The Premiership Rugby 7s Series arrives at Kingsholm in less than a week and speaking exclusively to the club website, Gareth Evans is predicting many of the Gloucester Rugby squad to shine.
"It's a great experience, and all the boys will tell you, that it is a really good opportunity, especially for the younger guys to get that experience on the bigger stage in front of the bright lights."
"I love the Sevens, I've really enjoyed playing in the Premiership Sevens the last few years, and I think I've probably played each one of the last four tournaments in a row.
"It's a great experience, and all the boys will tell you, that it is a really good opportunity, especially for the younger guys to get that experience on the bigger stage in front of the bright lights.
"It's always a good occasion and a really enjoyable format of the game."
A key part of the Cherry and White squad that took the silverware at The Rec as well as the World Club Sevens, Evans experienced a breakthough season at Kingsholm and is backing the young guns in the squad to impress for the holders.
"Obviously Steph (Reynolds) played last year, he's so quick and a really unbelievable talent in space and we hope that he will do well again.
"You've got a few new faces involved, Dan Thomas has joined from the Scarlets and he'll be impressive and has got a great engine on him.
"Lloyd Evans is a bright player and could have a good impact and he has a really strong skillset for the Sevens game."
Injury has prevented Evans appearing in his fifth successive Premiership Rugby Sevens series, but his recovery from a knee injury in progressing well.
"Things are progressing quite nicely for me, I'm nearly three months in and I'm told it's going to be a minimum of six months so all things well and good, when I get to that point I will be able to get the all clear and be all prepared and ready to go again."
Ahead of Friday evening's Aviva Premiership fixture away at London Welsh, Head Coach Laurie Fisher told the local media that he feels that Gloucester are making improvements each and every week but that there's still plenty of work to do.
