The Official Online RBS 6 Nations Store is open. The store has everything you need to get behind your team during the RBS 6 Nations, plus the store is now fully stocked with a much wider range of rugby merchandise.
However the door could once again open for the 27-year-old with Manu Tuilagi and Brad Barritt – who finished the 2013 RBS 6 Nations as England’s centre pairing – both set to miss the autumn internationals.
And while it might have been seven years since Allen last donned the Red Rose, Burke is adamant the Tiger is a ready-made replacement.
"It is a travesty he only has two caps," Burke said.
"For me, week-in-and-week-out he is the most consistent number 12 in the game.
"Anthony has been the ultimate professional on and off the field – exceptional since his arrival from Gloucester.
"If they overlook Anthony, it's our gain isn't it? But he is there or thereabouts, and I hope he is being talked about by the selectors."
As for Allen himself, he made his 100th Leicester start in the Tigers’ 21-9 win over Exeter Chiefs on Sunday, including playing in four consecutive Premiership finals and claiming man-of-the-match honours in last year’s triumph over Northampton Saints.
But after missing England’s summer tour to Argentina because of a knee operation, the centre is refusing to get carried away with a talk of an international recall.
"I just have to concentrate on the next month or so with Leicester and you never know," Allen said.
"It's happened to me in the past. I was playing well, then got an injury at the end of last year and missed the tour.
"If I keep playing well, I'll take that to the selectors and they will watch my game."
