England are determined to end a disappointing HSBC Sevens World Series season with a bang on home soil.
Ben Ryan’s men have under performed for the majority of the campaign despite winning in New Zealand, but have the chance to make up for it at Twickenham this weekend.
And with a World Cup on the horizon, key try-scorer Sam Edgerley believes England have plenty to prove.
Having claimed third place in Scotland last week, the 21-year-old is confident of going out on a high in London.
“It has been a tough season for us, but we have been working really hard over these last few weeks to put it right,” said the former Esher man, speaking at Wellington College where he passed on tips to the winners of the Rosslyn Park HSBC National School Sevens competition.
“We really want to show our fans at Twickenham that we are great players and we are a great side.
“We are going to do everything in our power to put on a performance for everyone at Twickenham.
“We have got the World Cup coming up as well so it is important for us to get momentum going into that
“Twickenham for me is my favourite tournament with the home crowd and all our family and friends there, and we want to do everyone proud.
“We are going to go all guns blazing but that momentum going into the World Cup is really important.”
