with plenty of ambition and a fresh perspective of the game.

“I genuinely enjoy the challenge of defence, and combatting the opposition attack, so there’s plenty of hard work ahead, but I can’t wait to get started.”

Skivington believes Waldouck will add plenty to his coaching team.

“He’s a young, enthusiastic coach, who has plenty of experience and deep understanding of Premiership and European rugby.

“He’s an extremely astute scholar of the game, his attention to detail and competitive nature will only drive the players’ standards to the very top.”
