The Premiership Rugby 7s Series Final kicks off with a mouth-watering Anglo-Welsh clash it was confirmed today, while Gloucester's title defence sees them take on the Northampton Saints.
The Final which takes place this Friday at Twickenham Stoop will be contested by the best club 7s sides in England and Wales.
The match between Leicester Tigers and Cardiff Blues starts at 6pm kicking off a high-octane night of 10 rugby 7s matches culminating in the final at 9.45pm.
Tigers and the Blues are followed on to the pitch by a dress rehearsal for the first match of the Aviva Premiership Rugby season when Gloucester Rugby take on Northampton Saints.
The first set of matches is completed by home side Harlequins facing London Irish before Newport Gwent Dragons play Newcastle Falcons in a tournament covered live on BT Sport.
"With the excitement of the Commonwealth Games and the Rio Olympics on the horizon, 7s has really caught people's imagination this summer," said Phil Winstanley, Rugby Director, Premiership Rugby.
"Crowds have been high for the Premiership Rugby 7s with over 35,000 people enjoying the group stages and we are expecting to establish a new record attendance across the Series.
"The addition of the Welsh Regions for the first time creates an added ingredient for this eagerly-anticipated event."
