England rugby 7s captain James Rodwell is looking forward to tonight’s pool game against the Vodafone Fijians.

A win is what he needs to celebrate his achievement for playing in a record 69th consecutive series.

Having finished fifth with a Plate win in Hong Kong last weekend, England and Fiji are in the same pool with Samoa and Portugal. The English side have rested skipper Tom Mitchell and Phil Burgess this weekend.

“I am very grateful to the coaches, I love playing the game and I don’t want to stop,” Rodwell said.

“You ask any player and they want to play every time and I am lucky to still be involved. When I first started I was really excited to be involved with England sevens. Since 2010, I have been full-time and there are no easy games, you have to be on full go just to get out of your group. I have been working hard, trying to keep my form, and the numbers have been ticking over. It’s only been the last few weeks I’ve thought about it (the record) and it’s a nice feeling to still be around.”
