Northampton director of rugby Jim Mallinder believes England duo Ben Foden and Luther Burrell have put themselves in contention to face Australia after spearheading a 41-20 rout of Saracens.
Saints ran in six tries to close the gap on the Aviva Premiership leaders to just one point as the visitors collapsed to their worst loss in four-and-a-half years.
Foden crossed twice and Burrell once in the rout at Franklin's Gardens, prompting Mallinder to claim England head coach Stuart Lancaster must be considering them for next Saturday's opener against the Wallabies.
He said: "Ben's trying-saving tackle on Alex Goode in the first half was very important and I'd like him to be involved in the 23 against Australia.
"He's been getting back to his best and had a good game against Saracens.
"Luther just continues to improve - he's getting better with every single game and plays with a big smile on his face. He's loving playing every week.
"He's playing with confidence and I'm sure Stuart Lancaster will be looking at him."
Man of the match Samu Manoa fully deserved his first-half try, while Jamie Elliott and Ken Pisi also crossed in a match played without 10 England internationals.
"To score 40-odd points against Saracens is pleasing," Mallinder added.
"You never quite know beforehand how teams will react to having players missing, but it was pleasing for us that it was such a good squad effort.
"Our pack played well, our set piece was good and we combined that by moving the ball at the right time. We were clinical with some of our tries."
Saracens director of rugby Mark McCall conceded his side were beaten by the better team after seeing the visitors collapse to a second-successive defeat following last weekend's Heineken Cup loss to Toulouse.
He said: "They were outstanding. When you come down here you have to get the foundations of your game right and their set piece was well on top.
"All the pressure they exerted came from there. Our set piece was poor and they scored too easily. We made a lot of individual areas which proved costly.
"This team hasn't lost two games in a row all that often, although it has happened in the last couple of years
"The two performances have been very different - we could have won against Toulouse in a high standard performance in a close game.
"But we were beaten in every way by a Saints team that was red hot, although we didn't help ourselves. They were much better than us today."
