England 7s speedster Dan Norton is looking forward to continuing his form in the Cape Town tournament in South Africa this weekend.
Norton socred his 300th try in Dubai last weekend and says he is hoping to become the World’s top try scorer and help his side win majority of the tournaments this season.
“I didn’t think when I first started playing sevens that I’d ever be able to get this many tries in the first place. It’s nice, I had to pinch myself at times. I just trying to run as fast as I can and get as many tries I could. It’s not always a planned move.”
England is pooled with Fiji, France and Kenya in the Cape Town 7s.
Fiji plays France in its first match at 9.59pm on Saturday, then faces Kenya at 1.20am on Sunday before playing England in its final pool match 5.03am.
The Cup quarter-final begins at 11.04pm on Sunday, semi-final will be held at 3.56am on Monday and the final is secluded for 6.44am.
