With the World Club 7s on the horizon this weekend, Jacob Rowan is praising the impact of Sevens on the squad and it's importance in pre season preparations.
Captaining the Sevens squad to Premiership Rugby Sevens glory, not a bad start in Cherry and White for the Yorkshireman.
"It feels fantastic to have won the tournament, to come here in good hopes and capitalise when we did, then get to the final and win, it's a great feeling.
But did the back rower feel any pressure during the tournament, especially after going through the group stages unbeaten.
"Yeah, there was pressure, but Olly Morgan has been telling us throughout the week that we need to concentrate on our game and I think it showed out there.
Rowan and his Cherry and White teammates experienced differing conditions at The Stoop to the sunshine of Kingsholm a week earlier, and the torrential rain made it difficult.
"We were lucky against Saints when it was dry, but then the rain started coming down. We got a bit tighter and made a few little mistakes but we managed to hold on in the end, which is what matters.
"It was great, there are a few tired bodies out there but everyone was working for one another and it was really enjoyable.
Conceding just eight tries across the six matches played in the tournament, Rowan was thrilled with the impact of the Cherry and White defence.
"It's hugely pleasing, we focused a lot of defence throughout our preparations and it worked well in the first group stage and again in the final. To hold on in the final like that, it's a great feeling.
"It's the first chance to make a statement to the new coaches, and everyone wants to make that statement, I think we have been instilled with is work rate and defence and I hope that showed.
"We've had a tough pre season and the Sevens tournaments and giving us the best preparations for when the season starts."
With Yorkshire Carnegie in town to open up the pre season programme at Kingsholm on Saturday, Rowan can't ignore the prospect of taking on his old team.
"It'll be a weird one, and I've got a lot of friends up there but I'm a Gloucester player now and I'm fully focussed on that.
"It means a lot for me to have the chance to play against them again, and I'm sure whoever plays next week will have a tough game."
Ben Vellacott was one of the standout performers in last week's pool stages and, ahead of Friday evening's Singha Premiership Rugby 7s Finals, told GRTV that he and his team mates will just try and play their own game once again.
Gloucester Rugby number eight Ben Morgan was today named in England's squad for Rugby World Cup 2015, a reward for eight months of hard work recuperating from a serious injury suffered back in January. Ben was one of a number of players who spoke at a press conference following the squad announcement.
Steph Reynolds led from the front once again as Gloucester kicked off their Singha Premiership Rugby 7s campaign in style on Thursday evening. The flyer scored three tries but admitted that he left most of the team talk duties to others.
Olly Morgan led the Cherry and Whites to three wins out of three in Group B of the Singha Premiership Rugby 7s and he expressed his delight in the young members of the squad in excelling in front of a bumper Kingsholm crowd.
Olly Morgan leads the Gloucester Rugby Sevens squad this Thursday in the Singha Premiership Rugby 7s Series at Kingsholm, and he is backing the young side to take the opportunity with both hands as they take to the field.
Speaking to the local media this week, Henry Purdy explained the opportunity available for the Gloucester Rugby to lay down a marker in this summer's Singha Premiership Sevens Series, which kicks off at Kingsholm Stadium on Thursday 20 August.
