This time round, despite not winning their group stage, the team qualified as runners up with wins against local rivals Bath 19-29 and the Exeter Chiefs 19-28, while Worcester Warriors topped the table undefeated.
Joining Worcester and Gloucester in the final this Friday are group winners Newcastle and Harlequins, as well as runners up Leicester Tigers and Saracens.
The team will face Newcastle and Saracens in their group stage hoping to earn a place in the final trophy match, Gloucester Rugby 7s skipper Martyn Thomas emphasised the importance of these games to progress in the competition.
"Our main objective is to win the next couple of games. Then the final, if we get there, anything can happen. So, we're coming here Friday to really win some silverware."
The Gloucester man also hailed fellow player Olly Morgan for taking on coaching the 7s team, after Rob Thirlby left to join the rest of the team in at a preseason camp Tignes.
"Olly overlooked Rob in training last week, and he's been in the business a long time. He knows the game inside and out, everyone looks up to him as a player, so he's a great person to have around."
