Wade’s Wasps among favourites for Singha 7s crown

Christian Wade’s seven tries for Wasps will have all the Singha Premiership Rugby 7s finalists on high alert but strong showings from defending champions Gloucester Rugby and Newcastle Falcons have certainly set Friday’s showpiece up nicely.

Wade's performances at the Ricoh Arena on Friday night were the pick of the bunch with the England international making use of his lightning pace to devastating effect as Wasps swept all before them.

They will now take on Exeter Chiefs at next week's final at Twickenham Stoop, the Chiefs having finished runners up in Group B on Thursday evening.

Exeter had a slow start to their Singha 7s competition after they were undone by Gloucester and they will be up against it if they want to make progress to the semi-finals.

Gloucester meanwhile, who topped Group B in convincing fashion, will be up with Wasps as one of the favourites for the title as they go in search of their third Singha 7s success in a row.

The Cherry & Whites first took the Singha 7s crown in 2013 before adding another in 2014 and, with Man of the Round Steph Reynolds on their side, they have the ability to add another feather in their cap.

Reynolds' troops will lineup at the Stoop against Harlequins who managed to qualify from Group C along with Wasps.

A Wade hat-trick in their opening match at the Ricoh put Quins up against it and a defeat to Saracens meant their hopes of making an appearance on home turf were hanging by a thread.

But a 26-10 win over Northampton Saints meant they lived to fight another day and will be looking to draw on the support of a home crowd to get them over the line.

Elsewhere, Falcons sealed their progress with a brilliant display of attacking rugby as they saw off Sale Sharks, Worcester Warriors and Leicester Tigers in front of a packed Kingston Park in Group D.

Mark Robertson was Man of the Round but the Falcons showed that teamwork was the key and will now square off against Welsh side Scarlets.

But they will need to be on guard against the Welsh outfit after Scarlets showed they can mix it with the best when they got their Group A campaign off to a flyer with victory over last year's finalists Newport Gwent Dragons.

However the Dragons ended up on top of Group A and will be looking to go one step further at the Stoop after losing out to Gloucester last time around. 

They will be up first to show what they can do next Friday night and will go against Sale Sharks, who booked the final spot in London after Worcester Warriors missed out by the narrowest of margins.
