Farrell Snr has been named as part of an interim management team for the RBS Six Nations, with the Saracens coach joining forces with Graham Rowntree and Stuart Lancaster.
And although the RFU will continue to search for a permanent successor to Martin Johnson, head coach Lancaster has made it clear that he would give some of the young players a chance to make a name for themselves.
That has seen 20-year-old fly-half Farrell, who guided Saracens to the Aviva Premiership title last season, tipped for a place in the side alongside the likes Harlequins captain Chris Robshaw and Gloucester wing Charlie Sharples.
"You don't just give away England jerseys for nothing. It has got to be right by the player. You don't just throw them in," Farrell said.
"But if you have exciting youngsters who will play well in the big games and the big occasions and are not over-awed by it then they have to be looked at without a shadow of a doubt.
"I want England to win. If Owen is playing well enough he will be considered like anybody else. He is part of the pool of great exciting talent."
Farrell will continue working with Saracens until he links up with England for the pre-Six Nations camp in January - and next on his agenda are key Heineken Cup games against the Ospreys.
Performances over the next two weekends of European action will go a long way to determining the shape of England's elite squad, which is due to be named on January 11.
"Between now and the start of the Six Nation there are a lot of big games, Heineken Cup games, to be played," Farrell said.
"Those youngsters we are talking about have to be able to back it up in those games because it doesn't get much bigger than being here at Twickenham with a full house in the Six Nations."
Lancaster vowed to crack down on the cultural and disciplinary problems which contributed to a disastrous World Cup campaign.
Leaked reports into England's failed campaign painted the picture of a dysfunctional squad, riven by a lack of trust with some players motivated more by money than rugby.
Lancaster vowed all that would change, saying: "Environment shapes behaviour.
"For the first 20 years of my life I came from a small farm in Cumbria where you have to graft and work hard.
"I spent the second 20 years in Yorkshire, where you get 'nowt for owt'. There'll be no airs or graces in this camp or this team.
"Little things to me are important. Things like being on time and being courteous at all times. We have to get back to the sense where we are all in it together.
"If we give a strong enough reason to the players about why it's important to be responsible and be respectful of the rose and what the rose represents then everything falls into line behind that."
