Wasps boss Ian McGeechan believes England discard Josh Lewsey is "enjoying his rugby" as he continues to make a mockery of his exclusion from this season's RBS 6 Nations.
Lewsey has not played for England since limping out of their World Cup semi-final victory over host nation France four months ago.
And when England head back to Paris later this week for an appointment with the RBS 6 Nations title favourites, Lewsey will be left behind.
After failing to gain a place in any of head coach Brian Ashton's post-Christmas training squads, the 31-year-old might wonder if he will wear an England shirt again.
But Lewsey's display in a stunning 42-34 Guinness Premiership victory over Bath suggests he still has plenty to offer at the highest level.
Wasps carved Bath apart, inflicting a first home league defeat on their west country hosts since November, 2006 through tries from Lewsey (2), England pair James Haskell and Danny Cipriani, plus substitute Dan Leo.
Cipriani also kicked 17 points, yet it was 55 times-capped Lewsey who perhaps delivered the most forceful message to Ashton.
The Wasps full-back - Ashton appears only to view him as a wing - was at the hub of his team's irresistible second-half display when they emphatically wiped out a 20-13 interval advantage.
McGeechan said: "Josh is really enjoying his rugby at the moment, and it shows.
"We made some basic errors in the first-half, and we knew that if we were to do that, then Bath would hurt us. But the 20 minutes after half-time was as well as we've played this season."
