Gloucester have been buoyed by news that interim England captain Mike Tindall has agreed a 12-month extension to his current deal.

The 32-year-old, who has guided England to three wins in this season's RBS 6 Nations in the absence of Lewis Moody, has made more than 100 appearances for the Cherry and Whites since joining from Bath in 2005.

And Tindall, a World Cup winner in 2003, insists he had no doubts about signing a new contract.

Tindall said: "I didn't really entertain the idea of being anywhere else to be honest. I love the club, the supporters, the area. Signing on again wasn't a difficult decision.

"Bryan Redpath [head coach] and the other coaches have created a great atmosphere around the club and we're all enjoying our rugby.

"This season has been good but we still have some massive games to come which will determine exactly how good it will have been once it's all over. I'm looking forward to playing my part."
