Saracens boss Mark McCall described England centre Brad Barritt as "outstanding" on his return from injury against Gloucester.
Barritt missed the November Internationals for England after sustaining an ankle injury in September.
With a showing that will have caught the eye of England head coach Stuart Lancaster, McCall lavished praise on Barritt in only his second game back.
"For Brad to produce that level of performance having had 30 minutes of rugby in five months is quite something. I thought he was outstanding," said McCall.
"He was brilliant. He passed the ball really well, too, and the combination with Marcelo Bosch in midfield was really good."
Overall McCall was delighted with his team's clinical performance against a woeful Gloucester outfit at Kingsholm, with the win keeping Saracens top of the Aviva Premiership.
"I think the first 30 minutes was as good as we've been in terms of our overall game," added McCall.
"Our set-piece was dominant, our kicking game and intensity were at a high level, and we combined that with some really good rugby as well.
"To be 19-0 up away from home against Gloucester takes a bit of doing. It was a great performance.
"To back up the Leicester performance (before Christmas) with two away win away wins like we've done against Worcester and Gloucester tells you a lot about the culture and togetherness at the club. We are in a good place at the moment."
