Matt Kvesic is one player to watch in the Aviva Premiership this season. The 21-year-old German-born back row sealed a move from Worcester Warriors to Gloucester earlier this summer after agreeing a move in February, ending his four-year association with the club.
It heralds a new exciting chapter in Kvesic's blossoming career after the open side flanker, of Croatian origin, was handed his England debut by Stuart Lancaster in June during the Red Rose's tour of South America.
Kvesic made his England bow alongside fellow Gloucester team-mates and Red Rose stars Ben Morgan, Billy Twelvetrees and Freddie Burns, excelling as Lancaster's men secured an emphatic 32-3 win against Argentina.
Such was the impression he made, the England head coach kept Kvesic in his line-up for the following Pumas Test which saw the tourists beat Argentina 51-26 to complete a clean sweep of wins in the South American country.
Kvesic has won many admirers since bursting onto the scene due to his professionalism and winning mentality, two facets which have unquestionably impressed the Red Rose boss. The 2013/14 campaign should see the flanker kick-on.
More than capable at the breakdown, Gloucester's new signing will be key to helping his new club move up the Aviva Premiership table this season. With the aforementioned trio backing Kvesic up, it could be a very exciting season for both player and club.
