It wasn't the silverware they set out to win this year, but the ACT Brumbies are celebrating nonetheless after claiming the inaugural World Club Sevens title overnight.
Two weeks after falling short in the Super Rugby final, the Brumbies claimed a 17-14 victory in the final against the Auckland Blues in London.
Winger Henry Speight showed his explosive running is perfectly suited to rugby sevens, not only scoring the winning try but also taking out player of the tournament on Monday morning.
With the clock ticking down in the final against the Blues, Speight sprinted clear to end the Brumbies' season on a high.
It was the flying Fijian's second try of the game and the perfect send off to departing players Colby Faingaa, Ian Prior, Zack Holmes and Tom Cox.
"It means a whole lot to win this. It's not only for us but for the whole Brumbies team back in Canberra," Speight said after the game.
"We've been though the whole season together and it's great to end on a good note and take some silverware home.
"We went into that game just thinking of playing for each other and playing for the jersey."
But they almost didn't make the semi-final, let alone win the tournament.
They were trailing 12-5 against Moscow in the quarter-final, having had Jordan Smiler sent off for a dangerous tackle.
But the Brumbies dug deep and turned it around to win 22-17 and progress.
Brumbies captain Robbie Coleman said it showed plenty of heart to beat Moscow and then knock off top seeds Buenos Aires in the semi-final.
"Henry Speight is a special player at 15-a-side rugby and he's just shown his versatility here by dominating the sevens," he said.
"It was nice for us to have some Fijian influence come through in the way we played.
“Great to bring some silverware back to Canberra and finish the season on such high."
