Only Sarries captain Steve Borthwick has more minutes under his belt this season than Fraser, whose rise is all the more impressive when you consider the spate of injuries that threatened to end his career before it had even begun.
Since turning professional in 2008 the flanker suffered setbacks in the form of ankle trouble, a torn knee ligament and a damaged shoulder but took his first-team opportunity with both hands and has not looked back since.
And Fraser has the chance to do it again in England colours, and he admits the hard graft he has put in to get to his current position made the call from England coach Graham Rowntree all the more special.
"I got the call the day before the announcement. I was obviously completely over the moon, the only thing I could say was 'thank you' - it was an incredible feeling," he said.
"England is always something that is quite amazing for any player. It's what you dream about so to get that opportunity is incredibly special and I feel very honoured.
"I've worked hard to get there with the injuries I had and obviously sometimes doubts creep into your mind.
"I got an opportunity with Saracens and had to make the most of it - I would have been the first to admit if I'd messed it up. I have the chance to do the same with the Saxons and I'm relishing the chance to pull on that jersey.
"Rugby is a series of opportunities and it's just about taking them when they come, I guess it's the same for everyone but it's an experience I'm relishing."
Mark McCall's troops are currently one game away from a Heineken Cup quarter-final - with the last-ever game at Vicarage Road this weekend the must-win clash against Edinburgh Rugby - and lie just two points behind Harlequins in the Aviva Premiership.
That, coupled with the imminent move to Allianz Park and the signings of Billy Vunipola and James Johnston, is what Fraser believes made pledging his long-term future to Saracens a no-brainer.
"It's a really exciting place to be at the moment, belief is very high," he added.
"There are a lot of players vying to start all the time. We're about to move to a new stadium which is huge - if you look at the consistent performers in this league, they all have their own place to call home.
"Every season the goal has been to go further in the Heineken Cup and we're certainly capable of doing that again. We've got some exciting signings coming in soon as well so overall it's an incredibly exciting time to be part of this rugby club."
