Wasps centre Elliot Daly believes his four-try haul in England Under-20's 74-3 romp past Italy was his best yet in a Red Rose shirt.
Rob Hunter’s men cruised to victory at Bath’s Recreation Ground with 11 tries with highly-rated Worcester winger Andy Short also crossing four times.
Skipper Alex Gray also went over with George Ford bagging 24 points, which included a try, as England went for broke.
France are next up for England and despite the impressive win, Daly admits they will have to raise the bar.
“To win 74-3 puts the marker down, it’s definitely the best match I’ve ever played in with an England team and to a man we were exceptional,” said Daly.
“It’s easy to look at the score and say it was a walkover but it didn’t feel like that during the game.
“Our head coach Rob Hunter said after the match that it doesn’t get much better than that.
“But it’s now up to us to build on that and maintain, or better, that level of performance.
“It will be tough to better our performance against Italy, but that’s not to say we can’t – it has to be our aim to get better and better with each game.
“We have a week off now where we can rest up and come back raring to go against France.”
