Munster & Ireland Forward Moves To Gloucester On Loan Deal

Loan deal.

Munster hooker Mike Sherry has signed a short-term loan deal with Gloucester that sees him move to the Premiership side until the end of May.

The 30-year-old made his Munster debut in 2009 and has scored 12 tries in 108 appearances for the province to date. Sherry has one Ireland cap to his name having made his debut in 2013.

But the Limerick man has struggled massively with a number of injuries over the last few years and has found himself down in the pecking order this season, playing just 9 appearances sine April last year.

Gloucester have acted quick after their first-team hooker James Hanson was rule out for the rest of the season with a serious achilles injury.

MeanwhileStephen Fitzgerald has also signed an extension to his loan deal with Connacht and will remain at the Sportsground for the remainder of the season.
