In Gloucester's first game of the 2005/06 season at Worcester Adam was injured only a few minutes into the game. Adam returned from injury in early November, coming off the bench against Newcastle Falcons. He went onto make 16 appearances during the season, however he missed Gloucester's European Challenge Cup victory against London Irish at the end of the season. During the next 2 seasons Adam did not play regularly with stiff competition from James Forrester, Luke Narraway and Gareth Delve. During these 2 seasons he was loaned out to both Moseley and Leeds Carnegie. [ [http://www.planet-rugby.com/Story/0,18259,3551_2925039,00.html Balding moves to Leeds on loan ] ]
