Red Roses back Danielle Waterman believes there is still a lot more to come from the side after making it three wins from three in Six Nations by beating Scotland 43-8. 

Wasps FC Ladies' Waterman scored two of England's seven tries in the win in Glasgow as the side secured another bonus-point win in the competition.

England will sit top of the group after three rounds no matter what happens over the rest of the weekend.

“The cliché is that we’re building, we’re a new side, there’s glimpses of unbelievable rugby but there are basic errors that are letting us down at the moment, so that is something we can put right," said Waterman.

"Physically we’re going to have to step it up against the French as they’re an unbelievably dominant side in terms of their pack.

“We’re all enjoying it, loving the challenge and I can’t wait for the next two games."

Pulling it together

At the age of 33, Waterman was the experienced member of the back three against the Scots that included 18-year-old Ellie Kildunne and Charlotte Pearce, 24.

Between them they scored five of England's seven tries and Waterman believes the youth coming through in the squad is energising. "It’s always amazing to score for England, a true honour."

“It’s exciting isn’t it and it’s really brilliant as they’ve got an enthusiasm a courage and a skill set that is second to none," she added.

“Yes, probably the older girls we’re pulling it together like glue but to see them play is just brilliant and it’s really good fun out there."

Waterman's second of the night came from a routine off the back of a set piece and she spoke about how it feels when it all clicks into place

“It’s unbelievable and when you do a training park move, as that came from the scrum and a great ball from Caity Mattinson at nine.

“It’s always amazing to score for England, a true honour."
