Leicester number ten Toby Flood has revealed he is "not fussed" about an England recall as he looks to create some festive cheer at the Tigers.
Flood missed out on the victory over New Zealand this month because of a toe injury, with Owen Farrell putting in a strong performance in white.
That could mean the Saracen keeps his jersey for their Six Nations opener but Flood, who kicked 11 points as Leicester beat London Irish 31-9 on Saturday, said he's not fazed about that right now.
"It was a hugely envious position for me because those guys went out there and beat the All Blacks, which is something I've never done," he told the Daily Telegraph.
"But I'm not fussed about the international side of things right now. We've got a really tough Christmas to consider and for me it's just a case of bedding back down into the side.
"My big aim at the moment is hopefully to get a bit form and feel confident going into our final two Heineken Cup group games against Ospreys and Toulouse."
