Lawes' last start for England came against France during the RBS 6 Nations but a disappointing performance at flanker has seen him come off the replacements bench when winning his subsequent four caps.
Competition in the second row is strong with British & Irish Lion Geoff Parling, Joe Launchbury and Dave Attwood competing for places - but Lawes is happy with his current form.
"I've been fit for a little while now, which is fantastic," said Lawes.
"I'm just improving as a player and hoping to reach my potential this year and really crack on.
"I don't think we've had a team this good, powerful and organised for a long, long time.
"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."
