As England coach Stuart Lancaster digested news of the broken leg suffered by his first-choice No.8 Ben Morgan Maximilian Philipp Jersey , a 36-year-old delivered a virtuoso performance in that position which revived calls for his international return.
Nick Easter inspired Harlequins to a 32-12 Premiership victory over Leicester on Saturday, defying his years to make hard yards in the loose and frequently finding holes in the defense with clever footwork and quick hands.
Easter won the last of his 47 England caps in 2011 and has never played for his country -under Lancaster but Morgan's injury could force a -rethink with the Six Nations looming large ahead of this year's World Cup.
""I've stopped speaking to Stuart Lancaster about Nick,"" Harlequins director of rugby Conor O'Shea told reporters. ""Nick wants to play for England.
""Stuart's worry has always been: Will he get to the World Cup with the ability to play at that intensity and pace? Look at that performance against Leicester.""
The highlight of Easter's display against Leicester was the gravity-defying one-handed offload which released Danny Care for the game's opening try.
England have a well-organized and effective forward pack full of powerful scrummagers, strong runners and fierce tacklers but Lancaster is short of game-changers.
A back row of Chris Robshaw, Tom Wood and, in the absence of Morgan, Billy Vunipola does not possess the guile and craft which Easter has in abundance.
""I've been very fortunate to have Nick at the club while I've been here - he plays at a level very few people can - that offload [to Care] wasn't just world class, it was out of this world,"" O'Shea said.
""The harder the going gets and the more we're under pressure, the better he plays - I said to him four years ago I'd stop playing him every week, but I can't stop playing him every week.""

INCHEON, March 20 (Xinhua) -- South Korea on Friday handed over the remains of 68 Chinese soldiers, who died in the 1950-53 Korean War.
At a ceremony held at South Korea's Incheon Airport, the remains and related belongings were officially handed over to China.
The Chinese ambassador to South Korea, Qiu Guohong, covered the coffins with China's national flag, and a brief memorial service was held before the remains were flown home by a Chinese military plane.
The remains of Chinese People's Volunteers were excavated over the past year by South Korea.
Friday's handover was the second one after South Korea returned to China in March 2014 the remains of 437 Chinese soldiers.
The handover is a demonstration of the continued, sound and stable development of China-South Korea strategic partnership, Chinese Vice Civil Affairs Minister Dou Yupei told reporters after the handover ceremony.
According to an agreement between China and South Korea, the two sides consult every year on the handover of remains of Chinese soldiers found in South Korea. A handover is usually held before the traditional Chinese Tomb-Sweeping Day in early April.
The Chinese People's Volunteers (CPV) fought side by side with the army of the Democratic People's Republic of Korea in the Korean War against the South Korean army and U.S.-led UN forces. Tens of thousands of CPV soldiers died on the Korean Peninsula during the war, which ended in an armistice in 1953.
