CUP QUARTER FINAL
Gloucester Rugby (7) 7-19 (7) Harlequins
Gloucester started the Quarter Final against Quins well as after several phases, Rhodri McAtee turned over Charlie Walker and fed Gareth Evans ghosted clear after Reynolds had offloaded well.
Quins, roared on by a healthy support in Twickenham hit back as Jordan Burns picked up a pass out wide and sped through the clutches of Apo Satala to cross for a converted score.
The rest of the first period was cagey with both sides squandering good chances to score, Reynolds and Robson both denied when inches from the line.
It was Harlequins who scored the first points of the second half. Rhodri McAtee mis-controlled a loose ball and the ball was spread wide to Charlie Walker who showed Dan Robson the outside and crossed under the posts.
Quins then struck again, the restart was not gathered and Karl Dickson slipped a tackle to feed Joe Trayfoot who strolled in to seemingly put the game out of Gloucester's reach at 7-19.
Gloucester pressed to get back in the game but small mistakes cost them and Quins saw the game out and played down the clock. There was to be no two-try turnaround from the New York City game and Gloucester's involvement in the Cup competition ceased and then set about winning the Plate competition.
PLATE SEMI FINAL
Gloucester Rugby (12) 26-14 (7) San Francisco 7s
Gloucester struck first in the Plate semi-final for the right to play New York City 7s. The Americans, possessing the Sevens quality of flying Carlin Isles were first on the ball but as Isles looked to back himself against McAtee, the Redruth player beat his man for speed and set the Cherry and Whites away.
Nev Codlin was held up close to the line and McAtee finished what he started to dot down. San Francisco looked to hit back but knocked on in the process of scoring. They finally crossed after a breakaway and Jack Halalilo scored.
Gloucester were struggling to gather restarts and after a series of infringements Gloucester survived and regained the lead, as neat work from McAtee and Burns allowed Reynolds to score his first try of the weekend.
Straight from the start of the second period, Gloucester attacked and as Gareth Evans worked hard to shrug off the tackles, kept the ball alive and fed McAtee who scored his second.
Gloucester had done well to silence Isles but with 4 minutes remaining, he capitalized on a yard of space and despite great work from Reynolds to catch him up, the American just reached the line.
San Francisco then pushed hard at Gloucester to make it an all-American Plate final but then Dan Robson scored a stunner, a great change of pace from the turnover took him clear and a lovely change of balance meant the young scrum half shrugged off the desperate cover tackles.
Gloucester Rugby (0) 14- 33(19) New York City 7s
As Gloucester and New York renewed acquaintances at Twickenham it was the men from the Big Apple who took the first score, after Alosio Yamo Yamo was denied in the corner, he took a more conventional route the second time round to score through the middle following a series of probing runs and missed tackles.
It then got worse for Gloucester, it was Derek Lipscomb who capitalized on a lucky break to score New York's second try. Up until this point the Cherry and Whites had barely had space with the ball in hand and on the stroke of half time they were hit by another sucker punch, Gareth Stoppani made the most of a gap and strode away so at half time New York lead by nineteen points to nil.
It needed a mammoth comeback to see Gloucester leave the World Club 7s with any silverware and a tough task was made impossible when New York struck again through Jon Kokinda.
The Cherry and Whites looked out on their feet at this stage, the experienced New York side were in charge of the game but Steph Reynolds struck and gave Gloucester the slimmest of hopes despite being wiped out as he scored.
Those hopes were extinguished as Joel Augsberger worked his way through to put the game to bed. With the Americans already celebrating on their bench Gloucester probed to finish the weekend on a high.
They did so through Gareth Evans, the young forward showed outstanding pace to beat his man on the outside and romp away to give the travelling masses of Cherry and White supporters in Twickenham a final chance to cheer.
It was perhaps a disappointing end to the weekend for Gloucester after a series of powerful and exciting fixtures at the home of English rugby. But the whole Sevens experience starting with the JP Morgan Premiership 7s has been vital at revealing new talent and giving a young side a taste of rugby at Twickenham up against the best in the world in the Sevens format.
