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."
