The 27-year-old previously made 35 appearances for the Cherry & Whites between 2018 and 2020.

He left earlier this year to join the Red Hurricanes in the Japanese Top League, but will return for a short stint at Gloucester before heading back to Japan.

Marais will re-join the Gloucester squad for training on Monday, as preparations continue for the eagerly anticipated restart.

He was on the Durban-based Sharks' books between 2012 and 2018.
