Those early World Cup appearances came with the 27-year-old filling in for the injured Mark Cueto, only for the Sale Shark to return with a bang as he helped himself to a hat-trick, as did fellow wing Chris Ashton.
And with full-back Ben Foden also crossing the whitewash, Armitage is eager to get back under the bright lights of the World Cup to show that he shouldn’t be forgotten about.
"I am very pleased with my form. There is still a lot more to come," said Armitage.
"It was tough sitting on the bench against Romania, watching the two wings score a hat-trick and Foden getting over the line.
"I have been working very hard in the games before that and hopefully I will get a run.
"If not, as long as England are doing well, the guys are scoring tries and we are winning that is all that matters."
