Comments (1)

Fifteen minutes of TV fame beckoned for Gloucester mayor Chris Chatterton on Wednesday when he appeared on a rugby magazine show.

The mayor was invited to a studio at the Olympic Park in London along with Gloucester Rugby star Charlie Sharples and a group of Cherry and White fans where the Rugby Tonight show, on BT Sport, focused on the Gloucester team.

Mr Chatterton said: “It was incredible to see just how far Gloucester’s support reaches. Even the cameraman was sporting a Gloucester shirt.

“I spoke about the Rugby World Cup coming to the city and how great it is going to be.”

    This is all well and good but, when it comes to Gloucester Rugby, what the club should really be doing is to ensure that Rupҽrt Hardҽn, our first choice and most talented tight head prop, starts as many games for Gloucester as is possible.
