- England Sevens start well at European Sevens Grand Prix in Manchester
- Simon Amor's side record wins against Romania, Belgium and Russia
James Rodwell believes England have more left in the tank after winning all three of their games on day one of the Manchester leg of the European Sevens Grand Prix Series in Salford.
Simon Amor's side were in impressive form at Manchester’s AJ Bell Stadium, starting brightly and crossing the tryline five times against Romania to run out 42-12 winners.
They followed that by defeating Belgium but left their best performance for last, dominating a skilled Russia side to win 26-0.
But while pleased with the results, England’s Rodwell believes there is still plenty more to come from the current European Sevens Grand Prix Series leaders.
“The performance against Russia was definitely the best performance of the day,” 30-year-old Rodwell said.
“The boys were a little bit disappointed with the way we played in the first two games, even though we got the wins.
“But for us at this stage of the season it’s all about the performances. We conceded tries we shouldn’t have and there were other things we were trying to correct as the day went on.
“We’re confident going into every game but we’re looking to build on each performance. We’ve put down a marker and we’re looking to improve on it on Sunday.
“We know if we put in the performances we’re capable of beating any team in the world.”
