Harlequins director of rugby Conor O'Shea is adamant that Mike Brown is good enough to be England's starting full-back after his effort on Saturday.
Brown was impressive under the high ball as the Aviva Premiership leaders ground out an 18-9 victory at Northampton at Franklin's Gardens.
He started England's last two November Tests at wing and although Brown would play anywhere in an England shirt, he prefers playing at fifteen.
"He liked being back at full-back," said O'Shea.
"He wants to play full-back for England, but he will play anywhere for England, he would play at prop for England. He was outstanding for us today.
"It is a fabulous position for England to be in with Browny, Alex Goode and Ben Foden, they are pretty rich in that position. (Stuart) Lancaster wants to see players putting their hand up for selection.
"It was a great team performance today, Nick (Easter) will keep knocking on the door, and he is in incredible shape.
"I just saw in our senior guys through the week a mentality that they wanted to come here and make a statement. That is 14 wins out of 17 in all competitions and we are playing poorly I am being told."
