Newcastle scrum-half Lee Dickson believes his England experiences can be of huge benefit to his game, but not at the expense of his Falcons career.
Dickson is looking to build on his international experience
Dickson was brought into the full squad after impressing with the Saxons but is fully aware getting a regular place in the Falcons' line-up is the priority.
He told BBC Radio Newcastle: "I've always wanted to play for my country and get to the top.
"But I've got to put the England stuff aside, knuckle-down and concentrate."
Leicester gave the Falcons a rough ride in their last outing with a 41-14 thrashing but Dickson believes the North East side can bounce back against Saracens on Sunday.
He said: "Obviously the boys had a great game down there [Saracens]. They played really well.
"Now we must forget about the last game at Leicester - it's a new game, new day and we've just got to focus."
