Star man insists there is more to come from Gloucester Rugby

Gloucester Rugby’s Singha Premiership Rugby 7s dominance was evident for all to see at Kingsholm last night, but captain Steph Reynolds has warned the other finalists there is certainly more to come from his highly-motivated side.

The Cherry and Whites put on an exhibition in front of more than 13,000 fans as they dispatched Exeter Chiefs, London Irish and bitter rivals Bath Rugby to reach the Singha 7s finals at the Twickenham Stoop next Friday. 

Captain Reynolds, a man who has set the Singha 7s alight for many years, showed just why he is such an asset in this format with his electrifying pace helping him bag three tries and a number of assists for his side.

And despite boasting an undefeated record from the group stage, Reynolds insists there is still room for improvement as his side look to earn their third straight Singha 7s title.

“We said before the group that getting through was only half the job and we had to put in some good performances to get some confidence ahead of the final,” said Reynolds.

“I think the performances we have put on so far have been great and there's no reason why we can't go down there and do it again and win.

“We will go down there with a few more days training and full of confidence and that puts us in a great position.
“We will have the chance to go back and work on a few things and make sure we are in good shape to take the trophy again.

“We all train together at Gloucester so any trophy we can bring home is all confidence going into the new Premiership Rugby season.”

Gloucester never looked in trouble during their outing at Kingsholm and Reynolds believes that is largely down to the support of the home crowd.

But he has no doubts that his players will be able to lift themselves for the final in London and put on a show at the Stoop.

“I think the boys really took a lot of going out in front of the Kingsholm crowd and putting on a show and it showed in the way we played,” he added.

“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.

“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.”
