HOOKER Jack Singleton insists there is more to come from him this season as he eyes a return to the England squad.

The 21-year-old front-rower burst onto the scene last term as he quickly established himself in Worcester Warriors’ first-team before earning international recognition.

His breakthrough season was capped off with a surprise inclusion in England’s side to face Barbarians in a non-cap match at Twickenham in May.

He was also part of Eddie Jones’ 30-man touring party to Argentina last summer with England winning the two-match series 2-0.

Although he did not make an appearance during the tour, Singleton got a taste of international rugby and is determined to get onto the big stage.

“I would have liked to have got back into that squad,” said Singleton on missing out on a place in England’s Six Nations side.

“But it wasn’t meant to be so I have just got to try to put my best foot forward for Worcester and that’s all I can do.

“I have been happy to be playing week-in week-out and get a lot of games under my belt this year.

“Everyone has got international aspirations and wants to get back in there.”

Singleton has been Warriors’ first-choice hooker this season and has now racked up 26 appearances in the Aviva Premiership.

But the Worcester academy graduate believes there are areas he can improve on in a bid to bolster his team’s chances of climbing the table and his personal ambitions.

“It has been nice to play as much as I have been doing as it’s my first, full Premiership season,” Singleton said.

“But I feel like I have still got more to give and I don’t feel like I have been playing my best rugby yet.

“I feel like I am training quite well but then I don’t really get to show it in games.

“I am just trying to work as hard as possible to put that right and do as much as I can to play a bit better."

Singleton joined Warriors’ academy in the 2014/15 campaign before making his club debut in their European Challenge Cup clash at Enisei-STM in October 2016.

“I have improved but I still don’t think I have hit my peak yet,” said the ex-Saracens youngster and England U20s ace.

“The coaches here have helped me massively, like Sam Vesty in attack and Omar (Mouneimne) in defence as I feel like I have become a much better defender this year.

“Mef (Davies) and Andy Long who is the throwing coach have brought me on as well around my set piece, but there is still more to come from me.”
