Man of the Round Reynolds puts team first as Gloucester Singha 7s crown

TWM_Singha_200815_0102

Steph Reynolds says the team comes first despite picking up Man of the Round and inspiring Gloucester Rugby to this year’s Singha Premiership Rugby 7s final.

The Gloucester skipper was in scintillating form at Kingsholm on Thursday night as he ran in three tries and pulled the strings as his team won all three of their matches.

An opening double in the Cherry & Whites' first match with Exeter Chiefs set the tone as Reynolds led his side to a 36-5 win.

They followed that with a 31-7 triumph over London Irish before Reynolds and co finished the job with a 24-7 win over Bath.

Those wins mean Gloucester now head to Twickenham Stoop on August 28 looking to make it three Singha 7s titles in a row.

And for Reynolds the individual accolades matter little if his side can't do the business in London.

“It was a brilliant team effort to be honest,” said Reynolds. “I think Dan Thomas was brilliant in the forwards during the groups and his energy was a big thing for us so he will be a key player.

“But everyone stood out for me though and it's hard to single out one player because I think we all pulled together on the night.

“It was great to captain the team because I don't think I have done that since under-15s football so it was a new experience for me but one I relish.

“It's nice to have played well but ti was more important to get through and give ourselves a chance of winning and we have done that but the job is only half done.”

While Reynolds will be remembered for his tries on the night he was instrumental in several of Gloucester's scores and will be vital to their hopes of retaining the Singha 7s crown.
And he believes that with some more training under their belts his side will take some beating in London.

“We were all really comfortable out there and clicked well. We only had a few days training coming into the tournament but that is what pre season is for,” he added.

“It's a great opportunity for the boys to come out early doors in the season and put a marker down by winning the title again.

“It was a brilliant set of performances from us. The main one was Bath in the third game but we had the crowd on side and they were an eighth man.”
