Jimmy Cowan's on the move
Former Southland All Black Jimmy Cowan is on the move from Gloucester.
The 51-test All Black halfback has been at the English premiership team since 2011, but told the Gloucester Citizen that he won't to be staying when his contract runs out at the end of the season.
"I won't be back in Gloucester unfortunately,'' he said.
''I don't know where I will be next season, I'm just going through that process now. There's nothing fixed on paper but verbally I have offers. Looking back they haven't won a lot over the last few years and with the nucleolus of the team, a lot of young boys, we really want to win something. It would mean a lot to finish on a high here."
The arrival of Scotland halfback Greig Laidlaw at the cherry-and-whites next season had already cast doubt over Cowan's future at the club.
He would like to go out with a title.
"We play to win, you never go out to come second and this has been a disappointing year but we're coming back, we've had two good wins on the trot and there's plenty to play for with the quarter-final,'' he said.
"You play the game for these type of occasions, I'm really looking forward to it and it's a great chance to win some silverware for the club. Everyone involved in the club wants to win trophies, that's why we play the game and to still be in the position to do that next week is something we are gunning for. We will go out all guns blazing against Wasps."
