Former Gloucester Rugby full back Olly Morgan was a key member of the coaching team as the Cherry and Whites lifted the Premiership Rugby 7s title, and is set to play his part once again.
Gloucester start the defence of their title at Kingsholm on the evening of July 31st. The opposition on the evening will be Bath Rugby, Exeter Chiefs and London Irish.
It's the third season in a row that Gloucester will have hosted a leg of the Premiership Rugby 7s, and Morgan says that it's a great event to take part in.
"To be honest, the 7s is a great event every year. The last couple of seasons have seen the event kick off with the Kingsholm leg, we've enjoyed incredible weather and a huge number of supporters turn up.
"It's also a great chance for a lot of the new players to show the fans, and also the coaches, exactly what they can do. It's a great opportunity, it's a great spectacle.
"The fact that we won it last year may put a bit of extra pressure on to us this time around but, looking at the squad we're hoping to pull together, we hope to be there and thereabouts."
Gloucester only lost out to London Irish in the final in 2012, and qualified for the Finals evening at the Rec 12 months ago. This time, they went one better and Morgan has fond memories of the night.
"Finals night down at the Rec was great. We hadn't actually won the leg at Kingsholm, we finished runners up to Worcester, and went there as underdogs a little bit. I suppose.
"A lot of the first team squad had already flown out for the preseason friendly in Toulon, Rob Thirlby, who had been part of the coaching team, had also gone out there so it was left to Simon Lane, Tim Taylor and myself to run things.
"It was a fantastic night. It was good for us coaches because we were all fairly new to it and also for the players to represent Gloucester and win, which was the main thing!"
And he even owns up to getting slightly carried away in the heat of the moment.
"I loved every minute of it. It was the closest I've felt to actually playing. Even though you're on the sidelines, you do get quite involved with it.
"I actually got quite excited and ended up running halfway on to the pitch when we scored the winning try against Saracens to get into the final. When you look back on it on TV, you feel a bit embarrassed but I didn't care at the time."
