THE line-up for the Premiership Rugby Sevens final has been completed after Northampton Saints and Newcastle Falcons made it a clean sweep of qualifying hosts.

Gloucester swept all before them in a commanding performance at Kingsholm on Thursday. The hat-trick of victories ensured the Cherry and Whites booked their place in Friday’s finals at the Stoop alongside London Irish and previous qualifiers Cardiff Blues and Newport Gwent Dragons.

Leicester Tigers and Harlequins also advance to the finals where Gloucester will be aiming to retain the title they won last year.
