 ‘Iron Mike' cuts all ties with Gloucester
MIKE Teague’s disenchantment with Gloucester has led the talismanic England and Lions flanker who played with such distinction for the club to demand the return of his memorabilia at Kingsholm.

Teague told The Rugby Paper that he had advised the Gloucester chief executive, Lance Bradley, of his decision: “I have said I want murals, shirts, whatever. Anything to do with my name I want out of the club and gone.”

Teague, known to Gloucester fans as ‘Iron Mike’, made 291 appearances for the club after watching them from The Shed as a youngster.

He made his debut at 18 and went on to a stellar career in the back row for England and the Lions, winning the player of the series award for the Lions after their 1989 triumph against Australia.

Teague added that he liked Bradley, but that he did not like the way the values at the club had changed.
