Gloucester Rugby have kept faith with the squad that won three out of three games in the Premiership Rugby 7s pool stages for Friday's finals evening at the Stoop.
Gloucester are, of course, reigning champions and kept their chances of retaining their title alive by qualifying in style from last Thursday's pool stages at Kingsholm.
On the evening, they defeated Exeter Chiefs, London Irish and Bath Rugby to qualify for the semi finals where they will take on Northampton Saints.
Henry Purdy, who moved to Gloucester in the summer, had his first taste of action in Thursday's matches and admitted he'd enjoyed his outing at Kingsholm.
"Last Thursday was my first time out at Kingsholm and it was a great atmosphere. I can't thank the crowd enough, they created a great atmosphere and the boys loved it.
"I was impressed with the standard of our round and watched some of the other legs as well. The level will go up a notch at the Stoop but the boys are looking forward to rising to it.
"Northampton have a good side, I know a few of the boys through England age-grades. They have some quick boys with good off loading games so they will be a big challenge.
"But we can definitely step it up, we have a good squad, good strength in depth and young players who are keen to show what they can do."

Speaking to the local media on Thursday, Matt Kvesic was looking forward to the trip to Newcastle Falcons, and the captain is looking to lead from the front with plenty for the Cherry and Whites to work on.
Gloucester saw a 12-0 lead overturned by Harlequins on Friday night as the visitors ran out 22-15 winners. After the game, Director of Rugby David Humphreys spoke about missed opportunities on the night.
Speaking to the local media on Thursday, James Hudson explained his excitement for tonight's game with Harlequins and that he is backing the Cherry and White squad to impress during the next set of Aviva Premiership games.
Despite a dream start at Kingston Park, scoring a try after just 26 seconds, Gloucester couldn't capitalise against a dogged Newcastle Falcons side. Too many penalties were conceded and too many errors made as the Falcons prevailed 20-10.
There are three changes to Gloucester Rugby's starting line-up for Friday evening's Aviva Premiership fixture away at Newcastle Falcons. Steve McColl will make his first Premiership start for the club.
