Saracens boss Mark McCall believes David Strettle's man-of-the-match performance against Sale could win him an England recall.
Strettle scored his first Premiership try of the season and gave a good allround display as his side secured a deserved 32-12 victory at Vicarage Road against the tournament's bottom-placed team.
Charlie Hodgson came off the bench to score Sarries' only other try and Owen Farrell, who impressed at fly-half, kicked 22 points in the win.
McCall insists that Strettle could join Farrell in the England set-up when Stuart Lancaster announces his Six Nations squad on Wednesday.
"David Strettle was made man-of-the-match today and he was magnificent," he said.
"He's really relished this opportunity to play on the left wing and England don't have that many natural left wingers.
"No-one's been putting their hands up as an out-an-out starter and the last five weeks has seen some of the best rugby I've seen from him.
"We'd like to be scoring more tries and we've done that in certain games in Europe but we were dominant in the first half as well here and that is a good sign.
"We just couldn't go more than three phases without Sale giving a penalty away - that's not our fault - and Owen [Farrell] quite rightly kicked all the penalties to build a good lead so I am not too worried about the tries."
Meanwhile, Sale's director of rugby Steve Diamond urged his side to concentrate for an entire 80 minutes if they want to avoid relegation.
"We came down here looking for a performance and trying to stay with them for the first 60 minutes, which we managed to do," he said.
"Then we conceded a soft try, really, once Charlie Hodgson came on that opened us up and then another basic error where they chipped through and scored.
"So we're disappointed with that, but for the first 60 minutes we were still in the game - if we could've just sorted our tackle awareness out in getting away from the ball we'd have been competitive.
"We've just got to stick to what we do in the league and hopefully our endeavour will show.
"We proved last week against Worcester that we can be competitive right the way through but when you come up against a top four side like this, if you're off your metal in the last 15 minutes they'll make you pay."
