- England Sevens' two Dans chat about sevens, nicknames and each other
- Watch Caprice's take on 'expression dance' with a bear impression
Ahead of the Emirates Airline London Sevens this weekend, England wings Dan Caprice and Dan Norton bare-all on sevens, their team mates and who throws the best shapes in the squad.
Speedsters Caprice, 21, and Norton, 23, are key to England’s hopes of overhauling New Zealand’s 13 point advantage HSBC Sevens World Series at Twickenham. Head Coach Ben Ryan’s side need back-to-back victories at home and then at the Scotland Sevens next weekend to stand a realistic chance of a maiden series title.
The pair play with a smiles on their faces and plenty were on show as they face fans questions in the IRB Inside Sevens Heroes feature.
Recalling their greatest moments in sevens, Norton said: "For me it was the 2009 London Sevens at Twickenham, coming on and scoring [to level the scores in the last minute of the final], that was a pretty memorable moment to look back on. It was the best day for me."
Caprice added: "Mine was last week in training when I broke through the line, one-on-one with Dan Norton, and I stepped him and he nearly fell over. That was up there, and winning in Dubai [this year] too."
Other topics include top tips for making it in sevens; the sports’ heroes; which one of the pair is slap-head and which is five-head; which country they’d like to take the sevens tour to and who is Ben Ryan’s teacher’s pet.
Then, we learn it bit about Dan Caprice’s love of ‘expression dance’. It’s well worth a look, and remember, he’s agreed to do it again for the Twickenham crowd if England lift the trophy on Sunday.
Tickets for the Emirates Airline London Sevens are available from the Twickenham Stadium ticket office on the day, priced from £15.
