Saracens coach Paul Gustard has paid tribute to Brad Barritt after the centre hit form following his return to the squad.
The British and Irish Lion has been a stand-out for Sarries since coming back into the side from injury.
"Brad Barritt has been probably our most consistent performer over the last five seasons. He is without doubt the best inside centre for England in my opinion" said Gustard.
"He has been magnificent since he's returned. Obviously we are very disappointed as a club that he isn't playing where he belongs and that is at international level.
"Brad was superb last weekend, he made 13 tackles, missed none and he carried and distributed well - he's playing some great stuff at the moment" he added.
