Gloucester full-back Rob Cook insists there is a great deal more to come from the team as they enter Round Two of the European Challenge Cup.

The Cherry and Whites, who opened their pool campaign with an impressive 55-0 win over Brive, this Saturday make the trip to take on Oyonnax.

Cook, however, has played down last Friday’s clinical victory and says there is still plenty of work to be done if they are dominate their opposition.

“Even though we ran in seven tries against Brive it was not out most clinical performance of the year,” the full-back told Premiership Rugby.

“It was good to nil them of course but we are still working hard to improve week on week.

“We want to go out and win every game that we play, we are seeing how it goes, putting in performances every week and getting used to playing together and hopefully create a bit of momentum to take back into the Premiership.

“We are not doing anything too complicated at the moment, the coaching has been very well organised and I’m sure that will come as we continue.

“We are obviously getting there, the focus is on our game and what we can achieve and we are working hard to improve every time.”

He added on the prospect of facing the dangerous Top 14 outfit: “We are only one from three away from home this season so obviously that is a big area for improvement.”

“Oyonnax are a physical side and we will be taking nothing for granted against them. French sides are always tough at home, they get a big support and we will need to be at our best.”
