ANDREW Stanley is to leave Gloucester to take up a rugby role with one of the top private schools in Cheltenham.

Stanley, who took over as Gloucester’s forwards coach last summer following Carl Hogg’s departure to Worcester Warriors, will assume his new full-time position as director of rugby at Dean Close School at the start of September.

The announcement of Stanley’s Kingsholm departure follows the confirmation of Australian Laurie Fisher as Gloucester’s new head coach earlier this week.

Fisher, currently director of rugby at ACT Brumbies, was a specialist forwards coach with Brumbies and Munster before taking up his current position with the Canberra-based club.

As expected, Gloucester have confirmed that Trevor Woodman will continue in the part-time scrum coach role that he took on towards the end of last season.

Stanley has had a long association with Gloucester starting as a player before moving into coaching.

The back row forward made almost 200 appearances for the Cherry and Whites before retiring from senior rugby in 1998.

After a spell as director of rugby with Hartpury College, the RFU Level 5 coach moved to Worcester Warriors as their academy manager in 2005 before returning to Gloucester in the same role at the start of the 2012/13 season.

    Laughing at the clueless Gloucester Rugby and Rupҽrt Hardҽn hating troll "CastleGrim" aka "P_I_Staker" pretending that he knows anything about rugby or that he is remotely interested in Gloucester Rugby. He is getting so upset because his "partner" has sprung a leak and Halfords isn't open so that he can get a puncture repair kit. Ha! Ha! Ha! Ha! Ha!

    The multi-ID troll, CastleGrim/P_I_Staker, is a sad lonely gullible old man. His pretence to being a Gloucester Rugby supporter is absolutely hilarious. He has no idea where Kingsholm is or who any of the Gloucester Rugby players are. Sad... very sad indeed! #Harden owned the number 3 shirt last season without a doubt.

    Oh which troll shall CastleGrim be today? Is it "P_I_Staker" or " Walker100g" or maybe he's NOTArugbylover or peh45. Whichever one he decides he is, he will invariably be absolutely clueless. #Harden owned the number 3 shirt last season. He had no real competition for it.

    I love the way, week after week last season, that Rupҽrt Hardҽn planted a great big dollop of egg on the face of the multi-ID troll P_I_Staker/CastleGrim/Walker100/Walker100a/Walker100b/Walker100c (whichever one he thinks he is today). The troll wouldn't know a decent tight-head if he was slapped around the head by one, though he would enjoy the experience immensely.

    The BANNED multi-troll Walker100a/b/c/d/e/f/g/ and so on, now calling himself CastleGrim/P_I_Staker, etc. is upset because he has been found out using another of his Gloucester Rugby hating troll identities. Now he is on his big-baby anti-Rupҽrt Hardҽn mega-rant just because Harden proved him so wrong time after time over the last two seasons with his brilliant displays of tight head rugby.

    What a complete and utter sado "CastleGrim" aka "Walker100d" aka "P_I_Staker" is. He is a total loser and the most pathetic person ever. No wonder he has been BANNED under his numerous previous troll identities. He knows absolutely zilch about rugby union. #Harden proved time and time again for Gloucester Rugby, what a class act he is and why the scrum became less of a force without him.

    Who cares what the Gloucester Rugby and Rupҽrt Hardҽn multi-troll and RENT-A-QUOTE "CastleGrim" aka "P_I_Staker" thinks?! He isn't a Gloucester Rugby supporter and he is the most clueless person ever when it comes to rugby union.

    Let's face it, the so-called "CastleGrim" aka "P_I_Staker" is just the same clueless old Gloucester Rugby hating multi-identity troll who has never been to any Gloucester Rugby game at Kingsholm, let alone any away and he has no idea about front row play or anything else about rugby union. He is totally CLUELESS!. # Rupҽrt Hardҽn - Gloucester Rugby's stand-out tight head over the last few seasons.

    It's hilarious the way the RENT-A-QUOTE and Gloucester Rugby and Rupҽrt Hardҽn hating multi-troll switches from his "Wallker100" series of identities to his new "P_I_Staker" identity expecting everyone to take him seriously. Rupҽrt Hardҽn - Gloucester Rugby's stand-out tight head from the last 2 seasons.

    ...And up pops the Gloucester Rugby and Rupҽrt Hardҽn hating multi-troll and RENT-A-QUOTE, "CastleGrim" aka THE BANNED "Walker100d" aka "P_I_Staker", with his usual drivel demonstrating again that he hasn't got the first clue about rugby union. Remember, he has never been to any Gloucester Rugby games and he has no idea where Kingsholm is or who any of the players are. He most certainly has never, ever played the game and, once again, he has just proven how clueless and dull he is.
