Mark McCall demands England call-up for Sarries star David Strettle
Saracens boss Mark McCall says England must give David Strettle a chance after his superb display against Sale.
Sarries cruised to a 32-12 victory over the struggling Sharks, with Strettle the man-of-the-match.
Owen Farrell also kicked 22 points in the win and McCall insists Strettle should join the fly-half in the England camp 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."
Sale remain rooted to the foot of the table as they could only muster four Danny Cipriani penalties.
Boss Steve Diamond is urging his troops to play for the full 80 minutes if they are to escape the drop.
"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."Aviva Premiership. Click here to bet.
