MIKE TEAGUE is set to return for a fourth spell at Gloucester. The 34-year-old back-row forward left the club two years ago along with fellow players Mike Hamlin - who has since moved back - and Kevin Dunn.

Now Teague, who has also played for Stroud and Cardiff, wants to complete his first- class career at Gloucester after being released by Moseley.

'Mike approached us and I have spoken to him,' Barrie Corless, Gloucester's director of rugby, said. 'We would be interested in having him around because he is the sort of experienced player we have been missing on the pitch and on the training field. His attitude and commitment would be a model for young players.'

Teague, who played 275 games for Gloucester, has made 27 England appearances and two for the Lions.

Keith Richardson, the former Gloucester boss, has agreed to become head of coaching at Harlequins. Richardson, who left Gloucester in May after seven years at Kingsholm, will succeed the Australian Bob Templeton.
