A hooker who is more than comfortable running with ball in hand, he was an astute choice for Gloucester's Sevens squad last week.
The Cherry and Whites topped the pool with wins over Bath, Exeter and Worcester and Edmonds says the team will go into Friday in good spirits.
"I think we've definitely got a good chance on Friday now. We've got a good team and it's balanced really well between forwards and backs, the way that we're working.
"But we've got to start from scratch, and it's a final, so you've got to treat that with the proper respect.
"Even though it's sevens and it's preseason, we're still representing Gloucester, and we've got to make that count.
"We get paid to win games, to be a team and to deliver for each other and our supporters."
And his first experience of laying in front of his new home crowd was certainly one that will leave a massive impression on him.
"When I first walked past the Shed, I was so keen to put the Cherry and White jersey on, because I've heard so much about the history and tradition of that.
"But it didn't really hit me until after that first game, when the crowd went wild, they were just unbelievable.
"I thought there were at least 20,000 people there, that's how loud it felt. When I looked up and saw it was 8,000, it just blew me away. I can't wait to see this place when it's fully packed."
