He said, " Danny Cipriani was outstanding, he is playing the way everyone knows he can, so as long as the pack keeps delivering we stand a chance of winning a lot of games. He needs to keep delivering at training and in games and it would only be a fool who would not pick someone like that for England."
Regarding the win over Oyonnax Steve said, "Oyonnax don't travel well, we knew that. They are a good home team and they proved that last week. We learned from last week and got the bonus point before half-time which was good."
And with a key clash against London Irish on Friday when the Aviva Premiership returns, Diamond admits his side have had the ideal preparation.
"It's a big build for next week with London Irish at home," he said, "The likes of Rob Miller and Tom Brady are coming to form, they are getting better every time they play.
"The team is playing reasonably well and we are confident but it steps up again next week in the league."
