Northampton lock Courtney Lawes believes the current Saints team is one of their most powerful sides they've had in a long time.
Jim Mallinder's troops have made a good start to the season and are currently in second place in the standings after claiming a 19-19 draw against Leicester at Welford road on Saturday.
And Lawes is excited by the team's potential and believes their best is still to come.
"I don't think we've had a team this good, powerful and organised for a long, long time," he told the Northampton Evening Telegraph.
"It certainly showed in the game against Harlequins as well; we're winning and drawing a difficult places.
"We're only going to get better as a team. We've got a lot of new faces and hopefully we can just keep it going and keep building."
The 24-year-old England international won the man-of-the-match award after a superb display against Leicester.
He is keen to build on that performance and is thrilled to do well in Northampton's bid for the title.
"I've been fit for a little while now, which is fantastic," Lawes added.
"I'm just improving as a player and hoping to reach my potential this year and really crack on."
