Sale Sharks fly-half Danny Cipriani insists he still has a lot of work to do before he reaches his full potential, despite enjoying one of the best weeks of his career.
The number 10 came off the bench last Saturday to have a hand in helping England, who are priced at 1.80 to win the Six Nations, to beat Italy at Twickenham.
The 27-year-old scored a try and a conversion in the 47-17 victory to keep the Red Rose on course to lift the trophy as well as maintain hopes of a Grand Slam.
The Sale man was making his first Twickenham appearance since 2008 and admitted that he is keen to get more international game time under his belt leading up to the World Cup.
Cipriani has also impressed at club level this week, after penning a new two-year contact, he played a big role in helping the Aviva Premiership outfit to beat Saracens 14-10.
However, the England international insists that he still has a lot more work to do if he is to achieve the levels he knows he can reach.
Cipriani said: “I’m proud of what I’m achieving and credit to the coaches here who have pushed my case for England.
“It is exciting because I’m still trying to reach the top.
“The challenge when you’re at the top is trying to stay there but I’m still fighting to get there and I’ve got that fire in my belly.
“There is no hesitation from me and I will not stop as I try and get there.”
